Chapter 4: A Lesson on Jokes
Poor Courage soon found himself captive of the Joker who was certainly going to do the poor pink dog some harm.
"Oh, I know it won't end well" sighed Courage who was tied up.
"First lesson in clown college" said the Joker to which his thuggish clowns held up some pies, "we pie the poor sap!"
The Joker's clownish thugs then threw the pies right at Courage's face, which the Joker was sitting comfortably in Eustace's chair watching it go on.
"Oh my!" cried Muriel who couldn't believe what was going on.
"Don't worry my dear, that pink dog will be fine" continued the Joker who was obviously lying to her.
As Courage was continued to be pelted by pies by the Joker's clownish thugs, the Joker signaled them to stop to which Courage was being taken to another area. There, the clownish thugs began to use a buzzer on poor Courage as they continued to shake hands with him giving him quite an electric shock.
"Isn't that a bit too much?" asked Muriel.
"Nonsense!" laughed the Joker as his thuggish clowns continued to do it.
It was finally time for the shark tank for Courage, as he was being carried on a crane controlled by one of the clownish thugs right over the shark tank that was filled with great whites.
"Really now, is this necessary?" asked Muriel.
"Listen dear, I want you to know that being a clown can not be an easy life for us" said the Joker, "but we're going to show you with this pink dog that it is fun!"
It was just then that the Dark Knight came crashing into the scene with his Batmobile along with Eustace who was in the shotgun seat of the Batmobile.
"Hey, that's my chair!" cried Eustace as he was trying to get out, "What the heck do you think you're doing in my chair?"
"Your fun is over Joker, it's time to tell the old lady why you really want her" said Batman.
"Yes, why is that man in that bat suit always following you, I am getting second thoughts that this isn't for some clown college course at all" added Muriel.
"Er, well, er" said the Joker to which he then grabbed Muriel, "alright Bats, don't make any sudden movements or she'll join the pink dog who'll be going into the shark tank!"
As Batman hesitated to go after the Joker, Courage knew it was all up to him, as he was swinging his way right out of harm's way, he managed to break free of being literally tied up. He landed right in front of the Joker.
"Leave her alone!" roared Courage as he began to growl.
"Stay back you stupid dog!" replied the Joker.
"That's what I always tell him, you stupid dog, you stupid dog" said Eustace, "and get out of my chair!"
"Never!" laughed the Joker, "I will not be defeated so easily!"
The Joker then snapped his finger to which his thuggish clowns began to charge at Courage, the Dark Knight and Eustace.
"Dumb dog, now look what you did!" cried Eustace as he was running for his life.
Eustace hopped right back into the Batmobile, while closing it leaving the Dark Knight and the pink dog to face those thuggish clowns alone.
"Ha, ha, whoa, this looks sweet" said Eustace as he was looking at the controls of the Batmobile.
"I know something bad is going to happen" said Courage as he trying to avoid capture of the thuggish clowns.
The pink dog headed for the shark tank, and swung on the rope that he was formerly tied to which the thuggish clowns whom were following him fell in the shark tank, but thankfully were not eaten by the sharks as they ran out of the shark tank screaming.
"Bah, you can never find good help these days" said the Joker who was observing it while still sitting in Eustace's chair.
"You, hippie clown boy, get out of my chair!" roared Eustace who was at the wheels of the Batmobile with its engines still on.
"This can't be good" said Batman as he knocked out a thuggish clown.
Eustace then placed the Batmobile in full throttle heading straight toward the Joker to which Muriel and the Joker both got out of the way just in the nick of time, too bad for Eustace's own favorite chair which he happened to destroy it in the process.
"Stupid hippie clown, look what you made me do to me chair!" roared Eustace.
"Now, now, we can get a bit carried away, help me Bats!" cried the Joker to which Batman had no other choice.
As Eustace turned the Batmobile targeting the Joker, Batman had no other choice but to save the Joker's life as he swooped down with using his grappling hook saving him. The two leaped right toward where the shark tank was located.
"Ha, I thought a hippie looked familiar under that costume, saying the behind of another hippie!" said Eustace.
"Hey, he sounds crazier than me" laughed the Joker referring to Eustace.
Eustace once again charged toward the shark tank.
"Move it!" cried Batman as he and the Joker got out of the way once again.
Poor Eustace then began to run off as he caused a flood of sharks to start chasing him, as for the Batmobile, it was quite totaled because of what Eustace did.
"So, no hard feelings about this, right Bats?" asked the Joker.
The scene then changes to the Joker behind bars, in a police van with his thuggish clowns also there as well.
"What about Eustace?" asked Muriel to Batman.
"I am sure he'd turn up somehow" replied Batman.
The scene then changes again to Eustace out in a lonely island surrounded by the sharks that he had freed, not far from Gotham.
"Stupid Gotham, I knew it was a bad idea!" cried Eustace, "And I still miss my chair!"
The scene ends from there with Eustace crying for his chair.
