Wisconsin Man Eats 25,000th Big Mac Today May 17, 2011 at 7:11AM by Katie Robbins | 1 Comment Today McDonald's will celebrate 25,000 Big Macs served. To just one man.
It's taken Wisconsin man Don Gorske 39 years to reach this auspicious milestone. He first started eating McDonald's iconic burgers on May 17, 1972, and since then, only eight days have passed without Gorske downing a Big Mac; and on many days he eats two.
Gorske, 57, who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder, began his habit at age 18.
"A person like me, I just don't change too much," he told the Daily Mail. "It's pretty much two Big Macs a day." http://www.delish.com/food/recalls-revi … ?GT1=47001 well the article didn't mention any health problems so i don't know if he has any ill effects form this habit....
Since he has OCD, I guess he must be patronizing the same McDonalds outlet all this years. So interested in his health check-up results. What a nice collection he has: Big Mac boxes' designs of the decades
This apparently started in his teens when as a Spotty, immature and chubby young bloke, girls refused to acknowledge him and laughed at what he described as his 'Lard-arse!'
His brother (who had been trying to set the quarter pounder eating record at the time, in Oregan) had apparently suggested by phone, that he commence a 'workout regime' at the local goldenarches gym, so that he could get a date with a real girl instead of a sock puppet!
Clearly, to this day he thanks McDs for helping him to lose his lard-arse and his sock puppet for what may well be... a Better Set of Buns
As insane as that is, he eats 2 big macs a day. One of the reasons he's not 500 pounds is because he didn't set the record by eating 10 big macs a day. He's as skinny as a rail, meaning he probably doesn't sit on the couch all day eating big macs.
The reason people have so many complications from fast food is because they load up on fries, soda, sauce, and then go home and compliment that with more junk.
I'm not writing this to support eating big macs, personally I hate fast food, especially McDonalds, but as unhealthy as the sandwich is, it's far better than going to Outback and eating a blooming onion, which has 4 times the calories, not to mention the fact that the whole thing is fried. Shall I say death on a plate?
There are chances that he may develop serious health complications from his big mac diet, but there are plenty people who eat out everyday and have a much worse diet. The sad reality is if he were fat this wouldn't be news, but McD's probably see's him as Subway (also unhealthy) sees Jared.
