You just never know what will come out of Karl Lagerfeld's mouth!

As the world-renowned fashion designer celebrates his 81st birthday Wednesday, fans are getting a taste of his outrageous quotes.

"It's KARL time!" the birthday boy proclaimed on his Twitter earlier in the day.

But before your mind begins to wander off in crazy places, we have the true meaning behind the tweet! He's simply promoting his new watch line. "New #KARLLAGERFELD #watches have arrived in stores," he added. 

The designer, who has recently worked with Kristen Stewart and Rita Ora, really is no stranger to speaking his mind.

When asked about his favorite runway model, Cara Delevingne, Lagerfeld delivered quite the response.

"She is not a standout beauty," he told The Guardian. "Was it Bacon who said, ‘There is not beauty without some strangeness in the proportions'?" Ummm, we think that's a compliment?

And we can't forget about his views on people who he thinks lack certain beauty attributes.

"I'm surrounded by young and beautiful people," he once said. "I hate looking at ugliness."

On that note, happy birthday, Karl. Hope you're surrounded with nice people—no matter what they look like—on your special day.
