He is cracking jokes about the murders, he is so comfortable with the fact that he had just been an accomplice in the murdering of 4 people that he is making jokes about it.

Gimpel is deceived daily by all the passer-bys in town, and is even tricked into marrying a “whore” against his better judgement. Elka, his wife, “[bore] a bastard” and Gimpel was fully aware of it, but allowed himself to become naive to this fact, and loved Elka and the child nonetheless. When Gimpel finds “a man’s form…in [his] place…laying next to Elka,” he goes to the Rabbi who tells him to go divorce her, but Gimpel naively convinces himself he simply saw a “shadow.” Later on, people continue to tell Gimpel that his “children” are not his, but he heeds his apprentice’s advice by “ignor[ing] it (the claims) as [he] ignore[d] the cold of last winter.” After the apprentice gives Gimpel this advice, Gimpel finds “the apprentice lying down beside
