25,000th Big Mac: Wisconsin man to hit milestone at local McDonald's
57-year-old Don Gorske has special plans for Tuesday, May 17: He's going to be eating his 25,000th Big Mac at McDonald's! The Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin resident usually eats two a day and had his first Big Mac on -- wait for it -- May 17, 1972. 39 years later, he's on his 25,000th.
A special ceremony is set to go down at the McDonald's in his hometown to commemorate the milestone achievement. Gorske has kept most of the boxes and receipts of his 24,999 previous Big Macs.
Gorske says his 25,000th "two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun" is a milestone because people believed he wouldn't live this long.
Since 1972, Gorske has only gone eight days without eating a Big Mac. Talk about commitment!
