Man eats 30000th Big Mac hamburger

Posted May 07, 2018

An American man has eaten his 30,000th Big Mac this week, in the same McDonald's restaurant where he first tasted the sandwich in back in 1972.

"At the time it was the only McDonald's in town and I had just gotten my driver's license", Gorske said.

Don Gorske, star of 2005 film 'Don Gorske: Mac Daddy', reached his historic milestone on Friday at the same branch in which he tried his first Big Mac in 1972.

It's also a new record for the most Big Macs ever consumed.

The Associated Press contributed to the record.

The grandfather claims that 90 percent of his diet consists of Big Macs.

Gorske, tall and lanky, has a meticulous memory and a penchant for details.

But it's an absurd number of Big Macs. Since then, 64-year-old Don has missed eating one of the sandwiches only eight times.

On Friday, Gorske showed the proof that he ate his 30,000 Big Mac.

He continued: "People make fun of me, but it never bothered me", Gorske said.

As for his health, Don poo-poos the naysayers and health brigade, saying that at his last medical check-up, he had low cholesterol and "perfect" blood pressure. On the day McDonald's founder Ray Kroc died in 1984, Gorske ate his 5,978th Big Mac. 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 2003, Ellen DeGeneres asked him to get his cholesterol checked, and it was 140.

The McDonald's restaurant on Military Road publicized the Big Mac fan's feat at 3:00 p.m.

Not only that, but in 2006 he finished the San Diego marathon while holding his 21,387th Big Mac, proving once and for all that he is indestructible. On April 27 1988, he was true to his word.
