Fond du Lac man plans to eat 25,000th Big Mac

Posted:

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) -- Don Gorske plans to eat his 25,000th Big Mac on the 39th anniversary of eating his first.

A special ceremony is planned at McDonald's in Fond du Lac Tuesday afternoon.

The 57-year-old Fond du Lac man says he ate nine on May 17, 1972 and has only missed nine days since then, for various reasons.  He usually eats two a day.  He has kept most of the boxes or receipts or has made specific notes in calendars that he's kept.

Gorske says he probably has an obsessive-compulsive disorder but he doesn't consider it a problem.

He jokes that 25,000 is a milestone because people didn't think he'd live this long.  But he says he recently saw a doctor who said he was in good health and his cholesterol is low.
