Not really related, but the term terror management made me think of it. Apparently humor is one of the most effective ways to prevent panic and remain calm in life/death situations.

For example, Navy pilots doing aircraft carrier landings often make morbid jokes about their own potential fatality during the mission briefing. Soilders do similar shit. I think it's probably pretty easy to see how it works, but it's interesting nonetheless.
