attacked by Big Mac 23,000 times

This week, Don Gorske, 54, of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin reported that he achieved milestone that will probably never be surpassed.

Mr. Gorske has eaten at least two Big Macs nearly every day since May 17, 1972. That means that he has eaten 23,000 of the famous hamburgers.

Do you doubt his record? Gorske, who lives with an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, has kept every Big Mac box and receipt since his obsession began.

“I enjoy them every day, I need two to fill me up.” said Gorske. He also says that he has no intention of changing.

One might expect that a guy who eats at least two Big Macs per day would be pretty rotund. Not so. Gorske is 6-foot 2 and weighs a trim 185 pounds. He keeps himself fit by exercising every day.

Gorske has only missed eating his beloved Big Macs 8 times since 1972. He can clearly remember each day he was deprived (usually due to weather). To prevent another Big Mac-less day, Gorske now keeps a couple in his freezer to use in case of emergency.

I have to admit, that's very impressive. Not only did he ate two big macs everyday, he didn't get sick of them. I can't even eat cereal in the mornings more more than 3 days in a row.
