The Wilt Chamberlain of Big Macs

A 57 year old, retired prison guard from Wisconsin named Don Gorske ate his record 25,000th Big Mac yesterday, as you can read HERE. The fact that he'd eaten Big Macs every single day for 39 years was amazing enough.  Even more startling is that he's not fat.  (There's a photo in this article.) In fact, he's pretty trim. 

But what I found even more noteworthy is that he only entered the Guinness World Records after having eaten his 23,000th Big Mac two years ago, apparently; implying that someone else must've previously eaten Big Macs every single day for 40 years as well.

I also thought it was interesting that in 39 years (over 14,000 days) he's only gone 8 days without eating at least one Big Mac. And one of those days (only one day!) was to grant his mother's dying wish.
