If you attempt to eat a Big Mac every single day for half a century, it's pretty reasonable to assume you would die. That's just a perfectly rational conclusion. Few people would dispute it.
But this guy has done just that—ate a Big Mac every day for 50 years—and he's not only surviving, he's thriving! I mean, sort of.
Here's a whopper of a tale. Everyone knows what goes into a Big Mac from that catchy jingle from the '70s ... but only one man can claim a Big Mac has gone into his stomach every single day for the past 50 years!!!
Don Gorske -- a 68-year-old man from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin -- has been lovin' the double-decker burger creation from Mickey D's ever since May 17, 1972, when he sank his teeth into his first Big Mac ... and he's never looked back.
The man is an absolute machine.
You may remember him from this article last year:
He also appeared in the 2004 documentary "Supersize Me," where his kids and his wife, a nurse practitioner, laughed at his quirky habit.
Every day for 50 years he has done this:
Most of us would quickly grow tired of this routine. Many of us would get sick from it. A fair number would—as we noted above—die. But not ol' Don Gorske.
Like so many men, Gorske's valorous hero streak was brought about by the horrors of war:
"I thought I was going to get drafted for the Vietnam War, you know. So I thought, 'Well, at least I'll eat em every day until I get drafted or whatever.' And then when I didn't get drafted, it just kept going."
As you can see, the man has his own dedicated booth in his preferred McDonald's (note the Gorske print above the table). The demarcation was a gift from the manager for the spot's personal significance to the Big Mac-chomping legend:
Hats off to you, Mr. Gorske, for following your dreams!
