Guy Has Eaten 30K Big Macs

Another day, another burger, and one major McMilestone for one man. Don Gorske, 64, recently downed his 30,000th Big Mac from McDonald's.

Gorske typically eats 14 Big Macs each week, purchasing them in bulk and microwaving them at home, according to the Guinness book. And that in turn would work out to consuming 1.786 Big Macs every single day since the Nixon administration.

At the price of $3.57 each, Gorske would have spend an estimated $80,000 on the fast food hamburgers in the last 46 years. He drove in a snowstorm to buy the sandwich but the restaurant was closed.

"While he has managed through the years to preserve and categorize most everything related to his Big Mac obsession, he did lose about 7,000 or so Styrofoam cartons that were damaged in a tornado that blew the soffits off his house on June 2, 1990", the paper reported. He has an impressive collection of receipts, burger wrappers, and containers.

Because of Jacobs's slim margin of victory, the race may take a few days to be officially called. Third-place finisher Bob Thomas tallied 11,296 votes.

On Friday, Gorske showed the proof that he ate his 30,000 Big Mac. He keeps almost everything, although he lost about 7,000 items when a tornado ripped the roof off his house.

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

"Don has a passion for Big Macs like no other", Rause said. In 2003, Ellen DeGeneres asked him to get his cholesterol checked, and it was 140. 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.

The retired prison guard first sunk his teeth into a Big Mac on May 17, 1972, and has been keeping track of his consumption ever since. He gave them a half-hour presentation before taking that record-breaking bite into two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, and onions on a sesame seed bun.
