Joker Theory.

Here's a theory I just thought up on The Joker. Joker breaks the fourth wall occaisonally, almost acknowledging he is part of a comic book and is not real. Maybe THAT'S why he does what he does! Obviously, since he's a comic book character, he can't really KNOW anything, but what if that's how the writers intend it to be? Joker's actions have no real consequences (since he "knows" he is in a comic book) so he just kills. Life really is just a big joke for him, since he doesn't exist!

Since humans don't really exist, maybe Joker is the only sane one.
