What's its black body temperature? 80 A.U. is super distant, but A1 stars are hella hot and bright. I can't find any sites that tell me that.

The Joker Grin isn't entirely fictional: there are several ways to produce a smile-like rictus in a murder victim, including strychnine and a certain poisonous flower.

It's really just a hideous grimace vaguely reminiscent of grinning. Also all the other horrific symptoms coinciding with it kind of render the grin rather minor in comparison.
But as The Joker was a genius chemist in some iterations, it makes sense that he could have developed a poison whose primary symptoms before death was risus sardonicus and paroxysms reminiscent of laughing.

Pretty sure it was modern internet and youth fads that won the elections for that last two presidents. Sadly, more to come. Politics is like tar and will stick to anything you expose to it during an election year.
