Man Eats 25,000 Big Mac, 39 Years After Eating 1st one

KSCB News - May 18, 2011 8:18 am

A retired prison guard who appeared in the anti-fast food documentary "Super Size Me" has eaten his 25,000th Big Mac on the 39th anniversary of eating his first.

Don Gorske was honored at a ceremony marking the meaty milestone after eating yet another Big Mac at a McDonald’s in his hometown of Fond du Lac.

The 57-year-old Gorske says he first ate a Big Mac on May 17, 1972, after buying a car. He actually ate nine that day and has gone only eight days since without eating one. Most days he eats two.

Gorske says he probably has an obsessive-compulsive disorder and
likes repetition. He says he carefully documented his consumption
and kept many of the burger boxes and receipts.

He says his doctor says he’s healthy.
