    We’ve rounded up the duo’s most absurd, did-he-really-just-say-that soundbites for a game of Guess That Quote. Good luck, you’re gonna need it.

    On Work Ethic

    "When I do something, I do it 100 percent. I’m a professional killer."

    Karl Lagerfeld

    At 80, Lagerfeld is still impressively productive, jetting around the world for various projects and maintaining a demanding work schedule. We can only hope we’re as spry at his age (minus the still working part).

    On Talent

    "I am Warhol. I am the No. 1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh."

    Kanye West

    Hm. Wonder what the Bard of Avon would think of Yeezy lyrics like, "I want to f**k you hard on the sink/ After that give you something to drink".

    On Exercise

    "I jog in Lanvin."

    Kanye West

    According to the Slate reporter interviewing him, Kanye blurted this factoid totally out of the blue. But, hey, for a non sequitur, it’s pretty fabulous.

    On Social Status

    "I'm a working-class person, working with class."

    Karl Lagerfeld

    There is, of course, nothing “working-class” about Lagerfeld, who hails from a wealthy German family and whose tastes have always run to the aristocratic. (In the 1970’s, he would often turn up at parties dressed like an 18th century French feudal lord.)

    On Technology

    "The iPod is genius. I have 300."

    Karl Lagerfeld

    Lagerfeld’s obsessive collecting tendency extends to his music library, which he constantly updates. He’s known to keep abreast of the latest bands, both mainstream and Indie, and prefers to work with music playing.

    On Friendship

    "I’m surrounded by young and beautiful people. I hate looking at ugliness."

    Karl Lagerfeld

    We're not sure whether Lagerfeld is pulling our leg here, but his Teutonic bluntness makes us chuckle.

    On Interior Design

    "I specifically ordered Persian rugs with cherub imagery! What do I have to do to get a simple Persian rug with cherub imagery?"

    Kanye West

    We sympathize with West on this one. Finding a Persian rug with cherub imagery is, like, really hard. And you wouldn’t think it would be, right?

    On Personal Finance

    "Do I know how much money is in my bank account? That’s a question for people with little money."

  • 17 of 21

    Karl Lagerfeld

    Fair enough. We wouldn’t expect the man behind three major fashion labels would ever hurt for cash.

    On Semantics

    "I'm a creative genius and there's no other way to word it."

  • 19 of 21

    Kanye West

    Really? Because we can think of a few other ways to word it. For instance, delusional and God complex spring to mind.

    On Envy

    "Come on now! How could you be me and want to be someone else?"

  • 21 of 21

    Kanye West

    We’re going to start saying this to ourselves in the mirror every morning. It’s like a Stuart Smalley affirmation with swagger.
