Humor and Blood

Blood and humor don't seem like they should fit together but for some reason they sometimes do. I'm not sure anyone would laugh at a gut wound, but off someone's limbs and it's hilarious. Of course I'm thinking of the black knight of the Holy Grail, Dan Ackroyd's Julia Childs sketch from SNL and the Tarantino's Kill Bill movies. The same ploy was also used in the movie Anchorman I mentioned a couple of days ago. I don't understand this phenomenon but I always laugh. Is delimbing someone the ultimate slapstick?
