Elon Musk is known for his pretty absurd, outlandish tweets.

One second he’s tweeting about a Chinese poem that’s actually about beans, and the next he’s saying that he’s willing to spend $6 billion to fight world hunger (with some pretty big conditions). And now he's challenging Vladimir Putin to a fight...

The Tesla CEO also revealed that he hits send on most of his unhinged tweets all while on the toilet. So, yeah; nothing is off-limits in terms of what he’ll be saying next.

While reflecting on his many social media posts, we couldn’t help but think of another wise man we’ve watched over the years, Homer Simpson.
