Elon with the jokes…

Of course, the news story of the week is that he recently purchased Twitter for a cool $44 billion, which has sent some into a spiral of doom, and has encouraged others to reactive their accounts and get back on the app.

Needless to say, there’s a lot of opinions on the matter, and I’m sure there’s no question that big changes are likely to come on the social media platform with a new boss in the building.

Depending on how you add it up, Elon is often cited as the the richest man on the planet, leading many people to think of even more ideas for unique business ventures and investments aside from Tesla, SpaceX and now, Twitter for the mogul.

But Elon himself recently tweeted out his own idea for purchasing Coke:

“Next I’m buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in.”

Coke famously added the drug to their soda back when they first started doing business (hence the name), as cocaine was legal and a common ingredient in medicines at the time. Coke was started by Atlanta pharmacist John Pemberton, who claimed it cured headaches, upset stomach, and fatigue.

Not sure it did exactly that, but it’s not hard to see why the iconic soda became so popular so quickly.

Can’t say I had this one on the bingo card for 2022, though… the tweet currently has 3.2 million likes and counting:

And there’s already some new ideas for packaging floating around on the internet…

But listen, y’all… he’s just a modest billionaire, not a miracle worker (although if he could somehow get those ice cream machines up and running on a consistent basis, it truly would be nothing short of a miracle):

But as a music fan, I’m in favor of this one:

At the end of the day, I’m really still holding out for Elon and Kimbal to make an appearance at the CMA’s:
