That first Big Mac was so good he's had 30000 of them

Don Gorske from Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin, broke the world record for "Most Big Macs consumed" on Friday when he ate his 30,000th one. And that in turn would work out to consuming 1.786 Big Macs every single day since the Nixon administration.

Gorske thought he had a Big Mac saved in the freezer, but was mistaken.

His accomplishment had been realized by Guinness World Records in 2016 when he had been tallied in at 28,788 major Macs. Gorske says that when he ate that first Big Mac, there was only one McDonald's in town, and he had just gotten his drivers' license. Over the almost 46 years since he had the first Big Mac, Gorske had only gone a total of eight days without eating one.
