It has been 39 years to the day since Don Gorske ate his first nine. At a ceremony in his honour at a McDonalds in his hometown of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, he said he would continue to eat Big Macs until I die. Mr Gorske, 57, appeared in the 2004 documentary film Super Size Me, which looks at the impact of a daily diet of McDonalds food. He is thin and his cholesterol is said to be low. When I was 19 years old I had eaten my first 1,000 Big Macs and I was kind of like, I thought how long before I hit 10,000? he said before eating the world record 25,000th burger on Tuesday. Then it was like boy, by the time I hit 25,000 I will be old and retired. BBC
