    He said Chapter 14.5 Bankruptcy.

    Any idea what that one is? I'm googling furiously.

    If he's joking about it, does that imply that he's got some good news to share regarding production numbers in a few days?

    Oh Elon. Gotta luv him.

    I just redirected my $1,000 reservation towards 100 bottles of #teslaquilla.

    No, a big FU would be the share price over 350 again. Remember the shortsville tweet? I haven’t seen much taunting lately... they do need some new hype to get the narrative back. Flamethrowers and this bit aren’t going to get the job done.

    Jokes aside, do they want to attempt to raise capital in the current atmosphere of negativity?!

    OK, I admit: I am so confused.

    All this time the word out of Shortsville has been that all of us have been drinking Kool-Aid. And now did I just learn that it is teslaquila?

    Mebbe thasss why the wurld ish shpinnning so.

    Too much FUD everywhere. Surprisingly even in this forum with S, X, and Roadster owners who've gone through it before. I'm glad Elon can burst this negative media bubble with some humor.

    It's time for Tesla supporters to push back on this doom and gloom when this company is trying to do so much good while others get away with so much bad without even a word of criticism.

    What an unfortunate coincidence that Tesla should go bankrupt on April Fools’ Day. And you would have hoped Elon could have at least spelled “bankrupt” correctly. On the bright side, those panel gaps on the 3 behind him look decent. Shame it doesn’t matter anymore.

    That looks like an S behind him? No hockey pucks.
