Who's the better Joker?

Two Jokers. Two different generations of madness and insanity.

I have watched Tim Burton's Batman and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight and I enjoyed both movies to boot. I love both Jokers so comparing them is tough. Its like comparing apples to oranges. Both actors have given their character their own spin to it: Jack did  the usual Joker that we see in comics with a more lighter tone, more comical and clown-like (his laugh is unmistakable), but still dangerous and insane. Heath took the character in a different direction, giving it a more grungy edge, darker, and a more sinister  They both made the character their own by giving it their best, which makes them more harder to compare.Well, what do you expect from Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger anyway?

Personally, I cannot say who's the best because I like them both. But what do you guys think? Who portrayed our resident mad clown better for you? Who is your favorite Joker of all time? Feel free to drop your comments.
