On October 9th, Elon Musk and Tesla Motors Want to “Unveil the D”
I can't tell you what I'm thinking right now.

Oh. Oh boy. There’s so many poorly chosen words in that sentence.
Elon Musk, founder Tesla Motors and SpaceX (as well as real-life Tony Stark, depending on who you ask), tweeted out this promotional picture for what many presume to be Tesla’s latest upcoming car model on his personal Twitter account last night. So that excited shrieking sound you heard about 14 hours ago? That was the entire Internet understanding the hilarious gift they’d been given.
And if you, like Musk, are not exactly up on the lingo when it comes to that particular phrase, just pretend you are 12 years old again and search your tiny pre-pubescent feelings. There. It’s exactly what you think it is.
For his part, Musk was gracious about the unfortunate implications of “the D” when the term’s online definition was pointed out to him. You know, if you believe that he didn’t do this on purpose. Considering that he wanted to name his electric cars the Model S, Model E, and Model X before rival company Ford objected, I’m gonna go ahead and guess that it crossed his mind even if he didn’t know the reference.
I love the Internet. Comments had me literally ROFL. No, it wasn’t intentional. Glad I didn’t mention the other letter! — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 2, 2014
Wait, so what’s the other letter that it would exacerbate this situation even further? B? T? V? Are his next models just going to spell D-I-C-K as a workaround of his original S-E-X plan? The world wants to know, Elon! Give us the D…etails!
