Yes, and they're all characteristics of Barbara's own traumatic event.

I guess not. I was trying to find some kind of logic to the scene. I guess, then, it was meant as a chauvinistic attack on Batgirl. Terrorize her first and then force her to cook.
How do the editors allow this crap to get into print?
The same reason somehow this gets put within it's pages.

Imagine being the artist, and you get whatever passes for a script or outline for that issue. It's the big, dramatic first contact between Joker and Batgirl since she regained the use of her legs. And you're drawing Batgirl making a sandwich.
The event is made even more superfluous now. What was the point of the event? Nothing happened save everyone in their own respective books got owned by the Joker. The great big moment this book was building too a rematch with the man who paralyzed her.. floundered horribly.
