Low Comedy and High Coincidence in 1 Samuel 24

Commentaries are not known for their humor but I did chuckle when I read this remark concerning 1 Samuel 24.
In another combination of low comedy and high coincidence, Saul decides to "relieve himself" (literally to "cover his feet") in the very same cave in which David and his men are hiding from him (24:4).
