Apparently Mark Zuckerberg Killed a Goat with a Laser Gun For Dinner

Food |

According to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, the Facebook founder once served him goat for dinner that he himself had shot with a laser gun.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Dorsey was asked about his most memorable moment with Zuckerberg, to which responded, “There was a year when he was only eating what he was killing… He made goat for me for dinner. He killed the goat...He killed it before. I guess he kills it. He kills it with a laser gun and then the knife. Then they sent it to the butcher, evidently in Palo Alto there’s a rule or regulation that you can have six livestock on any lot of land, so he had six goats at the time.” That's quite a home-cooked meal...

Dorsey was reluctant, but after verifying that Zuckerberg had done this before, he gave it a shot. A Facebook spokesperson told PEOPLE in a statement that, "Mark’s personal challenge for 2011 was to only eat meat that he killed and helped butcher himself. He said that we should be thankful and understand where our food comes from and he spent that year putting it into practice.” This makes sense, but one particular detail still stands out...

While Zuckerberg's personal challenge certainly helps to explain the dinner, it doesn't explain the laser gun. Upon further investigation, it seems that Dorsey was referring to a stun gun, a very standard butchering tool, as opposed to some sort of futuristic laser device. Either way, this was definitely an odd encounter for Dorsey, who added, "We go in the dining room. He puts the goat down. It was cold. That was memorable. I don't know if it went back in the oven. I just ate my salad." If given the chance, would you RSVP to that invitation?
