Elon Musk's Boring Company Flamethrower Available for Pre-Order

This certainly would come in handy at a Shackbattle.


Elon Musk gets bored sometimes. He spends most of his week managing Tesla and SpaceX, two of the coolest companies in the world. He has found a bit of a hobby for his weekends. One day he was bored in traffic and tweeted a new idea for a company.

The company has begun tunneling underneath Los Angeles and even sold some hats, but today Elon Musk is making The Boring Company Flamethrower available for pre-order.

Shackers have certainly enjoyed flamethrowers in countless video games throughout history. From Dead Space, to Wolfenstein, to Doom, and Call of Duty, gamers have been setting all sorts of stuff on fire. Now we can take home our own real life The Boring Company Flamethrower for the low low price of $500. Elon might be turning into a supervillain.

Great for roasting nuts

The Boring Company website also touts the product as "Guaranteed to liven up any party!" and "World's safest flamethrower!" They are also offering a fire extinguisher sold separately (for exorbitant amounts of money). Flamethrowers will start shipping this Spring.

Don’t do this
