Mark Zuckerberg loves meat.

So much so, that he spent a whole year challenging himself to only eat meat from animals he killed himself — namely a herd of six goats he kept in his backyard. And during that year, he tried to feed one of those goats to Jack Dorsey, the Twitter CEO tells Rolling Stone in an interview published Wednesday. It didn't quite work out.

Under some "rule or regulation" where Zuckerberg lives in Palo Alto, California, "you can have six livestock on any lot of land," Dorsey explains to Rolling Stone. So he had six goats, and killed one of them with a "laser gun and then the knife" before Dorsey came over one day, the Twitter head said. Zuckerberg explained this process to Dorsey, told him he'd be serving the goat with salad, and then pulled the meat out of the oven. "It was cold," Dorsey said, so he just ate his salad.

If you're looking for some context, Zuckerberg sets self-improvement goals every year. In 2011, that meant he chose to "basically become a vegetarian since the only meat I'm eating is from animals I've killed myself," he confusingly explained at the time. He ended that challenge a year later, and has since gone on to devour meat-shaped birthday cakes and thoroughly explain how to grill brisket and ribs in a Facebook Live video. It's all very odd, so catch more of Dorsey's subtle digs at the carnivore at Rolling Stone. Kathryn Krawczyk
