I won't comment much on your personal comments however your history seems to be lacking. Swords and bayonets were used extensively in a small and insignificant war known in some places as the war of northern aggression and in others as the late unpleasantness between the states(1861-1865). Swords were still used , though not as widespread, in WWI(1914-1918) and WWII(1939-1945) . The US armed forces still use swords as part of the dress uniform. In its time the sword was a symbol of honor and virtue; not quite the same as "barbaric"
The firearm that most people know today is a very recent developement in history ( say around 1900) and the repeating firearm is barely even 150 years old.

The joke was funny the first time I read it several years ago. I still chuckle at it and even did so after I read your post. However, not getting the reaction that you wanted to your post and then calling the respondents weirdos with to much time on their hands and insinuating that they have no common sense is a bit juvenile.
