Sorry this was so long in coming. Here's chapter two. Oh, and if you guys have any more ideas, feel free to PM me, I just might use them. ;)

"What's the matter? Cat got your tongue?" The Joker laughed at his own joke.

Ben quickly recovered from his state of shock and elbowed Carl who stood beside him, mouth hanging open.

"So, what's the plan, boss?" Ben inquired.

"You guys are gonna love this one," The Joker responded with a wink.

At that moment, however, another eerie cackle rang out into the night.

The three men turned and watched as the Joker once again marched out of the shadows.

Carl stared open mouthed before rubbing his eyes to make sure he wasn't hallucinating.

"Hello boys," the second Joker started, only to be stopped by the sight of the fourth member of their group: the aforementioned Joker.

He burst into hysterical laughter.

"Oh, I get it!" He squealed. "Good one boys! Guess the joke is on me!"

The two thugs were staring in openmouthed shock, while the other Joker assumed a look of distain.

"And you areā€¦?" He asked frowning.

"I could ask you the same question," the second Joker responded irritably.

"I'm the Joker of course!" the first Joker shouted annoyed.

"How could you possibly be the Joker, when that's me?"The second Joker replied, exasperated.

"I'm flattered that you believe yourself to be me, but make no mistake, my boy, there is only ONE Joker and that's me. The first Joker said with a sardonic smile.

The second Joker was beginning to become angry. He took a menacing step forward toward the other Joker and seized him by the collar.

"You got another thing coming if you think you're the real Joker!" He shouted, his faced inches from Joker number one.

The first Joker narrowed his eyes before shoving him away and straightening his tie.

"No need to get snappy," he stated haughtily. "It's not my fault you think you're the real Joker."

"I AM the Joker!" He roared. "The ONE and ONLY! The Clown prince of Crime, archenemy of the Batman!"

Now it was the first Joker's turn to get mad.

"This town isn't big enough for two Jokers," he stated darkly.

Carl and Ben had finally recovered from their shock, but before either them, or the other Joker could respond, a third Joker stepped out of the shadows, an evil smile coloring his features.

The two thugs were now terrified at the sight of a third Joker, both having believed the first Joker to be the real thing.

As this third Grinning Ghoul sauntered purposefully toward the other two, Carl shuddered at the thought of what could happen next.

Another cliffhanger I know. ;) I wasn't entirely satisfied with this chapter, sorry if it isn't up to par. Stupid writer's block. You know when you have a story all written in your head, but you can't seem to get it out on paper? That's me.

Anyway, feel free to review. Suggestions, comments, jokes, and new vocabulary words help me improve. :D
