Elon Musk's flamethrowers are listed on eBay for as high as $20000

In an unsurprising, yet unfortunate turn of events, Musk was blocked from shipping the Boring Company Flamethrower in February when customs agencies point blank refused to deliver a device with such a volatile name. Look for more from Elon Musk and the Boring Company coming soon.

Elon Musk reportedly has a net worth over $20 billion. You can buy one for $500.

This weekend Elon Musk held a pickup party at Boring Company headquarters for his flamethrower, which for legal reasons is officially called "Not-a-Flamethrower".

The clever idea behind these flamethrower pick up parties originally stemmed from the fact that shipping these devices proved to be quite hard given the fact that they contained propane.

As the promotional device started to land with customers, Musk posted a safety warning to customers on Twitter, stating: 'Please use as directed to avoid unintentionally burning things down.

The device comes with a 10-page manual which had additional tips: "Do not touch the not-a-flamethrower nozzle during or after use, as it could burn you".

Still on a roll, Musk followed up with a suggested application for the flamethrower: lighting BBQs and home fireplaces.

KitGuru Says: At the very least, Musk is allowing himself to run wild with his ideas in the Boring Company and there's no telling what the mad man genius will end up doing next.

'For simple & concise instructions, we drew upon wisdom in great Dr Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham"'.

The billionaire said his company will ship a so-called "ice blaster" before the winter.

This is not the first time he has referenced a ice-gun when addressing the tunnelling startup's future products on social media.

The Boring Company is a tunnel construction business founded in 2016 to provide the infrastructure for an underground Hyperloop.

Elon Musk hinted at the Boring Company's plans to launch a "freezegun" in a tweet back in January.
