>Special sauce, anyone?? You may have read this week that a Wisconsin man recently consumed his 25,000th Big Mac. In the process, this guy ingested close to 12 million (MILLION) calories and enough grams of fat to grease Clark Griswold’s saucer sled for an eternity.
Now that I’m officially more than a little grossed out, the real question is how the hell does he know he ate that many? And how does he not get tired of eating the same thing every day?
I don’t know about you, but if I eat the same thing more than, say, three days in a row I get really tired of it. He ate Big Macs every day for 29 years! I think I’d rather gouge my eyeballs out with a spork than eat the same thing every day for most of my life.
Seriously, though, I am curious as to how he kept track of how many burgers he ate. Did he keep the wrappers to all 25,000? Did he use Excel? Was Excel even around 29 years ago? Did he scratch tick marks into his wall?
We all have hobbies and “things” that we do. This guy’s is obviously eating at McDonalds. I can’t say that I have “one” thing that is all consuming – but I do have several hobbies. For instance, I love music. I have over 1500 songs on my iPod right now. Double that on my computer. I listen to all types. Goes back to my days of being a DJ in college, I suppose.
What is your “obsession” – Big Macs? Chick fil-A nuggets? Something else?
