Um, Did Mark Zuckerberg Kill a Goat With a Laser Gun?

Um, Did Mark Zuckerberg Kill a Goat With a Laser Gun?

Listen, we’ve all heard stories of young tech billionaires and their penchant for exotic toys and their strange, crazy lifestyles. (That was basically the entire premise of the James Franco/Bryan Cranston comedy Why Him?, and who didn’t see that movie?)

But, this story is a little unsettling.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey told Rolling Stone about a time he had dinner with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. Just two young successful dudes hanging out over some ‘za, right? Wrong. This evening involved eating a goat that Zuckerberg killed with a laser gun.

Back in 2011, Zuckerberg made the vow that for one year, he would only eat meat from animals he personally had killed. This sounds like the behavior of a super villain, but Zuck said it was part of a process in which he could better understand where food comes from so he wouldn’t take it for granted.

Anyway, Dorsey told RS: “He made goat for me for dinner. He killed the goat.” Dorsey was asked if he personally witnessed the killing. His response: “No. He killed it before. I guess he kills it. He kills it with a laser gun and then the knife. Then they send it to the butcher.”

A knife and a laser gun?! Rolling Stone obviously asked for more details, and Dorsey seemed to backtrack a bit: “I don’t know. A stun gun. They stun it, and then he knifed it.” As Gizmodo notes, it would be incredibly difficult and inhumane to kill a goat with a stun gun.

Maybe Dorsey is just confused. Or, maybe Zuckerberg, one of the world’s richest people, actually has a cache of awesome laser guns.

Hopefully, the world will never know.
