-His record started on the day he got his first car.
-Don Gorske’s record began on May 17, 1972 when he ordered his first 3 Big Macs.
“I drove straight to McDonald’s, got my first three Big Macs, then got in the car and ate them. In that moment I said ‘I’m going to probably eat these for the rest of my life’. I threw the boxes onto the back seat, and started counting them from day one.”
