Water World: Elon Musk Says Earth Should Be Renamed, Gets Trolled on Twitter by Earthlings
Elon Musk may have declared his love for dank memes, but we're not sure how much he'll like the memes his thought of the day elicited.

So when a Twitter account called World and Science posted a side-by-side size comparison of Earth and Mars, Musk, whose most ambitious project is the colonization of the red planet, thought it's time to drop some some truth bombs.

Musk decided this post gave him the perfect opening to express something he had been musing on, namely, the renaming of Earth.

Even though he's technically correct, his reasoning is more stoner logic than critical thinking, something the Twitterverse was quick to point out, especially given the trouble Musk found himself in after smoking weed on camera while appearing on Joe Rogan's radio talk show.

Others decided to apply their own stoner logic to other inter-planetary concerns.

Earth is 99% rock with a thin smear of water on the surface. Shouldn’t it be called “Air”, since 100% of the surface is covered by atmosphere?— Ex-PFC Wintergreen (@XPFCWintergreen) November 26, 2018
Oh, Elon. Whatever would we do without you?
