Bored Elon Musk is one of our favorite parody Twitter accounts—it's a feed populated with the sorts of #showerthoughts Elon might have as he's waiting for an elevator, stepping off his private jet, or trying to fall asleep at night. The real Musk has his hands in so many different projects, it only makes sense that in his spare time, he'd dream up a drone that gets other drones out of trees or a an HD, YouTube-playing microwave.

With the release of Ashlee Vance's new biography about Musk, we get some insight into some of his peculiar relationships with tech giants like Google's Larry Page, who Elon likes, and Amazon's Jeff Bezos, who Elon can't stand. So, we thought it'd be fun to ask Bored Elon (the account remains pseudonymous) to imagine some text conversations between the real Elon and some of his famous friends. - Jason Koebler
