When our ears first heard the musical stylings of Kanye West’s latest album Yeezus, one stanza of what some may refer to as lyrical genius struck us… and apparently it struck the French Baker’s Association as well.
In this open letter to M. West, Bernard Aydelotte tears into West’s now viral proclamation:
In a French ass restaurant
Hurry up with my damn croissants
I am a god
The association is not upset that M. West has declared himself as a God rather the organization’s indignation spans from Yeezy’s careless dismissal of the artisanal practice of croissant making. Sounds pretty French, eh?
One highlight of the letter amongst many (they congratulate West on the birth of his daughter ‘Nord’!) is this excerpt:
“For us mere mortals, we must wait the time required for the croissant to come to perfect fruition, but as a deity, you can surely alter the bread’s molecular structure faster than the speed of light, no? And with your omniscience, perhaps you have something to teach us about the perfect croissant. We await your guidance and insights.”
Who knew the French Bakers Association were comedians in addition to craftsmen?
