In 2019’s Joker, it is established that the lead character, Arthur Fleck, has a condition. The condition causes him to burst into a bout of uncontrollable laughter – often at inappropriate moments.
As it is difficult to explain to people what the condition is, Arthur carries a card which contains a few details. The laminated card – roughly the size of a library card – contains information on the front and back.
But what is written on Arthur’s laughter condition card?
The front of Arthur’s card is kept very simple and reads as follows:
Forgive my Laughter:
I have a Condition.
MORE ON BACK
The back of the card provides further details and reads:
It’s a medical condition causing sudden frequent and uncontrollable laughter that doesn’t match how you feel.
It can happen in people with a brain injury or certain neurological conditions.
KINDLY RETURN THIS CARD
Arthur presents this card to anyone who appears to be uncomfortable with his laughter. Should you wish to know more about Arthur Fleck’s condition, please take a look at my post: Is Arthur Fleck’s laughing condition real?
