You are "meant" to find the attitude of the speaker, his family, his social group, so stupid as to be funny, with the assumption that collective mockery will in some small way ameliorate the situation - but you probably think that you're "meant" to find violence against women funny. Which is why I say black/gallows humour should not be presented to a general audience.
