8So Karl Lagerfeld Drew This Weird Picture of Obama

A photo of Karl Lagerfeld

Sorry, but this is one of the times where I tell you the whole story in the headline. There’s no corresponding interview, there’s just no other information here besides the fact that Karl Lagerfeld drew this weird picture of Obama and it was published in a German newspaper.

Here it is:

Yes, that’s President Obama in a chef outfit. And yes, he’s carrying a cake shaped like the White House. I can’t tell you why. I can’t give you any further explanation. I can only tell you that this is real, and that it happened, and that it was published. That’s all I know.

Oh, and that caption says “the greatest chef in the world, 10 by 5 stars.” There, that’s all I can tell you. But, you see, I had to tell you. Because I can’t keep this stuff to myself.

So do you love it or what?

    Not sure if this is weirder than that portrait Tony Bennett did of Lady Gaga or not

    Does it mean let the Americans eat cake or something?

    It’s actually not as weird as it appears; it’s a play on words. In German ‘chef’ means ‘boss’ so this is a comment on Obama being the biggest ‘boss’, or the most influential world leader, there is. But literally translated it would mean he’s a chef.

    also the stars on the flag are referenced with michelin stars (which there are a max 3.)
