Retired prison officer Don Gorske - who achieved the landmark feat in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin - is tremendously proud of his jaw-dropping accomplishment, which has seen him hailed as a ''Big Mac maniac''.

The Fond du Lac Reporter quoted Don as saying that he'd been ''looking forward to'' the milestone burger.

Gorske also made an appearance in the well-known documentary 'Supersize Me'.

At the time, he explained to the cameras: ''As soon as I got my first car, this is the first place I came to.

''The first day I came here I ate nine Big Macs. It was like I couldn't get enough hamburger at that time.''
