The McDonald's "Most Big Macs consumed" record has been broken and it's MADNESS
HOW is this possible?
Well I think we should direct that question to Don Gorske.
As this man from Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin, broke the world record for "Most Big Macs consumed" on Friday when he ate his 30,000th one. Yep, 30,000th Big Mac!!!
Gorske has been obsessed with the burgers since he tried his first one back in that same McDonald's in 1972, 46 years ago.
The Big Mac-aholic has also kept close tabs on his own stats over the years, estimating that it took him just 356 days to eat his first 1000 Big Macs — which clocks in at more than two per day.
Having now eaten 30,000 over the past 46 years, that means on average Gorske eats 1.8 Big Macs per day for four-and-a-half decades. According to his own calculations, there have only been roughly eight days in that time when he didn't eat a Big Mac.
It’s one for the history books. He’s done it. Local folk hero Don Gorske has eaten his 30,000th Big Mac. Let the record show it took place 3:30pm at the Fond du Lac @McDonalds. He cautions this may be his last milestone, projecting 40,000 would come in 2032. #SuperSizeMe #WISN12 pic.twitter.com/4rJ5lTCYui

Asked about the haters and doubters, Gorske was serene: "People make fun of me, but it never bothered me. At my last medical check-up I had low cholesterol and my blood pressure was perfect."
Not only that, but in 2006 he finished the San Diego marathon while holding his 21,387th Big Mac, proving once and for all that he is indestructible.
There you have it folks — the secret to good health. 30,000 goddamn Big Macs.
