Elon Musk’s Secret ‘Your Mum’ Joke Leaves Internet In Hysterics


There are some jokes which never seem to grow old and this, of course, includes the classic ‘your mum’ joke.

Rooted in the eternal idea of a person’s parents being strictly non-sexual beings – this joke insinuates the joker has engaged in some down and dirty with the jokee’s mother.

The humour then rests on the jokee’s seething, flustered discomfort at this boundary being so rudely – yet amusingly – crossed.

It seems even billionaire entrepreneurs aren’t above a sly ‘your mum’ joke, albeit in a hilariously subtle way…

46-year-old Elon Musk may be a titan of business but he clearly can’t resist having a cheeky chuckle every now and then.

SpaceX’s nose-coned FSV fairing catcher, ‘Mr. Steven’, has the solemn task of helping to recover and reuse returning fairings with a humongous net.

However, in his spare time it seems Mr. Steven is more than capable of catching your mum’s heart; stopping it from being corroded in the watery depths of your parents’ bitter divorce.

In fact, it appears Mr. Steven is heading on over to your mum’s house right now; sizeable deck at the ready:

Yep, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the Marine Traffic website has stated Mr. Steven’s current destination port to be ‘Your Momshouse.’

There’s also the option to check out Mr. Steven’s ‘Latest Positions,’ but I don’t think you want to go down that particular rabbit hole my friend!

Creator of the Next Spaceflight app, Michael Baylor, grew wise to Mr. Steven’s filthy bank holiday weekend plans and tweeted the following message:

CONFIRMED: #SpaceX “fairing” recovery vessel Mr. Steven is heading for YOUR MOM’S HOUSE. Yes, you read that right. @elonmusk has some explaining to do.

Since Elon himself retweeted Michael, it’s fairly safe to assume the CEO is in on the naughty joke.

Oh Elon, you cheeky little prankster you!

Despite the disconcerting image of a boat rocking up to serenade your mum with its eardrum-piercing foghorn, people have been greatly amused by mischievous Elon’s high jinks.

One person chortled:

You definitely have some explaining to do @elonmusk !!! First of all, how did you get my mother’s address?!

Another guffawed:

Omg I needed a laugh. @elonmusk I love your sense of humour

This isn’t the first time our Elon has revealed a slightly edgy sense of humour.

Back in 2017, Rolling Stone reported how Elon has a framed poster of a shooting star in his SpaceX office. A perfectly standard image, one might presume.

However, the caption on the poster is more than just a little bit dark:

When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it’s really a meteor hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life.

Then you’re pretty much hosed, no matter what you wish for. Unless it’s death by meteorite.
