Mark Zuckerberg will eat only what he kills — literally

Kai Ryssdal May 26, 2011

This final note today, of which I know not what to make. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg apparently gives himself a personal challenge every year. Last year it was learning Chinese. Before that it was wearing a tie every day.

This year, something completely different. He’s only going to eat what he kills with his own two hands. More power to him for wanting to get closer to the food chain, but I’m obliged to close with a line from our New York bureau chief Heidi Moore:

“Those Winklevoss brothers, the ones suing Zuckerberg for $100 milllion — they better look out.”
