In what is becoming the ultimate display of hubris - or perhaps a purposeful distraction from the Ghislaine Maxwell photograph that is making its way around the internet faster than coronavirus is spreading across the world - Elon Musk Tweeted out on Sunday afternoon that Tesla would now be selling "short shorts", in what is a continuing dig at short sellers.
Recall, last week, Musk took a swipe at both the SEC - again referring to them as the "Shortseller Enrichment Commission" and possibly suggesting that the regulator fellate him - and short sellers.
"Who wears short shorts," Musk tweeted last week, antagonizing short sellers. And in a separate exchange, Musk seemed to offer his approval for a pair of short shorts, with gold trim, that had the phrase "S*** Elon's C***" on them.
Musk took what was a stupid joke to begin with, laden with hubris and perhaps other mind-altering ego-droppings, and doubled down on it on Sunday, when he Tweeted out that "Limited edition short shorts now available" at the Tesla store.
He posted a link to the store, which shows actual short shorts for sale.
"Only $69.420!!" Musk Tweeted, doing his best impression of a middle schooler laughing uncomfortably while shooting root beer out of their nose and onto their Dungeons and Dragons board the first time they hear a sex joke.

Meanwhile, Musk continues to bicker with journalist Ken Klippenstein, as we laid out in our article this morning, regarding the details of his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, if any.
But, at least he can do so knowing another day has gone by where he has "bested" short sellers.
Elon, the allegation that Jeffrey Epstein was granted a private tour of SpaceX comes from a report in Business Insider published in January.— Ken Klippenstein (@kenklippenstein) July 5, 2020
Would you like me to send you a link?https://t.co/uQ56woaty8
As for the shorts...
Using what appears to be a prepubescent female model for his new short shorts seems like an odd flex for a guy under fire for his many ties to Jeff Epstein— TC (@TESLAcharts) July 5, 2020
