SNL getting hosted by Elon MUSK in 2 weeks. NOTE to him and other whack billionaires:

The Romans had their share of humongous egos, but at least they took a stab, so to speak, at humility by having somebody saying, "Remember, you are human/mortal" next to the maniac having a glory day.

We've just gotten past one supposed billionaire thinking he deserved anything he wanted, yes even pocketing "honors" and knickknacks like hosting SNL. Well, MUSK, Mark CUBAN, et al., your vast material success and even the accomplishments that got it for you are their own thing, NOT transferrable to other endeavors or marks of honor and glory - or *SERVICE*.

If you're not naturally lovable, gracious, or humane your accomplishments and material success can't buy or appropriate them for you - not even stupendous charitable donations.

You can afford to hire somebody to do nothing else except to stand next to you and whisper in your ear, "Remember, you are human/mortal," until you get fed up and have them executed.

There was this dude in line to pay for a set of golf clubs and he was playing to the gallery about making sure everybody knew it and how he had cash to burn, and said to the minimum wage cashier, "The difference between a boy and a man is the price of their toys." She and everybody ignored him.

A Roman emperor played at being in the theater, another at being a gladiator, and we had one of your ilk try to own our government. It's been done, MUSK. Just play your games and play with your toys and leave the rest of us alone.

Elon Musk will host SNL in May. Yes, THAT Elon Musk

.... Miley Cyrus will be joining Musk as musical guest on May 8. ....

That said, the show has selected business moguls before, including former New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and, of course, former President Donald Trump (before he was president.) ....

As for Musk, the businessman will be able to show off his comedic chops. How exactly that plays remains to be seen, but this certainly is one of the buzzier choices SNL has made lately. It will likely get people to tune in who may not normally watch the show. ....

Musk is no stranger to being in front of the camera. He's popped up in Marvel's "Iron Man 2," in a 2015 episode of "The Simpsons" and in several episode of "South Park."

ON EDIT: Actually, am saving your perfect post for my future use in the same, all too frequent circumstances:
