Congrats to anyone who had “Elon Musk buys Twitter” on their 2022 bingo card.
Following the news that the world’s richest man has splashed a casual $44 odd billion on his favorite social network, along with the outrage and questions over what comes next, there have also been the inevitable jokes.
And, perhaps unsurprisingly, some of the late night hosts were making the same ones.
“Imagine having so much money you think it’s a good idea to buy hell,” said Corden, meanwhile, on The Late Late Show. “Musk’s bid was approved today by Twitter’s board of directors, which I assume consists of crying Michael Jordan, keyboard cat and the distracted boyfriend guy.
“This makes sense, I guess: Musk does the impossible. That’s what he does. He sees something impossible and he makes it happen: Building the most sought after electric car; blasting off into outer-space; And now, somehow making Twitter even worse.”
Still, as Corden adds at the end of his bit, there is always the option to delete your account and never look back (you can even download an archive of your tweets first, if you don’t want to lose those many quips and takes you built up along the way).
