I don't think this mocks death like "Haha, Joe died!" as much as it mocks social paranoia and overblown reactions. A commercially bought perfume that needs a disclaimer for anthrax of all things is funny, jokes about tragedy itself arguably aren't. Also, not only is humor a coping element its also part of human nature.
