When two geniuses meet, there is inevitably friction.

So on “Saturday Night Live,” when the world’s biggest (self-proclaimed) genius was confronted with Karen, who works for Apple, you knew that resentment would spew.

The rather mousy, nerdy woman from the Apple store sat calmly as Kanye fumed at her: “You do not deserve the title of ‘genius!'”

“Mark Zuckerberg is a genius. I am a genius,” he explained. Oddly, he didn’t mention Steve Jobs, to whom he’s compared himself on more than one occasion. (Well, the real Kanye has, as opposed to the one played here by Jay Pharoah.)

You might be wondering why Kanye was talking to Karen. Well, she was a guest on his and Kim Kardashian’s fine talk show, “Waking Up With Kimye.”
