MONK: I really hope the Boss pulls us off this Twitter support role soon. I don’t even know what to tell people any more.

ALEX: Whenever they complain about whatever it is they’re doing over there, I just laugh, letting a little bitterness seep in, then i say “yeah, tell me about it.” For some reason that seems to help.

ELON MUSK: (Carrying a fan attached to a club.) It is I, Elon Musk!

ALEX: What exactly are you carrying?

ELON MUSK: It’s my fan club.

Now we know who to blame if/when Elon starts carrying one of those fan-clubs around.
Makes me worry how fast some might be trying to show him this strip.
It is his humour, and I could even see him linking to it.
So if he starts selling such things, hopefully you get a commission.

I spent 20 years gleefully mocking Bill Gates and never once got an email from him, or even from his lawyers. I doubt this kind of stuff reaches those guys, I’m a pretty small fish in an exponentially growing pond. 😀

That fun mocking of Billy didn’t include anything I recall that he could have fun with, so unlikely any flunkies would have passed it on up towards him.
The Fan-Club on the other hand is the type of goofy humour EH would likely enjoy, and might just produce a limited run of them for sale just for the fun of it. With the advert line of “Perfect accompaniment for those signing on for the B-Ark he is building” 😉

I dunno, I’d imagine his fan club to be more like wind turbines…

You know, for irony’s sake.
