Just when you thought it was safe to take your head from out of the oven, someone had to go and make the world all crazy again. And this time it was Karl Lagerfeld (let’s be real, it is ALWAYS Karl’s fault). It seems that dear Unkle Karl switched up an iconic toy in order to create his SpongeKarl SquarePants.

Because he couldn’t leave well enough alone, the Kaiser himself bastardized a beloved children’s icon and manipulated it to suit his own need. But the SpongeKarl SquarePants was all done for charity, so it proves that beneath his tanned, weather-beaten exterior Lagerfeld truly does have a heart.
