Elon Musk's Boring Company flamethrowers sell like hot cakes


Crowds of ecstatic customers are busy picking up flamethrowers in Los Angeles as Elon Musk distributes the first thousand flamethrowers today that were ordered through The Boring Company.

Elon Musk reportedly has a net worth over $20 billion.

While customs agencies have yet to release a further comment on the changes, the Boring Company's not-so-subtly titled Not a Flamethrower should be able to make its way into the hands of the remaining 19,000 with Musk planning to ship the devices on time - relatively.

The 20,000 TBC Flamethrowers sold out quickly for $500 each.

The clever idea behind these flamethrower pick up parties originally stemmed from the fact that shipping these devices proved to be quite hard given the fact that they contained propane.

The device comes with a 10-page manual which had additional tips: "Do not touch the not-a-flamethrower nozzle during or after use, as it could burn you".

Musk later posted a photo of a couple with a baby carriage and a flamethrower standing in front of a Boring Company photo shoot backdrop in a parking lot. "For simple & concise instructions, we drew upon wisdom in great Dr Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham". "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!"

Musk has previously joked that the flamethrowers will be ideal for an impeding zombie apocalypse. The funds made through these "hot" sales would be, in turn, used to fund other ventures of The Boring Company.

Musk also tweeted out the terms and conditions for his "Not-A-Flamethrower", which will ostensibly protect his company from liability for the inevitable flamethrower injuries and property damages, which come along with ... you know, handing out actual flamethrowers to people. The tech billionaire shared pictures of distributing his most popular (and most controversial to date) fundraising technique for the Boring Company today via his Twitter.
