humor that deals with unpleasant aspects of life in a bitter or ironic way
Black humour is when, for example, a man takes off his belt to hang himself, and his trousers fall down. Another example of black humour, "Suicide just isn't funny, no matter which way you slice it," is an effective satire at the way that suicide is treated in mainstream western culture, insinuating that attitudes towards suicide are even more morose or morbid than the act or mental condition leading to it.
