You Can Help Elon Musk Name His Boring Machine

Elon Musk is building a “boring machine” to dig tunnels for vehicles and trains, and now’s your chance to suggest names.

The SpaceX and Tesla (TSLA) CEO took to Twitter Thursday night to muse about what to name his new creation.

“Thinking about a name for our first tunneling machine …” he tweeted. “Maybe Ultimate Boring Machine, the Second.”

Users quickly began interacting with Musk, asking questions and suggesting their own names for The Boring Company‘s machine. Musk responded to a few he liked. “By calling it “the Second”, it has more credibility,” he clarified to one confused tweeter.

A little more than an hour later, a new name had caught his fancy. “Kinda like Snoop Dug,” he wrote.

By early Friday morning the Snoop Dug tweet had been liked by some 5,500 twitter users, edging Ultimate Boring Machine, the Second by about a hundred likes.
