I don't know. Is it funny? You posted it with a question mark .... On first veiw ... no, it's not all that funny, necessarily. But I think you must see some humour in order to post it in the first place. I don't know Wayne. Is it funny? If so, why and how is it funny?
Some unfortunate dude is driving a high-tech machine with many killing/dominating capabilities, and yet he wants to use a low-tech weapon, a sword, to actually make contact with his apparant opponent. How is it funny?
I'm not saying it's not funny , ... but it probably isn't according to my particular sensibilities, and yet, to yours .....? I don't really get the possible humour.
Maybe the guy doesn't want to use an impersonal method of killing; Maybe he wants it to be more personal?
I have no idea.
