25,000 Big Macs

Some guy in the US who looks like he has a body like a half sucked throatie ate his 25,000th Big Mac yesterday. The media are in a frenzy.

I can’t see why. It took him 39 years.

A retired Wisconsin prison guard ate his 25,000th Big Mac yesterday, 39 years to the day after eating his first … nine.

Don Gorske was “honoured” after reaching the meaty milestone during a ceremony at a McDonald’s in his hometown of Fond du Lac. Surely McDonald’s most loyal customer, Guinness World Records recognised Gorske’s feat three years and 2000 Big Macs ago, and the 57-year-old says he has no desire to stop.

“I plan on eating Big Macs until I die,” he said.

Parekura Horomia would have scoffed that many in the space of one Hikoi up Queen Street.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
