Sorry Elon, your AI chatbot is the opposite of "based"

Well, it's finally happened. Elon Musk has launched his own AI, and it's just as sarcastic and meme-riddled as you'd expect. The new AI, oddly christened 'Grok', is the latest advancement to come out of Musk's company xAI, challenging more popular models such as Chat GPT. He prides the system on its "based" sarcasm, but in my opinion, the tryhard edgy humour is currently giving quite the opposite. 

Grok is currently in its early beta phase, but Musk has promised that his latest creation will be released to X Premium+ subscribers as soon as it passes the mark – just what we need, another AI chatbot.
