Elon Musk, Record Breaking Loser… a limerick

Tesla, SpaceX, and now Twitter,
Three companies in the shitter
There’s one common thread
The money they’ve bled
Record losses made Elon bitter

•~•

Guinness record breaking is quite a feat
Musk’s burden has begun to deplete
$200 billion
Lost by the villain
He’s still rich: downfall incomplete

“I’ve LOST more money than you’ll EVER HAVE!” ~ Elon Musk

He said that in a self-aggrandizing way. Does his statement make you inferior? It was meant to.

Elon Musk’s boastfulness reminded me of a bad day I had several years ago. As I sat with a colleague waiting to board a flight at DFW Airport, I bragged, “look at my impulse buy.” I had just bought it, adding debt to my credit card, and feeling sick during the transaction because I knew I had no business buying it. I had no disposable income. It was the newly released, most pimped out iPhone. Ten minutes after I finished showing it off, it was gone. Someone had pickpocketed me during boarding. The phone was so new that I had yet to put a screen lock on or any other security feature. I am the idiot in this story.

Ya get me, Elon? That makes you the idiot in your story. Own it.
