Caustic Thread Dunks On Photo Of Richard Branson’s Kitchen

Money may not be able to buy you happiness, but it can get you a lot of flashy consumer goods. That's basically the same thing, right? The uber-rich can afford pretty much anything they desire, so when it gets revealed that don't always live in luxury, it can be a little disappointing. Sure, it may be down to personal choice, but if you want to make that kind of money in the first place it makes sense that you want the lifestyle to match.

The latest instance of this issue sparking debate has come from Richard Branson, who recently shared a photo of himself and Elon Musk in his kitchen before the flight of his Unity 22 spacecraft. The image was picked up by @preachyspice on Twitter, who was more focused on the background details than the trip he was about to make. According to her, it was his kitchen that needed all the attention, as she trashed his "googly eyed finishings". Numerous people agreed with her, although some also argued that his lack of concern for interior design was simply part of the formula for becoming financially successful.

Musk himself chipped in to say that Branson was only renting the property, and therefore the design choices were not his personal responsibility. Even then, you might think that he would choose a place with a little more panache. Then we could focus on the real problem: having to see Elon Musk's feet.

Elon Musk Tweeted Something Clueless & People Are Predictably Angry About It

Clueless billionaires have been in the news a lot lately. While people are always talking about how they manage to avoid paying taxes, lately Jeff Bezos and Virgin's Richard Branson are receiving attention for their desire to explore space. Branson managed to beat Bezos to that goal just this Sunday, but both of these ridiculously rich guys are being accused of being both wasteful and selfish. One of the most popular arguments is that this money could have gone a long way to help people who are suffering on Earth. 

In response to all the space travel criticism, Elon Musk decided to tweet a disjointed, nearly poem-like message. 

The tweet was not well-received. People quickly jumped to drag Musk for the tweet, accusing him of being clueless and tone deaf. And, of course, accusing him of being a bad poet. Even Marianne Williamson chimed in, basically to tell Musk that his priorities were wrong. While we're not ones to join a hate parade, it definitely fun to watch Elon Musk sabotage himself on Twitter. And we're pretty damn sure this won't be the last time that happens.

Twitter Is Roasting Grimes After Equivocal 'Proposition for the Communists'

Grimes is trending yet again and this time it involves artificial intelligence, communism and TikTok. Still with us? Great. Let's cut to the chase:
 


Many bewildered TikTok followers of the ever-polarizing pop star expressed their skepticism in the comments, wondering how Grimes—the partner of one of the wealthiest capitalists in the world—could endorse communism. Grimes waved off her dubious ramblings, claiming the video was meant to be a joke, but that didn't stop the TikTok clip from making it's way over to Twitter, where thousands of people are taking the opportunity to make fun of the self-proclaimed advocate of 'AI dictatorship.' 

Whether Grimes was joking or not seems to be beside the point for many participating in the roast fest. For Twitter, laughing at Grimes is way more fun than laughing with Grimes. We've collected some of the spiciest reactions to the pop queen's perplexing ramblings for anyone who's into inane celebrity spectacle.

As Crypto Bloodbath Traumatizes HODLers, Twitter Copes Through Memes

Good morning HODLers. If you haven't checked your crypto trading app yet, maybe you should try throwing your phone out the window first. On the other hand, the market is more volatile than the sun. By the time I finish writing this, DOGE could totally be chillin' on the moon. Not likely, though. 

As the 'buy the dip' battle cries ring across the internet, many are worried that the recent news of China's intensified crypto crackdown might cause the dips to keep dipping. Things looked pretty grim early this morning until the Dogefather himself stepped in and tweeted vague 'diamond hands'  emojis, which triggered an immediate BTC spike. We've lost track of how many times Elon Musk has put HODLers through the emotional wringer this year. 

Whether you're holding on for dear life, buying for the first time at these 'discounted' prices, or just in it for the entertainment, there's one thing that always brings the people together—memes. Twitter is using memes as a coping mechanism to get through the bloodbath, and we're here for it.

The Wario-baiting, Crypto-tanking Reactions To Elon Musk Hosting Saturday Night Live

If there is one thing Elon Musk wants everyone to know about him, it is that he's funny. When Saturday Night Live announced that he would host this weekend, it seemed like a logical step for the internet's most famous wannabe memelord.

However, not everybody saw it that way. The announcement was met with significant backlash, though many of his fans defended the Tesla CEO. Unfortunately, his appearance on the show only helped to encourage the critics who had been vocal in the upcoming weeks.

From the cringey swipes at Gen Z to his incorrect claim that he was the first person with Asperger's to host, viewers panned the show as soon as it aired. Even his Dogecoin shoutout didn't go as planned, with shares plummeting as soon as he joked about gifting some to his mom for Mother's Day. The cherry on top was a sketch involving a trial for the murder of Super Mario, with Musk playing Wario as the prime suspect.

The zany costuming and questionable acting skills set off a torrent of memes about the performance — and predictably, most of them weren't flattering.

Bitcoin Memes For Crazed Crypto Hodlers

It appears that memes are taking over the economy. If you've been keeping up with the GameStop saga and the rise of DOGE, by now you're probably well aware that bitcoin reached its all-time high of $48k early this morning. While bitcoin has been powering through its ascent for over a decade now and is certainly no meme stock, we can't deny that this forceful crypto rally may at least be loosely connected to the recent Reddit short squeeze meme schemes. Elon Musk has not-so-subtly been hyping both dogecoin and bitcoin for months—mysteriously putting 'bitcoin' into his Twitter bio, retweeting ridiculous pro-dogecoin memes, claiming that dogecoin is 'the people's crypto'—even Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Doge) got in on the hype. But it all came to a head when Tesla announced its purchase of $1.5 billion worth of bitcoin on Monday. It didn't take long for the price of bitcoin to skyrocket to the moon. 

But how much further can bitcoin go? As more and more institutions adopt bitcoin as a legitimate form of currency, the plebs are wanting in, but many are wondering if they're too late. In retrospect, one could say there was never a bad time to buy bitcoin. Remember when one coin cost $9k a year ago? To be honest, I personally thought I was too late then. Now look at me. But obviously hindsight is clear as day, and the future of bitcoin is still foggy for those of us who need blockchain technology to be fully demystified before we can 'YOLO' our life-savings into cryptocurrency. If there's one thing we do know for sure, it's that the inherently viral nature of memes has shown to be a useful tool in pumping crypto. Just as r/WallStreetBets rallied to pump the GME short squeeze, subreddits like r/SatoshiStreetBets have been hyping altcoins like DOGE in order to raise the price floor. Some brush off dogecoin as a bubble or pyramid scheme that only functions as a pump and dump rather than a viable currency, but skeptics said the same thing about bitcoin in 2009, so who knows?

We can't say what the future holds for bitcoin, but we can offer what we know best—memes. We've got some amusing bitcoin memes and tweets both old and fresh for anyone who's either curious about crpyto for the first time or obsessive about checking those candlesticks every two minutes.

Elon Musk's SNL Backlash Inspires Spicy Twitter Memes

Elon Musk can't seem to stay out of the spotlight. SNL announced on Saturday that the South African billionaire would be hosting the show on May 8th with musical guest Miley Cyrus. The news came in SNL's classic index card format - featuring the date, the name of the host, and the name of the musical guest. 


It's true that weird nerds and Dogecoin enthusiasts may be celebrating the announcement, but there has actually been an impressive amount of backlash. While Dean Obeidallah penned an impressive op-ed decrying the choice, the most fervent and goofy protests have been in the form of memes.

We're pretty sure that most of you have heard about Dogecoin. The altcoin has soared this week, following an earlier rally around when the r/wallstreetbets and GameStop drama was at its peak. Now our timelines are filled with investors posting constantly about the coin making it to $1...or, as they love to say, to the moon. But how did this meme become the 5th most popular cryptocurrency? Don Caldwell of Know Your Meme is here to explain the whole phenomenon.

20 Tweets On NFTs & The Unstoppable Crypto Art Craze

What the hell is an NFT anyway? Non-Fungible Tokens are basically digital assets or collectors items, sort of like a rare Pokémon card that has gained value over time due to its scarcity, except NFTs only exist digitally on 'proof of work' blockchains, like Ethereum. When one buys an NFT, they aren't buying the image itself, but rather the token that points to the image or video and says 'this is the only one that exists.' Now people can even buy individual tweets as NFTs, but the way that works is a little more complicated, and frankly, we don't really get it. All we know is, Jack Dorsey is selling his first tweet ever for like, millions of dollars and 'Bad Luck Brian' sold an NFT of his school photo for 20 ETH (about $36,000 at the time). NFTs aren't only being used to sell digital art, the memes have unsurprisingly taken over and you can find everything from the 'Deal With It' sunglasses to 'Nyan Cat' selling for lots of money. All of this absurdity might seem like a harmless game to some—buying the metadata of original troll face for thousands of dollars in crypto? Sure, okay. But sadly minting NFTs on proof-of-work blockchain has disturbing environmental consequences. The average NFT that gets minted to the ETH network has the same carbon footprint as one European resident's electricity consumption for 1.5 months. So until we can figure out a more efficient way to sell digital assets, some suggest that participants in this madness will have to offset the environmental cost by doing things like reinvesting their gains into renewable energy.

We've collected some tweets that paint a picture of the current NFT frenzy—some from high-profile public figures who are participating and some reactions from people who are watching from the sidelines.

Elon Musk has really out-memed himself with his latest stunt. In a recent SEC filing, the CEO and CFO of Tesla have dubbed themselves Technoking of Tesla and Master of Coin, respectively.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter has some takes after waking up to the news of Musk's latest trolly moves, and we've collected some of the most amusing latest reactions.

Fake Rumor Of Elon Musk's Death Sparks Spicy Twitter Memes

Okay first of all, let's get something out of the way: no, Elon Musk is not dead. We're not quite sure who is responsible for the initial spread of the rumor that Elon Musk died yesterday from a lithium battery explosion, but a handful of fake screenshots of news articles were circulated and caused chaos and confusion on the internet. It didn't take long for things to get set straight, but the truth didn't stop the memes. In fact, the debunking of the rumor seemed to spark even more memes, perhaps because the joke isn't so morbid if Elon is actually alive. At the end of the day, Elon Musk even tweeted an eye-roll emoji to help dispel the Twitter frenzy. We've collected some of the funniest memes that came out of today's chaotic internet prank.

Sure, Twitter has its drawback. Painfully bad takes, constant political debates, and weird K-Pop in-jokes seem to inundate our feeds.

Elon Musk Earns 'Space Karen' Title After Complaining About Covid-19 Tests

If you thought the internet was done talking about Karens or Elon Musk, you were dead wrong. And Twitter offered us an unholy amalgam of the two this weekend. The SpaceX founder tweeted on Friday that "something extremely bogus is going on," regarding Covid-19 tests. 

The tweet, unsurprisingly, was not well received. While many people resolved to call Elon Musk a "pos" and decry his penchant for fueling conspiracy theories, doctors and academics instead called him out in the best way they know how: with facts and statistics. While we admire every own, it was Dr. Emma Bell of Toronto, Ontario that delivered the harshest blow. In their takedown tweet, they refer to Elon Musk as "Space Karen." The nickname was received far better than Musk's cringey tweet. We've put together some of the best reactions to Musk's tweet and subsequent Karen-dom, but we're willing to bet you'll find more goodies on Twitter.
