Wisconsin Man Sets Big Mac Record
According to WBAY, "A Wisconsin man who holds the Guinness world record for eating Big Macs celebrated another milestone Friday."
His name is Don Gorske, and he lives in Fond du Lac, a Wisconsin city about 250 miles from Cedar Rapids. Don is 64 years-old, and he just ate his 30,000th Big Mac!
The WBAY story said he's eaten at least one Big Mac almost every day since May 17th, 1972. A local math teacher calculated the "special sauce" intake the man has put in his body since 1972.....161.6 gallons! Wow, I wonder what his doctor thinks of all of this?
It turns out Gorske is in perfect shape. As a matter of fact, his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal and he weighs five pounds less than he did in 2011, when he ate his 25,000 Big Mac. Amazing.....truly amazing.
No surprise a story like this is comes out of Wisconsin. It seems like folks are a little different over there in cheese country...or should I say, Big Mac Country!
Congratulations Don, here's to 30,000 more.
Pass the Tums, brother.
