Is The Joker, one of Batman's fiercest enemies, a Dutch citizen?
A 35-year-old man from the western Dutch town of Hellevoetsluis convinced local authorities to issue him an identity card with a picture that shows him as The Joker, Dutch news agency ANP reported on Thursday.
The man also managed to apply for a driver's licence picturing him with the cartoon character's trademark white skin and dark hat.
ANP said the man was working in the security sector and had wanted to show that current rules for identity papers were insufficient.
The Joker, played by Jack Nicholson in the movie version of Batman, is probably the best known enemy of the fictional superhero.
