    Apple should make a big screen smart TV/PC and call it The Big Mac... :cool:

    Nah they'd rather get triggered and call someone else dishonest, while they keep serving Big Macs that are half the size they used to be and twice the price.

    Fucken mutts.

    McDonald's now need to prove beyond reasonable doubt that their customers are stupid enough to mistake the word Jack for the word Mac

    (remembering the old, Subaru, BMW, Porsche, Aston, Bentley ad campaign form the dawn of the internet)

    yeah, could've been some fun, and everyone (Except the lawyers) would win. Now the only winners are the lawyers.

    While I agree with the sentiment, if they are protecting their trademark then they must aggressively protect it or someone may determine in the future that it is deemed to have lapsed. These kind of situations often turn into a shitfest of rich lawyers as cvidler mentioned.
    Wouldn't it be a civil proceeding? That is on the balance of probabilities.

    At least Jacks actually put lettuce and tomato in their burgers. I had a double quarter pounder the other day, bread + patty + bread + some extremely tiny smattering of their mayo + two tiny slices of pickles + patty + bread.

    Most incredibly un-inventive and boring burger I've ever had.

    I felt the big jack was underwhelming (but much larger than a bigmac) and the mega jack overwhelming.

    I'd stick with regular whopper with cheese.

    I thought the Mega Jack was pretty bland which is on par with the Big Mac.

    I've personally never tasted a wet dishcloth.
