It is exactly 39 years since Don Gorske started eating the iconic double beef-patty sandwich from McDonald’s. He says he’s missed only eight days since his first Big Mac bite on May 17, 1972.
That works out to just under two Big Macs a day on average -- nearly a third of an American’s average daily caloric intake, two-thirds if you’re a resident of the Congo.
Is any burger – or any food, for that matter -- that good that someone would want to keep eating it twice a day for 13,871 days?
Mr. Gorske has no plans to stop eating Big Macs after No. 25,000, he told WGBA TV in Green Bay, Wis. “Not even $1 million could get me to go someplace else.”
