Out of all the hills to die on, this one has to come with the worst heartburn. Wisconsin resident Donald Gorske currently holds the Guinness World Record for most Big Macs ever consumed. At over 32,000 burgers, I don’t see anyone claiming his throne anytime soon. Gorske’s passion for the BM began in May of 1972 when he ordered three Big Macs for lunch, which spurred him into ordering four more later that day. Consuming at least one every day, Gorske claims the McDonalds specialty makes up 90-95% of his diet. It’s a miracle this guy is still standing.
I can’t tell if Don is a hero or an absolute madman. I mean, the dude’s in pretty good shape for over 30,000 burgers. If being a Big Mac masochist comes with luscious locks and a loving wife, then I’m totally in. But then again, what does consuming the exact same food every day do to one’s body and soul? Turning yourself into a fast-food farm animal cant come without its consequences. I’m sure the daily frozen beef/Coca-Cola combo has done a number on Don’s bowels, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s replaced his toilet once or twice.
You may not agree with the man’s choices, but you can’t say he doesn’t have drip. The bowl cut in the front, paired with the ponytail and an excellent set of sideburns tells you all you need to know about Don Gorske. This guy doesn’t care to mix it up, and he’s probably been rocking the same style since becoming a world record holder. I think there’s an important lesson in Don’s story. If you like doing something, keep doing that thing. Don’t listen to the haters or the FDA. Feed the capitalist machine and break records while you’re at it. You go, Gorske. Make Ronald McDonald proud.
