As the Fond du Lac Reporter reports, Don Gorske ate his first Big Mac in 1972 at the same McDonald's where he chowed down his 30,000th, and he's only missed about eight days in between. And that in turn would work out to consuming 1.786 Big Macs every single day since the Nixon administration.

"You can't take Big Macs in front of the inmates", he said. That includes a 1982 day in which a snowstorm shut down the restaurant, as well as the day his mom died in 1998.

Don Gorske has eaten a Big Mac almost every day since May 1972.

Gorske, who has thousands of Big Mac cartons in his home, said several people have suggested he suffers from a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Like numerous speakers, de Baca had a message for Reynolds and the Republicans who passed the law: "We will see you in court". Reynolds signed the bill at the governor's office at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines.

Don Gorske is tall and thin with a graying ponytail. In 2006, he crossed the finish line of the San Diego marathon with his 21,387th Big Mac in hand.

Gorske has appeared on the "Rachael Ray Show", "Jimmy Kimmel", "Lopez Tonight", "I've Got a Secret", "Oprah" and "Inside Edition".

The Wisconsin man celebrated his achievement at the McDonald's on Military Road in Fond Du Lac. He also was featured in the movie "Supersize Me". He gave them a half-hour presentation before taking that record-breaking bite into two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, and onions on a sesame seed bun.
