Pinko philosopher Karl Marx, Star Trek stud Karl Urban, and fabulous fashion folk hero Karl Lagerfeld are about as different as any three men who ever lived, but if there is one thing the three Karls have in common it's their strong opinions on how the world should work!
Mr. Urban wants us all to know that he's a doctor, dammit, and not a torpedo technician!
Mr. Marx wants us to abandon capitalism and the bloated bourgeois oppressors it enables!
And Mr. Lagerfeld? Well, he wants us to know that selfies are stupid. Just plain STUPID.
While waxing poetical about Cara Delevingne recently, the great German designer took a moment to poke fun at selfies!!!
"They are this horrible thing where you are distorted. The chin is too big, the head is too small. No, this is electronic masturbation."
Ha! He's not even wrong about that! While there's nothing inherently wrong with electronic masturbation — uh, hello, 86% of all porn is digital — we get his point! Selfies are horribly self-indulgent and, worse, they are aesthetically unkind!
We aren't sure if he was poking fun at the bisexual beauty's penchant for taking pics of her own freakishly perfect face or just rambling about selfies in general, but we appreciate his words of wisdom!
Also, he doesn't like tattoos! So don't get those, either!
From his mouth to our ears! So says Karl #3, so say we all!
