“Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy. I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties. On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don’t like the sister’s face. She should only show her back.”
Oh man, no one can make me laugh like good ol’ Karl here. I’ll admit, the first time I really started looking into his life was when he called Adele “a little too fat,” and I didn’t care for him at all. I thought he was rude and self-important and just generally awful. But then I remembered that he’s a gazillion years old. He’s a crotchety old man without any kind of filter, and he’s definitely at that point where the things he says are so absurd that he’s gone from being offensive to being hilarious.
Also, he reminds me of my uncle who only leaves his house to go to Walmart, except on Thanksgiving and Christmas when he comes over to my grandma’s house and sits in the corner talking about how he’s not going to carve the damn turkey this year. He also has a touch of my other grandma, who has been crazy for years and used to take me out for ice cream and then call me “Thunder Thighs.” When I was 10. Maybe Karl could be a distant relative!
But about Karl’s actual quote: I’m sorry, I can’t help but laugh. “Her sister struggles.” This man is so priceless.
