That's Big, Mac

Don’t Challenge This Bloke To An Eating Contest

A Wisconsin man has eaten 23,000 Big Mac burger in 36 years. Don Gorske, who says he is not overweight, began eating the burgers on May 17, 1972, and has kept every receipt to prove it. He has written a book about his experience after he became fascinated with the way the fast food chain tracks its customer numbers.

FOOTNOTE: Burger meister.

Good Lord! He's NOT overweight? He must run five miles a day and eat nothing else :-)

I heard about this guy! Apparently he has a serious case of OCD, and the only day on which he didn't eat a Big Mac was the day of his mother's funeral, because she specifically asked him not to on that day.

Its a wonder he has lived to tell the tale!

Kathryn said...

Did the story happen to mention how many heart attacks he has had since 1972? Just curious. ;)

This is someone who really deserves a break today!

It just amazes me that with all those big macs, he's not supersized.

I watched "Supersize Me" a few months ago, and this dude is featured in it. He's a tall, skinny guy, whose cholesterol is excellent. He must have the most amazing genes. Maybe I should have his baby...

I read about him and just the notion of eating that much mcDonalds made me want to vomit. I can't imagine actually doing it. ewww.

'Course, he SAYS he's not overweight, but I want his photo posted first to believe that..

I haven't eaten McDonald's in 15-20 years, myself. I dread the very thought--the "food" just sits in your gut like a rock. Horrible!
