Don't you know? Bane's break up with Ras was a viral sensation.
As for the topic, I'm sure the Joker wasn't expecting Batman to one up him and cover up Dent's crimes. He wasn't expecting the citizens of Gotham to one up him either by not blowing up the other ferry either. You see, the Joker, despite his best efforts, is in fact not a future seer.
Alan Moore on comics:
They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
