Jewish humor as "one kind of defence"

from Rick Richman's blog, Jewish Current Issues:
An ordinary Jew is stranded in no-man's land sometime during World War I.
Suddenly he finds himself staring into the beam of a German sentry's searchlight.

"Halt," shouts the guard. "Halt or I'll shoot."

"Are you crazy," says the Jew, "can't you see that I am a human being?"
