2001-11-10 12:05:06 AM  
Fark, that's sickening.
2001-11-10 12:06:52 AM  
wow, this guy isn't as big as i thought he'd be. but i'm sure he'll be having a few heart problems soon enough...

14 cows? Anyone else get kind of grossed out when the break the food down by animal. Ewww...I'm eating GROUND BEEF, not COW! My food is completely unrelated to COW, it's farking GROUND BEEF.

It just makes me feel less ill that way.

Thise doesn't seem like to much of a followup, 'cept for that bit about having 265 bigmac containers in his car.

What the hell, wouldn't you sort of notice the smell...I mean c'mon. There has to be some residual pieces of lettuce and stuff x 265 = some serious funk. I think the other article he was in said that his cholesteral was normal or low...considering he doesn't eat any other meal during the day except for his big mac at dinner.

Weird and gross.

strange.... i live in maine....
i think my local paper is stealing from others

175 pounds? Christ, how often must he shiat? I know a guy who's been eating nothing but hamburgers for the last decade, and the only garment that he can wear is a tarp with some holes punched in it.

"I'm so excited to have my first car ! I think I'll go eat 3 Big Macs and THROW THE EMPTY BOXES IN THE BACK SEAT !"
What a farking freak !

Willy: If I ate MickyD's everyday, I think I would forego the toilet and just get the whole colostomy bag setup.

I wonder if he drinks beer. That would be a double wammy assault on the gut.

McDonald's makes my intestines shudder.
2001-11-10 01:00:11 AM  
How do you eat that much carby, fatty, bad-for-you crap and not be a total tub? Please, Big Mac Man, tell me your secret!
2001-11-10 01:00:14 AM  
I am trying to figure out how they got 14 cows. Isn't McDonalds hamburgers mostly soy?
2001-11-10 01:00:21 AM  
Gimme some cow man!!!!!!!!!!

nine a day? damn...

i can't imagine- now that i'm 20-something i can't even eat mcdonald's. now, dave thomas still rings my bell, but mcd's is baaaad.
2001-11-10 01:17:58 AM  
Poorly written article, but it sounds like he's gone through 29 cows by now. 14 1/2 cows from 1972 - 1987 (if he's kept the same pace since 1987)
2001-11-10 01:20:44 AM  
Just adds more fuel to my theory that high school teachers are complete freaks....
2001-11-10 01:22:34 AM  
Nasty. The end.

McDonalds will KILL you.
2001-11-10 01:37:38 AM  
Okay, at 9 Big Macs a day, that's 5310 calories (I did it in my head, leave me alone if it's wrong) not counting any other food he consumed! What kind of exercise program was/is he on?

My husband has suggested he's either on meth or has a tapeworm.
2001-11-10 01:43:43 AM  
FYI McDonald's food will turn you in to a mullet wearing freak!
2001-11-10 01:46:28 AM  
odlid, your wife is good lookin'

2001-11-10 03:08:45 AM  
Specially special sauce..does it everytime.
This guy must have some metabolism. To think we human animals are the only organisms who cook their foood.

Ok, im off to get 5 McRibs and a 1/4 lb.-er super size meal.
2001-11-10 03:16:49 AM  
How long do you think it will be, before the national class action lawsuit against McDonalds for causing heart disease without a warning label.

I mean heck it was good enough for the "evil" (I never new that inhaling smoke into my lungs for 40 years would kill me.) tobbacco companies.
2001-11-10 04:33:53 AM  
UGH! If you are going to be a glutton at least have some taste, or have the sense not to tell people what you are doing and make yourself look like a joke.

MajorBurns: It's an Associated Press story.
2001-11-10 08:36:45 AM  
How is this dumb@ss getting so much press? McD PR?

...oh, and whoever said in the earlier thread that"100 gallons of special sauce" sounds like bukkake -- that still cracks me up!

Notice how McDonalds is not exactly embracing this guy like Subway did the dude who lost all that weight on their veggie sandwiches. Maybe it has something to do with the Big Mac guy being completely off his rocker and the Subway guy just being a formally fat geek with little imagination.

Something tells me the next follow-up on Big Mac guy will be a story about how his trailer is filled with dozens of cats and dogs and their associated filth. Sheesh.
2001-11-10 11:38:02 AM  
That was one of the most poorly written articles ever. Do we really need to be told that he started in 72 when he got his first car...TWICE? ugh...stupidity.
2001-11-10 12:23:58 PM  
MajorBurns is a Mainah!

2001-11-10 01:45:58 PM  
Is this the same guy in those White Castle commercials
who throws all the empty containers in the back seat
and then goes to the car wash?

Big Mac = all four food groups represented!

-he who makes fat stacks on the corner
2001-11-10 06:31:25 PM  
"...and 100 gallons of special sauce."

I got your 100 gallons of special sauce riiiight here...

(did i just say that?)

2001-11-10 07:12:02 PM  
Yeah!!! I'm only 15 minutes from this guy, i should take a hint from him or something.


(no not really, cuz otherwise, i'd be like, on jerry springer, like, as the 20983472380987432 pound man.)
2001-11-10 08:32:03 PM  
He should be turning into a Big Mac pretty soon.
2001-11-12 05:01:56 PM  
Ok, remember the story about the chicken head found amongst the chicken nuggets? Well, what whould happen if this guy found a Cow head?? AAAHHHHHHH!!!!

It would bite at him and say "damn you, you ate my mother's toe"!!!
