A joker is the common name for the representation of a medieval court jester or harlequin. A joker typically wears a floppy, multi-pointed hat made of cloth fabric with jingle bells at the tips of the points. The joker wears colorful clothing, laughs incessantly, and often holds a mock scepter known as a marotte in his hand.
