New York Magazine Quiz on Crazy Quotes: 'Sheen, Beck or Qaddafi?'

New York magazine has deemed February "a peerless month in the history of unhinged rants" and put together a quiz to demonstrate how hard it can be to distinguish among the ramblings of Charlie Sheen, Glenn Beck and Muammar Qaddafi. It's pretty hilarious.

Quotes that readers are challenged to assign to the actor, talk show host or fallen dictator include:

"I ask you to prepare because your world is about to change overnight."

"I have no authority stemming from laws or decisions or anything else, I just have moral authority. I only have moral authority."


"You want to call me crazy? Go to hell. Call me crazy all you want!"

"I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans … to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong."


We won't give away the answers, in case you want to take the quiz. But we do think it was missing someone: Kanye! Even before his controversial abortion tweets, he gave Beck, Qaddafi and Sheen a run for their money in the egotistical "unhinged rant" category with these winners and others:

"I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade, I will be the loudest voice."

"Come on, now! How could you be me and want to be someone else?"

"Due to what has happened so severely when the red shoes hit the runway, I was forced to change my name to Martin Louis the King Jr. Address me as such."
