Man Eats 30000th Big Mac, Setting New World Record

Man Eats 30000th Big Mac, Setting New World Record

A man in Wisconsin has consumed his 30,000 McDonald's Big Mac burger after eating two a day for more than four decades.

Don Gorske, 64, of Fond du Lac recorded the milestone Friday at a local McDonald's.

He's been eating Big Macs since 1972 when he bought his first one.

Gorske said he has eaten at least one Big Mac nearly every day since May 17, 1972, and has kept the receipts to prove it.

Gorske says he's eaten so many because he just loves hamburgers.

Sensex Ends Flat, HCL Tech Falls 5%; Kotak Mahindra Bank Rises 4%
Airtel (+2.5%), Indiabulls HF (+1%), HUL (+0.96%), Yes Bank (+0.59%) and Dr.Reddy's (+0.58%) were the top gainers on Nifty50. According to market observers, heavy selling pressure was witnessed in the auto, healthcare and metal stocks.

The food chain promoted the Big Mac fan's record-breaking ingestion, which happened under the "golden arches" on Military Road at 3 p.m. McDonald's Fox Valley's franchise owner D.W. Rause was there for the event. He keeps tracks of receipts, containers, and sandwich wrappers. Does consumption of Big Macs daily make him sick?

He ate his 20,000 Big Mac in 2004.

Big Macs have always been Gorske's thing - he's big enough to have a Wikipedia page detailing his history with the fast-food staple. The first time, he drove to McDonald's during a snowstorm and discovered it was closed.

Don Gorske has eaten a Big Mac almost every day since May 1972. At Don's last checkup both his cholesterol and blood pressure were just fine. He also was featured in the movie "Supersize Me".
