Another day, another episode of two tech titans arguing on social media.

This week’s incident has been brought to us by OpenAI’s Sam Altman and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who are arguing about whose large language model (LLM) is better.

Musk’s post continued: “Humor is clearly banned at OpenAI, just like the many other subjects it censors. That’s why it couldn’t tell a joke if it had a goddamn instruction manual. It’s like a comedian with a stick so far up its ass, it…
