Well, of course where are we if we can't see the funny side of many a serious thing? There's fair and reasonable political correctness (as it so often benefits the underdog and dispells bullying) and obviously there's the ridiculous too.
Personally, I think the stealing of this ship and the quite likely horrific outcome that could (and I'm sure often does) follow for all involved is very sad. And it's just a bit mean if you think of the various families round the globe waiting to hear what that very outcome will be.
All for p*ss taking and anyone who knows me will know of my often quite irreverent and dark take on humour, but let's not get into one about a) what humour is and b) anything to do with PC behaviour (yawn).
And you don't need to have your sense of hunour removed to do this job. But believe me, sometimes it helps.
