Wisconsin Man Eats 30000th Big Mac Burger, Plans To Hit 40000

Don Gorske has been eating Big Macs for more than 46 years and has set the record for most Big Macs consumed in the Guinness Book of World Records.

He says he's eaten a Big Mac nearly every day since May 17, 1972.

But to understand just how devoted a fan Gorske is, I think we need to break out the calculator.

A man dubbed the "Big Mac Daddy" ate his 30,000th Big Mac at a Wisconsin McDonald's on Friday.

Indeed, Gorske reports that there have only been eight days during which he didn't eat a Big Mac that entire time: once because an intense snowstorm stopped him from reaching McDonald's, and once on the day in 1988 when his mother died.

"We are lovin' Don Gorske's enthusiasm for our iconic Big Mac sandwich and appreciate his ongoing loyalty", said a spokesman for McDonald's US.

On Friday, Gorske showed the proof that he ate his 30,000 Big Mac. The man lost around 7,000 containers in 1990 when a tornado hit his house.

Tall and lanky, with a graying ponytail and friendly demeanor, Gorske has obsessive compulsive disorder and a meticulous memory, which lends to his Big Mac habit and his penchant for details. He said that the first time he missed eating a Big Mac was in 1982. Among the other Big Mac-related facts he knows is the date that McDonald's switched from lettuce leaves to shredded lettuce - February 10, 1999. In case you're wondering, he says his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal - and he weighs five pounds less than he did 5,000 Big Macs ago. In 2003, Ellen DeGeneres asked him to get his cholesterol checked, and it was 140. He also appeared in the movie Supersize Me.

The Big Mac was introduced in 1968 and features two all-beef patties on sesame seed buns with cheese, pickles, onions and a special sauce.
