A Wisconsin man who since 2016 has held the Guinness World File for probably the most McDonald's Massive Macs consumed has reached one other milestone after consuming his 30,000Massive Mac on Friday.
Don Gorske snacks to his 18,000th Huge Mac at Fond du lac High-school, in Fond du Lac, Wis., Nov. 6, 2001. Over the almost 46 years since he had the first Big Mac, Gorske had only gone a total of eight days without eating one.
Gorske said he has eaten at least one Big Mac nearly every day since May 17, 1972, and has kept the receipts to prove it.More news: Despite Extension, The EU Is Unhappy With Trump's Tariff Exemptions
But to understand just how devoted a fan Gorske is, I think we need to break out the calculator. He said that the first time he missed eating a Big Mac was in 1982. And he doesn't appear to be suffering for his cause: Ellen DeGeneres had his cholesterol checked in 2003 and came up with 140, and he's run a marathon-with Big Mac No. 21,387 in hand.
The last day he didn't have a Big Mac was Thanksgiving Day in 2011, when McDonald's was closed and he thought he had a burger in the freezer. 30,000 goddamn Big Macs. USA Today reports that he has thousands of receipts, sandwich wrappers, and containers.
He ate his 20,000 Big Mac in 2004. He also was featured in the movie "Supersize Me".
