Show dem balls bro
Actually I just threw that in there cause it was the first thing that came to mind. The rocket does not have the classic "bell end", therefore, doesn't really look like a penis.

Perhaps Elon's penis has this weird aerodynamically adventegeous shape?

Elon Musk's CuckTruck smashed during demo

I really have to call that window breaking staged. I mean it's giving bad looks to the product obviously... but probably reached 10 times more ppl. than nothing happening, typical Musk take-all-publicity stunt. Then they'll come out with the "improved glass" or whatever. Still, fuck is up with the design team? :lol: Looks like it's from a 20yo computer game.

Elon's attention seeking again. :yep

He gets a kick out of squandering public money while making fools believe he's actually doing something worthwhile. The level of fanboy worship shows just how gullible folk are. He 'invents' nothing, just buys in to stuff already invented by 'real' geniuses.

The pleasure is intensified when he's really rubbing it in your face with ever more ridiculous stunts like the 'rocket' and the 'truck'.

He doesn't care about bad publicity as long as he's in the headlines.

Elon doesn't give a shit about anything else other than being the centre of attention..
