Tesla Motors is apparently involved in organized crime, and if you drive a Tesla electric car then you are as well. 🙂 According to fliers that are being distributed in San Francisco, that is. Many Tesla owners have recently found said fliers on their vehicles and decided to share the humorous pranks(?!).
Sort of hard to imagine someone being serious with this, after having read it. But why else would someone go through all the trouble of canvassing San Francisco looking for Teslas if they weren’t serious? Why else would someone (or a group of someones) actually going around San Francisco searching for the relatively rare Tesla Model S or Roadster.
Some of the other more humorous portions of the flier reference Tesla’s “manipulations of Congress”; the safety issues with Tesla’s EVs that have somehow “burned planes”; the question of why Tesla has “caused so many homicides”; Tesla’s “non-automotive designed batteries”; and the allegation that Tesla is in-bed with Google and created the EV specifically to keep track of rich people. 🙂
Here’s the full flier. Enjoy.
Folks in SF are leaving anonymous flyers on Teslas exposing the "truth" about the company. Mind-blowing. cc @elonmusk pic.twitter.com/5xyJz62Mlu

To be clear, I do recommend that you enter the sweepstakes. 🙂
I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
