Amazon announced on Friday it was buying the high-end grocery chain Whole Foods, and the internet is having a field day.

Jokes abound over the grocer’s high prices, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ net worth (about $US84 billion, making him the third-richest person on the planet), and the fact that Bezos on Thursday solicited Twitter for ideas on how to spend his money.

Amazon is paying $US42 a share in an all-cash deal, valuing Whole Foods at $US13.7 billion and making it the e-commerce giant’s largest acquisition to date.

Here are some of the best jokes on Twitter about the deal:
