What if Kanye West is Retarded? | Cracked.com.
But now that I’m seeing this ridiculous book of what he perceives to be Confucius-esque witticisms, I’m not so sure. It’s not enough that he’s written a crappy book–he’s gone on record as saying that he’s a “proud non-reader” who doesn’t see the value in books. Now, I’m not an accomplished author or anything (until Holla Atta Bitch goes platinum or whatever it is that books do), but I think the first rule of book-selling is “Don’t tell your book-buying audience that reading books is stupid and worthless.” Which leads me to my concern: What if Kanye isn’t an eccentric genius and, worse, isn’t even trying to feign eccentricity? What if Kanye didn’t spout off a bunch of quirky, polarizing diatribes because he wanted to go down in history as a creative genius, but because he is, in fact, a complete fucking moron? The question we have to ask, then, is “What if Kanye West is retarded?” and everything Kanye’s ever said and done takes on an entirely different context when you view it through this new lens.
