Can you believe this? Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook fame almost became a vegetarian because he wouldn’t eat any meat that he hadn’t killed himself? Can you imagine killing an animal?

It appears that Zuckerberg sets himself a personal challenge every year, some of his past challenges have been learning to speak Mandarin and forcing himself to wear a tie everyday. This is so weird, why doesn’t he try living among the poor for a year to see what that feels like. At least he could be doing some good somewhere in the world with these personal challenges, he has enough cash to help somewhere. Well, it appears, that this years challenge is to only eat the meat that he kills, he says “I think many people forget that a living being has to die for you to eat meat, so my goal revolves around not letting myself forget that and being thankful for what I have.” “This year I’ve basically become a vegetarian since the only meat I’m eating is from animals I’ve killed myself.”  He further said, “So far, this has been a good experience. I’m eating a lot healthier foods and I’ve learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals.”

Zuckerberg originally got this idea from a chef, Jesse Cool, who runs a restaurant near to Zuckerberg’s home in California. The first thing that he killed was a lobster, which he dropped into a pot of boiling water. Next he posted on Facebook, “I just killed a pig and a goat”, apparently he killed the goat with a knife. What next Mr. Zuckerberg? Hopefully our wildlife protectors in Africa will ensure that you never get a hunting license to come here and try to kill our lions and elephants as the next creatures on your diet!

Did you know Mr. Zuckerberg that you could have just lived on the farm for a week in order to learn about raising animals and sustainable farming, you didn’t need to slaughter the poor creatures yourself.

As we say in sunny South Africa – Sies man!
