Top Definition
Sense of humor that arises from stressful, traumatic or life-threatening situations where death seems to be an inevitability. Different from black humor in that comments of this sort are made by the person/persons affected (i.e. about to die).
Emissary: We will block out the sun with our arrows.
Spartan (gallows humor here): Then we will fight in the shade.
