There’s nothing funny about nuclear weapons, waste, or reactors, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find ways to laugh.  Satire, sarcasm, or just an instinctive response while riding a bomb into Armageddon – it’s human to find laughter or at least amusement in the worst of circumstances.  Here are a few of my favorites.
