Bazillionare Elon Musk Twitters "Freemasons"; Masons Go Wild


by Christopher Hodapp

Online Masonic forums and Facebook pages were all atwitter Tuesday over a Twitter tweet by Elon Musk in which he referenced Freemasons.


Musk announced his purchase of a majority of the company's stock last week and posted this message as part of a thread opining on the possibility of charging a fee to use the platform. 

What was kind of amazing were the reactions of a lot of Masons over Musk simply mentioning the fraternity. 

"He noticed us! He noticed us!"

Odder were the responses of Masons who didn't get the joke he was making.

"Free? What's he talking about? My lodge charges $200 a year!"

Don't get excited - Musk was making a wisecrack, not nosing around for a lodge to join.

  2. He has a long record of liking to play with words and puns. Whatever else, he is clever.

  3. Okay. So, someone is going to have to explain Musk's comment to me. I don't get it. 1.) I didn't know the Freemasons had a downfall; and 2.) When did operative Masons give away their stone-cutting services for nothing? There must be some larger context that Musk was referencing. What was it?

    1. It's really silly. It's a pun. Freemasonry. FREEmasonry. So of course Freemasonry gives away services for free, get it? it's in the name!
      As for the downfall, it's just a part of the joke
