1. Literally no one wants Elon Musk to host Saturday Night Live

Did Lorne Michaels finally run out of celebrity hosts? Does he want to colonize Mars? Everyone is looking for an explanation behind the unexplainable: Elon "a bunch of people will probably die" Musk is hosting Saturday Night Live on May 8. The announcement sparked a meme, with Twitter users attempting to come up with a worse choice. Even SNL cast members are baffled. After Musk tweeted: "Let's find out just how live Saturday Night Live is," Bowen Yang responded "What the f--- does that even mean?" Meanwhile, Aidy Bryant shared a Bernie Sanders tweet about the moral obscenity of billionaires and Andrew Dismukes wrote on Instagram, "Only CEO I wanna do sketch with is Cher-E Oteri." Oh, and Miley Cyrus is the musical guest, to add to the chaos.
