Elon Musk Company Hands Out 'Fun' Flamethrowers In Scorched LA

In an unsurprising, yet unfortunate turn of events, Musk was blocked from shipping the Boring Company Flamethrower in February when customs agencies point blank refused to deliver a device with such a volatile name.

The company sold 20,000 of the machines, but the first 1,000 were distributed at an event at the Boring Company's headquarters in Los Angeles.

A flamethrower being offered for sale by Elon Musk and The Boring Company. Only 20,000 of them would be made, he said, and they quickly sold out. Don't worry if you can't make it; all Not-a-Flamethrowers will ship out this summer!

Billionaire Elon Musk says the device should be called "not a flamethrower" to stay on the regulatory safe side. "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!"

Musk tweeted that the instruction manual drew its inspiration from Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham". The announcement was huge for the fledgling company - even with the "Not a Flamethrower" flamethrower bringing in $10 million alone in sales.

Musk tweeted what he claimed was the terms and conditions for the machines, some of which were presented in the style of the United States children's author Dr. Seuss.

"In a flawless world, I don't see any reason why anybody needs something like this out of a legitimate commercial use". The most eager customers can forgo the bidding process and pay the eBay "buy it now price", which is as high as $20,000.

Musk initially floated the idea of selling flamethrowers to help fund his infrastructure tunneling company, which many took as a joke.

It's unclear how much a round-trip would cost, but the Boring Company said it will be "comparable to or lower than current public transportation fares".

The disclaimer also mandated that consumers check off several boxes under the prompt, "I understand The Boring Company isn't responsible for anything I do, no matter how genius or stupid".
