    A true American hero? :)



    Man says he's eaten 23,000 Big Macs since 1972

    FOND DU LAC, Wis. - A 54-year-old man says his obsessive-compulsive disorder drove him to eat 23,000 Big Macs in 36 years. Fifty-four-year-old Don Gorske says he hit the milestone last month, continuing a pleasurable obsession that began May 17, 1972 when he got his first car.

    Gorske has kept every burger receipt in a box. He says he was always fascinated with numbers, and watching McDonald's track its number of customers motivated him to track his own consumption.
    The only day he skipped a Big Mac was the day his mother died, to respect her request.
    The correctional-institution employee says he doesn't care when people call his Big Mac obsession crazy. He says he's in love with the burgers, which are the highlights of his days

    What size box do you need to hold 23,000 McDonald's receipts?

    Yea, I thought saving them was odd...and it's an everyday thing, too.

    If he makes it to 75, I might go on the Mac diet, too...more so than I do now. ;)

    According to my calculations, that's just one or two burgers a day.
    For the first second while reading the title I thought that's about 5 a day!
    Well, that's not that much...one or two. I can say many people eat a burger a day, just nobody counts;)
