    Elon Musk And Grimes Named Their Son X Æ A-12, And The Jokes Basically Wrote Themselves

    I have to laugh.

    On Monday, Elon Musk announced on Twitter that Grimes had given birth to a son — their first child together, and Elon's seventh after fathering six children with ex-wife Justine Wilson.

    The child's name? X Æ A-12 Musk.

    That's X as in X-ray, Æ as in, like, Encyclopædia Britannica (which is literally the only place I've ever seen the letter Æ), A as in Apple, hyphen, 12.
