On Thursday, Kanye West debuted the greatest album of all time, The Life of Pablo, at his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at Madison Square Garden.

Let me clear that up for you right now: It already happened, and it’s called the Pablo Dot Life.

This is all very good, but part of the genius of Kanye is that mocking Kanye only makes him stronger. Remember that “I love you like Kanye loves Kanye” meme? It’s not even a joke anymore; it’s now a line on his new album.
