For many people, Fb has grow to be a social-media wasteland, suffering from conspiracy theories and crock-pot drama. However Mark Zuckerberg is seemingly nonetheless utilizing the platform prefer it’s 2004. On Monday, Zuckerberg shared a photo of two goats with a caption merely stating, “My goats: Max and Bitcoin.”
They’re cute goats! However, sadly, Bitcoin is a horrible identify for a goat. I’m sorry to this goat, but it surely’s true. Max is okay, if somewhat boring.
There’s some speculation in regards to the names being a coded message about Zuckerberg’s assist of the cryptocurrency, maybe implying that he’s a “Bitcoin maximalist.” This may be somewhat odd as Fb is predicted to launch its personal cryptocurrency, Diem, later this yr. (Diem was initially known as Libra, that are each higher goat names than Bitcoin.)
I’m guessing Zuckerberg didn’t intend for this put up to remind us of that point he killed a goat and fed it to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, but it surely completely did simply that. To refresh your reminiscence, right here’s what Dorsey stated in regards to the goat incident in a 2019 Rolling Stone interview:
“I’m going, ‘We’re consuming the goat you killed?’ [Zuckerberg] stated, ‘Yeah.’ I stated, ‘Have you ever eaten goat earlier than?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, I adore it.’ I’m like, ‘What else are we having?’ ‘Salad.’ I stated, ‘The place is the goat?’ ‘It’s within the oven.’ Then we waited for about half-hour. He’s like, ‘I feel it’s performed now.’ We go within the eating room. He places the goat down. It was chilly. That was memorable.”
So as to add somewhat extra context, in 2011, Zuckerberg apparently made it a “personal challenge” to solely eat what he killed, within the spirit of sustainability. It’s not clear whether or not that is nonetheless in apply as we speak. Right here’s hoping he simply smiles at the goats a lot and doesn’t, , eat them.
