"Operating system behaves as per design". Not funny, is it?
When a crash occurs in Kernel Mode, the operating system's task is to preserve your data. Unlike a crash in Application Mode, it can't recover and continue.
Therefore, it dumps memory to disk using a cut-down device driver and displays a message. What do you expect?
And since writing device drivers is very difficult, yes, they sometimes crash. And often these are drivers not written by Microsoft.
Linux and VMware aren't immune to Kernel Mode crashes, and neither was the Amiga. So where's the joke? I don't get it.

Two lions escape from the zoo and split up to increase their chances. When they finally meet after two months, one is skinny and the other overweight.
The thin one says, "How did you manage? I ate a human just once and they turned out a small army to chase me with guns and nets, it was terrible. Since then I've been reduced to eating mice, insects, even grass."
The fat one replies: "Well, *I* hid near an IBM office and ate a manager every day. Nobody even noticed!"
Samsung HDDs. They'd sometimes make a strange clicking noise and the BIOS wouldn't find them.
If you rapped them on the top with your knuckles, or gave a swift tap with a screwdriver handle, they'd spin up and you'd be able to copy the contents across to a replacement drive using Ghost.
