Australian-only nickname? Why have I seen it in TV ads here in NZ then?

I was tempted to comment with the same thing, maccas is it's name colloquially in NZ, both in ads and spoken in conversation.

Typical Australian baby-talk. In context it is OK, but for thinking adults it sticks in the craw a bit.

Maybe we should contact McDonalds head office or who ever is handling the promotion and advise we have been calling it that for ages. :D

Got to watch what I say. No. 2 SWMBO married an Aussie surfer boy from Dee Why ln '11. We do have some interesting discussions. :-) Best one was about how Robbie Deans was going to take the wobbablies to victory in the world rugby cup.

Who cares who said it first, they are welcome to it, in my opinion it (Maccas) sounds idiotic. I hate it almost as much as I hate McCholesterol itself. :lol:
