Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has recalled a unique dining experience he shared with Mark Zuckerberg – during a year in which the Facebook CEO was “only eating what he was killing.”

According to Dorsey, who recently spoke with Rolling Stone, the most memorable moment between himself and Zuckerberg revolved around a dinner of goat that the Facebook founder had killed himself with a “laser gun.”

After referring to Zuckerberg as a “very, very smart businessman,” Dorsey said: “He made goat for me for dinner. He killed the goat.”

The Twitter CEO then clarified that Zuckerberg did not kill the goat in front of him but “killed it before” their meal.

“I guess he kills it,” he said. “He kills it with a laser gun and then the knife. Then they send it to the butcher.”

At the urging of Rolling Stone, Dorsey then corrected himself, and identified the tool used to kill the goat as a stun gun – not a laser gun.

“I don’t know. A stun gun. They stun it, and then he knifed it. Then they send it to a butcher,” he said.

According to Dorsey, once the goat had returned from the butcher, Zuckerberg attempted to cook it in the oven and serve it along with salad for dinner.

However, the 30 minutes Zuckerberg allotted to cooking the goat was apparently not enough as Dorsey told the magazine that when he set it down “it was cold.”

“That was memorable. I don’t know if it went back in the oven. I just ate my salad,” Dorsey reminisced.

In addition to revealing the dinner menu at Zuckerberg’s house, Dorsey also discussed his hope that Facebook will be able to work together with the rest of the internet to “end this distraction of nationalism” and “help the world realise that we’re all facing the same problems.”
