Actually, humor is often a very effective way to alleviate pain. A couple decades ago, one of my cousins (who was then on active duty in the U. S. Air Farce) repeated some of the jokes about the space shuttle Challenger disaster that were making the rounds at his command during a family clambake. A couple examples:

>> NASA -- Need Another Seven Astronauts

>> NASA -- Now Accepting Seven Applications

He had a whole string of them, but these are the ones that come to mind.
