One person on a Musk-related subreddit claimed that the page includes a notice that The Boring Company's flamethrower will begin shipping in April - perhaps April 1.

He says a flamethrower is a "super bad idea".

For an extra $US30, those proud new flamethrower owners can "Buy an overpriced Boring Company fire extinguisher!"

Sales of The Boring Company's flamethrower, which seemed to start as a throwaway line to help the company sell hats, have already topped 7,000 units, according to a tweet from Musk early Monday.

This time, Musk is pre-selling either the coolest non-military flamethrower you ever saw or a neatly crafted prank. Yesterday, Elon Musk showed off a limited-release flamethrower that only costs $500 to purchase. The Boring Company's previous offering was a simple black baseball hat with the company's logo. A pre-order will set you back $500. " The flamethrower is not to be used "on Boring Company decorative lacquered hay bales or Boring Company dockside munitions warehouses". The name "Boring Company" is a play on words, since the company is actually focused on 'boring' tunnels for trains and his proposed Hyperloop.

For those insane enough to buy one of these there are only 20 000 'throwers available so you best get your order in quickly. Musk subsequently posted a video of himself running around an office with one of his toys, which appears to shoot a jet of flame a few feet. Those should decide to order one should expect to receive the weapon this spring, notes the store website.
