We've learned so much about musician/designer/nexus Kanye West this week. For instance, did you know that according to West himself, he and DONDA, his creative agency, are just like the NBA, Will Ferrell's character in Semi-Pro, Walmart, Malcolm X, Facebook, The Walt Disney Company, Marina Abramović, the NFL, Jesus Christ, Ralph Lauren, Lenny Kravitz, the iPhone, Michael Jackson, Andy Warhol, William Shakespeare, Nike, Google, the House of Medici, Will Smith's character in The Pursuit of Happyness, God, Nelson Mandela, 2Pac, Steve Jobs, and many other animate and inanimate things?

Add in the things he's compared himself to in songs and previous interviews, and, well, it's a whole lot of things. But, it all begs the question: What hasn't West compared himself to? Looking for answers, we cross-examined Wikipedia with all his radio, television, and print interviews as well as all his lyrics and identified the 26* things he's missed in his quest to compare himself to all the things. Hopefully, he'll get to these soon. Please tell us in the comments if we've missed or incorrectly listed anything.
