a ironic perosn has lots of jests

2. Mashead: newspaper::credits: film.
Plz show the bridge.
I think I agree somewhat with you. The main point to be ironic is to give amusement. And jest is to give amusement as well. But "irony" focuses on "contradiction of ideas and "jest" is due to "lack of seriousness". They are perfectly arranged on the same line.
2. I think it is masthead : newspaper
The masthead of the newspaper is used to "consisting of the title of the publication and its address, the date of the issue, and sometimes the names of owners and editors and the subscription and advertising rates " (Merriam-Webster Unabridged)
In short, masthead shows the credits for those who print the newpaper. The credits of a film, which is often at the end of it, shows who to thank as well.
