you know what i don’t see enough of? circus kid dick grayson critiquing the joker because he’s a bad clown. not like, bad, and also a clown. but bad at being a clown. i want to see dick grayson taking the existence of this horrible clown very personally as a matter of professional pride. he has known clowns, and you, sir, are no clown. the joker is an insult to the legacy of emmett kelly and this shall not stand.

Does the Joker have an egg in the official clown headquarters?

the clown egg registry

i forgot about the clown egg registry

do you think they refuse because he’s not a real clown

like someone inquires about the joker and so they put out a press release to state that not only is he not registered with clowns international, they will not be accepting applications from the fucking joker, because he’s not even a clown and he doesn’t even wear makeup, you don’t get to register your regular-ass non-clown face

batman has to theoretically protect the fucking clown egg registry from the joker throwing a tantrum, but quite frankly he doesn’t have to do much because it’s the joker versus an army of real actual clowns defending the history of their noble profession

To think that I bought a copy of The Killing Joke when I could’ve held out for the *finest* Joker storyline. 

I hadn’t realized that Pratchett was referencing a real thing in… was it Men at Arms?
