Don Gorske Really, Really Likes Big Macs


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Don Gorske attended a ceremony at McDonald's in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. The retired prison guard was featured in the anti-fast food documentary "Super Size Me," though he's not anti-fast food. For decades he's been tracking how many Big Macs he eats. He ate the first in 1972, and at the ceremony he ate number 25,000. Gorske says according to his doctor he's healthy, except maybe with an obsessive compulsive disorder.
