I would like to see the size of this guy he's been eating Big Macs almost everyday since 1972.

20,000 and counting

By Renee DuFore Russell
the reporter

It was love at first bite back in 1972 when Don Gorske of Fond du Lac ate his first Big Mac.

On Monday, he ate his 20,000th McDonalds Big Mac and still relishes every mouthful.

Gorske, who has gained nationwide fame through his daily habit of stopping for a couple of Big Macs and keeping count, was surrounded by about 200 fans and curiosity seekers, and had microphones and camera lenses stuck in his face as he reached a McMilestone in his unusual avocation.

I heard about this guy a few years ago. My comment is that if this is what America considers a hero then it is no wonder why things are so bad.

I wonder if he can be used by the defense in lawsuits against McD's. They can always hold him up as an example of somebody who's not dead yet! *L*

I can't imagine getting so hooked on something that you actually would count each and every one over the course of 30 years. This guy's ticking!

(I think the "hero" thing was sarcasm, as that word, thankfully, didn't appear anywhere in the story!)

I think this may be the same man in the film Supersize Me, Evil.
If so, keep in mind this man never eats the fries

"At 6 feet tall and almost 85kg, Gorske said he proves that foods you love don't have to make you fat."

And a pic:

Looks like one of the Oasis guys! *L*
