What is the Joker? Why is he so obsessed with the Batman? Why do people find him so relatable? The Joker represents the common man pushed to the absolute brink of insanity. The Joker stands at the very edge of the cliff that separates the human from the inhuman. And he is more than happy to step out of bounds and become a demon. Maybe he already has. Maybe he is about to. His love story with the Batman is only one side of a larger equation none of us might ever be able to understand.

All It Takes Is One Bad Day
Can we even blame him? The Joker suffered the worst day of his life. He lost his job, his wife, his unborn child, and his self-respect. Like Batman once said – the World only makes sense if you force it to. The Joker forced himself to understand the ways of the world. And he broke.

The Real Joke Is Your Stubborn, Bone-Deep Conviction That Somehow, Somewhere, All Of This Makes Sense! That’s What Cracks Me Up Each Time!
All this while, it was not the Batman trying to show Joker the way. It was quite the opposite. The Joker was trying show Batman that all of this never made any sense.
A Single Tiny Candle, Shining In The Ugly Dark. I Laughed And Blew It Out.
The Joker does not care about pleasantries. He is no longer human. He will happily do the bloodiest acts and not even flinch.
You’ll Always Have Me To Dance With
