It is in the unconcious that the violence is found. The whole theory is that if you examine a joke with an eye to unconscious impulses, there is always a root of anger and fear. It is what makes humor humor. It's not something that everyone thinks about, obviously, and is not necessary for enjoyment of the joke. In fact, most of the time, analyzing the humor spoils the joke.
