Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey (pictured below) has told a Rolling Stones journalist Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg once killed a goat and served it to Dorsey for dinner.
Speaking about Dorsey’s relationship with Zuckerberg, the Twitter CEO mentioned one particular evening when Zuckerberg asked him over for dinner.
According to Dorsey, it was during a period of time when Zuckerberg would only eat what he had killed himself.
Asked what his memorable encounter with Zuckerberg was, Dorsey replied: “Well, there was a year when he was only eating what he was killing.
“He made goat for me for dinner.
“He killed the goat.”
While Dorsey admitted Zuck didn’t kill the goat in front of him, he added: “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.”
As if the recount couldn’t get any stranger, Dorsey mentioned laser guns.
Clarifying, Dorsey said: “A stun gun. They stun it, and then he knifed it. Then they send it to a 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.
“I go, ‘We’re eating the goat you killed?’ He said, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘Have you eaten goat before?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, I love it.’
“I’m like, ‘What else are we having?’ ‘Salad.’ I said, ‘Where is the goat?’ ‘It’s in the oven.’
“Then we waited for about 30 minutes. He’s like, ‘I think it’s done now.’
“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,” he added.
Attempting to find some sense in the story, the Rolling Stones journalist responded: “It’s hard to find a metaphor in that.”
With Dorsey replying: “I don’t know what you’re going to do with that, but hopefully that’s not the headline. Revenge is a dish best served warm. Or cold.”
