Dawn of the Goobertruck

Cybertruck’s not just ugly, its name is unbelievably poseur. Guy pretending to be an engineer named it “cyber,” which is nails on a blackboard to techies :D

That prefix is used by DOD, old guys in suits, and ’80s fakey hacker flicks. It’s not just Elmo being déclassé, it’s a public confession he doesn’t know tech. It’s like if the mayor of SF called it “Frisco.” He might as well have named it Backtracing the VB-Truck.

Goobertruck’s as crude as Elmo Twitter, and for the same reason: his robotaxi fraud. It made Tesla execs so much money, they stopped pushing back on his terrible ideas; it made him enough to catch and kill Twitter. Got enough rope to go full petard.
