Goat Alert: Avoid Mark Zuckerberg

New Year’s Resolutions:
1. Wear a tie every day
2. Learn Chinese
3. Kill a goat??

I get that Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, is innovative.  I’m all for swimming against the stream and forging your own path. But I’d rather my chicken arrives from the grocery store without a pulse. 

Every year ” title=”killed a goat in a humane manner” target=”_blank”>killed a goat in a humane manner by slitting its throat under direction from Palo Alto chef Jesse Cool, he then killed a pig in the same manner.

A pig killed humanely…still high treif.

There’s something to be said for putting a face on our entrée. I couldn’t do it.  I already guiltily avoid the eyes of aquarium fish in the sushi restaurant.  I’d sadly have to leave meat behind. But there’s still a gap in Zuckerberg’s food chain.  He kills an animal but then sends it to a butcher to be cut up for use.  Shouldn’t he be doing that? Gratefully and respectfully?

At least Zuckerberg kept his diet within the realm of reason.  There are always those who will only eat food that has fallen off the tree because picking the apple is murder.  Or raw foodies who would stare at my pot of boiling water in horror lest I kill my green beans. 

Aside from the pig, the whole diet has a kosher flavor with its intention of gratitude and respect.

Still, I think I’ll stick with gratitude via blessings.  I really should leave sharp knives to someone else.
