"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.
