America's soft and sweaty boy, Mark Zuckerberg, was grilled before Congress today. And in preparation, it appears the thoughtful legislators of this hallowed body provisioned seating befitting the station of Silicon Valley's milkiest son.

Per Washingtonian photographer Evy Mages this morning, a padded insert occupied the chair which would the arse of Facebook's CEO. Was this in preparation for an unusually long session? Or was this a request by the potentially height-conscious Zuckerberg team? Does Mark usually sit in what amounts to an adult high-chair in the hours he's out of the public eye? We reached out to Facebook for more information but had not received a reply at time of writing.
Whatever the thinking, we hope our special guy felt comfortable and tall enough to answer the few pressing questions we've been having. Good luck out there, tiger.
Tech companies pretend they don’t understand the subtlety of the bias their platforms introduce, but OF COURSE they do.
Zuckerberg is 5’7”
His team has him sitting on a 4” cushion during testimony because they know it’s important for him not to look small or meek in the pics. pic.twitter.com/9on6W3eppi
