What do you usually do when you’re bored at the office on a Friday afternoon? Well, if you’re a wealthy businessman named Elon Musk, you just buy a website for memes.
On Friday afternoon, the owner of Tesla and Space X announced on his Twitter feed that he had just bought his own meme website. “Just bought stankmemes.com oh yeah,” Musk tweeted.
Just bought https://t.co/LJJCD7BAgX oh yeah

According to Mashable, a lookup on whois.icann.org reveals the site domain was actually created on the same day Musk announced he had “bought” the site.
In October 2018, Musk asked his followers on Twitter to send him “ur dankest memes,” which set off a wave of mockery on Twitter.
Send me ur dankest memes!!
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 25, 2018
In the last few days, rumor had it that Musk may host a memes review.
The website is now populated with stank memes of all sorts—and Musk will likely make the best use of his new site on his Twitter feed.
