Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese ...
Take this Morgan Spurlock:
"A 54-year-old man says his obsessive-compulsive disorder drove him to eat 23,000 Big Macs in 36 years. Fifty-four-year-old Don Gorske says he hit the milestone last month, continuing a pleasurable obsession that began May 17, 1972 when he got his first car.
"Gorske has kept every burger receipt in a box. He says he was always fascinated with numbers, and watching McDonald's track its number of customers motivated him to track his own consumption.
"The only day he skipped a Big Mac was the day his mother died, to respect her request.
"The correctional-institution employee says he doesn't care when people call his Big Mac obsession crazy. He says he's in love with the burgers, which are the highlights of his days."
You'd think that Mr. Gorske is a big, fat tub, right? Wrong. He's a tall feller who looks like he's not carrying a single extra pound. Kinda kicks Spurlock's "super size" theory right in the groin, n'est-ce pas?
