Mover over Heath Ledger. We have a new Joker. The online communities are buzzing about the Obama Joker poster – the face of US President Barack Obama portrayed as the Joker with a caption “socialism” below. These malicious posters have started appearing in Los Angeles.
According to LA Weekly , “Obama is shown with white makeup on his face and, like the Joker in the Batman movie, he has his mouth slit wide open with the word “socialism” on the bottom. The poster has been plastered on freeway columns and other public places around the city.”
As of this posting, no one has claimed responsibility for this very controversial poster. Then again, caricatures are nothing new for famous political figures like former US President George W. Bush. Politics aside, I happen to like the creativity of this Obama Joker poster. Why so serious?
And since we’re talking Joker anyway, why don’t you check out these great Joker quotes.
