The following is an excerpt from "Colloquial Danish": Pamela: Er hun blevet kønnere nu? Martin: Jo, det synes jeg.

Why does Martin answer the question with "jo" instead of with "ja"?

Jo can also be used as a casual affirmative (speech only). Martin could also say ja but he's being a tricky pickle.
