With shares of Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) trading at a record high, Elon Musk took to Twitter to taunt short sellers along with the SEC.

Musk said Tesla will make "fabulous short shorts in radiant red satin with gold trim," and "send some to the Shortseller Enrichment Commission to comfort them through these difficult times."

Musk later added, "SEC, three letter acronym, middle word is Elon’s."

It wasn't clear exactly what Elon meant by the provocation, but some Twitter users suggest the first word of the acronym proposed by Musk was, "suck". The third word isn't fit to print.
