Elon Musk Has Hilarious Response Over McDonald's Purchase Suggestion

Elon Musk has a hilarious response as people discuss the idea of him buying McDonald's.

Look, it's pretty clear that Musk can buy a lot. He's the richest man in the world and, for better or worse, he's just bought Twitter.

Now, people are broaching the idea of him buying McDonald's, and while we love the idea of the SpaceX founder launching a Happy Meal into the atmosphere, he's not totally on board with the idea.

Musk shared a screenshot of a mock-up tweet from his account, which read: "Now I'm going to buy McDonald's and fix all of the ice cream machines."

Musk joked in the caption: "Listen, I can’t do miracles OK."

The account for McDonald's Germany even responded, saying: "My bad, but I thought you were the guy going to Mars."

Another said: "You bought twitter for 44 billion dollars, i download it for free. So who's the real winner?"

Others shared fake Musk tweets, pretending to be the tech mogul as they joked about more impulse purchases: "Now I'm going to buy Facebook and delete it haha."

While it would be great to have a reliable ice cream hook up at McDonald's, we're not sure how Musk's Tesla investors would feel about the purchase.

Just a day after Musk announced he bought Twitter, Tesla stock fell by more than 12 percent.

To put that in perspective that's around $125 billion, which understandably would have investors concerned about any other purchases Musk makes - McDonald's, Facebook, or otherwise.

The sharp fall in stock was attributed to concerns over Musk financing his Twitter bid of $44 billion.

The tech mogul is said to have secured a loan for $12.5 billion against his 17 percent stake in Tesla.

In addition, Musk is also said to have borrowed another $13 billion from Wall Street, but hasn't said how he'll make up the remaining bid amount, which has left investors concerned and some worrying that Musk will unload Tesla stock for the takeover.

Tesla even said in its recent annual filing: "If Elon Musk were forced to sell shares of our common stock that he has pledged to secure certain personal loan obligations, such sales could cause our stock price to decline." 

So, if Musk were to buy McDonald's, his Tesla investors probably won't be having a Happy Meal.
