He may be one of the richest men on the planet, but Elon Musk has kept the child inside him alive. Specifically, the childlike part of him that wants to play with a flamethrower. Musk's company, The Boring Company, is selling flamethrowers online for $500, which is a small price to pay for the time of your life!
Musk is beyond excited about his new product.
When the zombie apocalypse happens, you’ll be glad you bought a flamethrower. Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 28, 2018
He has to say this for legal reasons:
Obviously, a flamethrower is a super terrible idea. Definitely don’t buy one.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 28, 2018
SOMEONE had to address the elephant in the room.
The rumor that I’m secretly creating a zombie apocalypse to generate demand for flamethrowers is completely false— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 28, 2018
You’d need millions of zombies for a so-called “apocalypse” anyway. Where would I even get a factory big enough to make so many!?— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 28, 2018
But how can this be legal?
ATF says any flamethrower with a flame shorter than 10 ft is A-ok. Our design is max fun for least danger. I’d be way more scared of a steak knife.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 28, 2018
Musk knows business, and he knows flamethrowers. This was a slam-dunk waiting to happen.
Musk is cementing his status as an American hero!
I think Elon Musk could sell ANYTHING and make people want it. I mean im not judging; I want a flamethrower now too.— Milink (@Mil1nk) January 28, 2018
If a flamethrower is what you need in your life right now, head over to The Boring Company's website and pre-order one for yourself!
Can you please demonstrate the effectiveness of the flamethrower for finishing creme brûlée? This is an essential function that I need.— Jordan Golson (@jlgolson) January 28, 2018
