Are UI designers too serious?

Just looking at some recent tweets by Jason Fried:

"It's fun searching for our next UI designer. So many people have such diverse skills these days. Big change from a few years ago. But few few designers use words like fun, delightful, uplifting, playful, feel-good to describe their work. Too much seriousness! I want to hire a UI designer who loves designing delightful products. Everyone is "slick" - who can design interactions that make you smile?"

What do you guys think? - Justin
