Elon Musk, billionaire CEO, and 47-year-old grown man, put out a call for “dank memes.”
Musk, who has been expressing his love for anime and weed, appears to be in some sort of Benjamin Button situation, maturing in reverse. With the confidence of a ninth grader who just discovered Reddit, Musk tweeted on Tuesday: “Fresh puro from my meme dealer.”
The deep fried .jpeg he posted isn’t even dank. In the scenario, a man fends off a bear, who says, “Listen to me Floyd, you’re tripping balls right now… for the love of god, put down the gun and we can talk this through.”
This … this is a low quality meme. This isn’t even funny or surreal enough for Instagram repost accounts, or Twitter reposts. This doesn’t even count as a low-tier shitpost.
It’s the kind of thing you’d find on the new page of r/funny, shunned by the internet masses. Elon Musk’s taste in memes parallel those of Facebook moms who giggle over minions holding glasses of red wine, or dads who email their grown children screenshots of memes they stumbled across on the sports forums they dwell in.
Musk followed up with a juvenile call for memes.
It turns out his followers’ tastes in memes suck, too.
But then it turned on Musk when people began responding with memes roasting him.
Let’s just hope that Musk never discovers 4chan.
