Fond du Lac's Gorske chows down 30000th Big Mac

A 64-year-old McDonald's enthusiast has celebrated eating his 30,000th Big Mac.

On Friday, a man from Fond du Lac, in Wisconsin, downed his 30,000 Big Mac, smashing the previous world record.

For many people, having one Big Mac is enough to satisfy their fast food craving for a couple of days. He made a promise to his mum who made him promise not to eat a Big Mac on the day she died on 27 April 1988. He drove in a snowstorm to buy the sandwich but the restaurant was closed.

If success could be measured in McDonald's Big Macs, then a Wisconsin man has done it all. He keeps tracks of receipts, containers, and sandwich wrappers.

Gorske also collects mementos of his Big Mac orders. He keeps almost everything, although he lost about 7,000 items when a tornado ripped the roof off his house. He says he is often asked about the effects of all those Big Macs on his health.




Gorske, tall and lanky, has a meticulous memory and a penchant for details. He says his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal. Among the other Big Mac-related facts he knows is the date that McDonald's switched from lettuce leaves to shredded lettuce - February 10, 1999.

The Big Mac fan's television appearances include the "Rachel Ray Show", "Jimmie Kimmel", "Lopez Tonight", "I've got a Secret", "Oprah" and "Inside Edition".

In 2003 Ellen DeGeneres requested Gorske's cholesterol be checked. He also appeared in the movie Supersize Me.

He spoke to the press before his historic meal and reminisced about the time he first crossed the McDonald's threshold for a Big Mac.

Each Big Mac consists of two 1.6oz beef patties, three slices of bread, American cheese, lettuce, pickles, onions and a "special sauce" made up mainly of mayonnaise and ketchup.
