It's just a joke. Batman's my favorite superhero, and I thought The Dark Knight was a great movie, but... There's a lot about The Dark Knight that is ripe for spoofing.

And really, as much as the Joker is one of my favorite villains, you must admit... In the DCU, he's a tad overrated. The whole "When supervillains want to scare each other, they tell Joker stories" thing. There's a lot nastier baddies in the DCU, some that would make even the Joker say "That's pretty sick."

Well, yeah, sure, of course it's just a joke. And yes, there IS a lot about 'Dark Knight', and the Batman mythos in general, for that matter, that's ripe for spoofing - I just think this one was a bit of a cheap shot. There's humor and then there's mockery, and this is mockery. I've never really gotten a taste for mockery.
And personally, while I agree that the Joker's reputation is vastly overinflated at times, I've never really had a problem with the 'when supervillains want to scare each other' business. I mean, it's not power we're talking about here, or even nastiness, it's SCARINESS, and the Joker is a damn scary person. Remember, the people who would be telling each other these stories are not, by and large, the heavy-hitters, they're the more 'street-level' variety - otherwise ordinary humans with an edge or an angle or a gimmick. It's not like Darkseid shudders at his name, but among ordinary people, the Joker is, in many ways, about as scary as you can get.
