About

Elon Musk's "My Bedside Table" Tweet refers to a viral Twitter post by Elon Musk showing a photograph of his bedside table with two guns, the painting Washington Crossing the Delaware, four cans of caffeine-free Diet Coke and a vajra sitting on it. The tweet was posted in late November 2022 and went viral in the hours after it was shared, inspiring memes parodying the post that include photos of a bedside table with absurd things on it alongside the same caption "my bedside table."

Origin

On November 28th, 2022, Elon Musk posted a photo of his bedside table to Twitter,[1] writing, "My bedside table" (shown below). The photo shows four empty cans of Diet Coke on the table, a revolver, a flintlock pistol in a case and a Buddhist vajra.[4] The revolver is purportedly a cosplay model of the Diamondback from TF2 or Otar's Revolver from Deus Ex. [5][6] The tweet gained over 402,000 likes and 26,000 retweets in roughly six hours, and just 10 minutes after posting, Musk commented under the tweet, "There is no excuse for my lack of coasters."
