The man who apparently ate a koala on the boat of a Sun Microsystems‘ executive, Mark Zuckerberg, is finding his latest diet hitting the news again.
The founder of the social notworking site, Facebook, has decided that he will only eat meat that he has killed himself.
When that would normally mean you would eat less meat, in Zuckerberg’s case it simply means taking to livestock with sharp objects.
Apparently he was seen dispatching a goat with a knife under the advice of Jesse Cool, a Silicon Valley chef and Zuckerberg neighbour. Slashing the goat’s throat is apparently the kindest cut of all.
Zuckerberg told Fortune magazine that slaughtering his own goats, chickens and pigs was part of his cunning plan to eat healthier foods
He said that he has learnt a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals and discovered that it is too easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day.”
Zuckerberg claims he is mostly vegetarian but started his new diet by flinging a live lobster into boiling water.
He said that killing his own food made the eating experience feel special, particularly after not eaten any seafood or meat in a while.
Zuckerberg enthused that many forget that a living being has to die so they can eat meat, so my goal revolves around not letting myself forget that and being thankful for what he has.
Zuckerberg met British Prime Minister David Cameron and unfortunately did not extend his “eat what you kill” experiment to human flesh. We would have liked to have seen Zuckerberg serve up Cameron’s liver with a nice Chianti fhfhfhfhfh.
