Elon Musk, known for his eccentric online presence, recently caused a Twitter frenzy with his intriguing proposal to Wikipedia. Musk, the tech magnate with a penchant for unorthodox ventures, made an eyebrow-raising offer that left the internet abuzz.
In classic Musk style, the Tesla CEO extended an astonishing ₹8000 crore donation to Wikipedia. But here’s the twist—it came with a catch. Musk’s proposal involved a rather ‘creative’ rebranding of the platform to “Dickipedia.” His rationale? A pursuit of accuracy, though his approach left many questioning if he had spent a bit too much time in his futuristic labs.
Musk injected humor into the mix by imposing a playful condition: the name change should be in effect for a minimum of one year. With a mischievous digital grin, he remarked, “I’m no fool.” This move, combined with a cheeky reference to Wikipedia’s fundraising efforts, left the tech world both amused and bewildered.
