Joker? No

People keep calling the Colorado nutbar, James Holmes, “The Joker” because he died his hair orange…and apparently called himself that. Here is a photo from his court appearance:

But I wish people would keep calling him “The Joker”. For a start The Joker has never had red hair.

From Wikipedia:

The old Batman Joker played by Cesar Romero always had green hair:

Jack Nicholson played The Joker also…green hair:

Heath Ledger‘s fabulous Joker also…yep…had green hair:

So that settles it…none have bright orange hair…that just makes James Holmes a sad ginger c*nt.

      I wondered about the red/green thing myself. Only clown I thought of with red hair was Ronald.

        Or this guy. Gaweth Hughes who dressed (and get arrested) as Ronald McDon­ald and sit­ting on a 140k+ salary after grad­u­at­ing work­ing as a hos­pital porter.

    And they were better dressed too.

    Watching him on TV, do you think he’s faking it?

    • Michael

       Of course he is… he is sitting up his defense.

      I was trying to guess that (shit we can’t do anything else) and they had some expert looking at the video on the news in USA in TV3’s news – the suggestion he was coming off drugs or had been medicated arose.  He did look a bit like our own Samari Sword guy…..remember those boggled eyes?

  • le sphincter

    Wasnt the Joker description his own ?

    ” that just makes James Holmes a sad ginger c*nt.”

    Yeah  with access to an arsenal of weapons that should be banned from public ownership …

    “The Riddler” has orange hair.  Search Google Images for “Batman Riddler” for a profusion of ginger.

    If I’d made that bad a job of dying my hair, I’d probably want to shoot people too.

    Strangely similar idea, a mix of Ronald McDonald and death character Ryuk.


    This is actually a mix of the manga character Ryuk, a God of Death, from the manga Death Note, and obviously Ronald McDonald

    you’re wrong on cesar romero always having green hair.  look up images for cesar as joker and you’ll fing he sometimes had orange hair.  I remember him having orange hair from the tv series I watched as a kid.
