Makes sense. Fenster is the German word for window. Soooo...defenestration is...unwindowing someone. Or throwing them out the window, whichever.

Think the word is funny? Look up the Defenestration of Prague... That's a funny moment in history! Who the heck throws someone out of a monastery window?!
