* This is how ComicBook/TheJoker sees many of his murders: Simply as pranks. Part of the Jokers warped world view is that life itself is just a cruel joke, so he sees no difference between a classic pie in the face, or a poison pie full of acid. Occasionally, he'll pull a completely harmless joke just because the victim is clearly pissing himself in fear and expecting the worst.
