You might remember Gorske from Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me, where he revealed that he has eaten about two Big Macs a day since he was 17. The local news outlet from his native Wisconsin had Gorske admitting that he's probably got an obsessive-compulsive disorder. But hey, his cholesterol level is surprisingly low.
The McDonald's corporation responded to the news with this statement: "We're honored that Don Gorske continues to be a longtime, loyal customer. We look forward to serving him for many years to come."
Serving him? How's about giving him the mascot job?
