Billionaire tech titan Elon Musk took to Twitter Sunday to offer an update on his tunneling company's sale of promotional hats. He both said they would be "capping" production (indeed, the pun is not lost on anyone) and that the discussion of hats was "stupid."
"To preserve the transcendent majesty & specialness of The Boring Company cap, we are capping cap orders at 50,000 caps. Almost there …" Must tweeted.
If The Boring company has sold "almost" 50,000 hats, the caps have been selling quickly. On Nov. 21, Musk said his tunneling venture had raised more than $300,000 from selling hats at $20 each.
When a commentator asked why The Boring Company was going to stop production and sale of the caps at 50,000, another user broke down the math: 50,000 times $20 equals $1 million. Musk responded with "Busted."
