In the words of Miss Violet Chachki:
"Pain is beauty, and I'm the prettiest".
I read somewhere that the problem with this Joker is that we're living in Gotham.
I didn't realize how true this was until I saw the audience actually laughing at the horrors that were being presented to them. Like Arthur, they laughed when they weren't supposed to, clapped when they weren't supposed to, and sympathized to things they weren't supposed to.
Shit, I don't know how I should feel myself.
