Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg: Our New Responsible Carnivore
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is good at picking up on trends. His latest? Butchery. Locavorism. Sustainable eating. According to Fortune and CNN, Zuckerberg has recently decided only to eat meat he kills himself. Which news he announced, of course, on Facebook. May 4th Zuckerberg told his 847 friends: "I just killed a pig and a goat." No word on how many of those friends are fellow hunter-gatherers.
As Fortune reported:
Killing is just the kickoff. After that, the dead creatures go to a butcher in Santa Cruz, who cuts them into parts. Zuckerberg and his longtime girlfriend, Priscilla, have been cooking what he slaughters, eating what many people would not dare consume. He recently ate a chicken, including the heart and liver, and used the feet to make stock. He posted a photo of the bird on his Facebook page, along with a list of the dishes he made from it.
The "eating what many people would not dare consume" part is pretty funny. But we're glad to know Zuckerberg is making his own stock, and with the feet too. Now, please God, will somebody get Aaron Sorkin to write this up for the Food Network?
