    I guess it's because 'quarter pounder' is such a recognizable phrase.


    p.s.
    something about the ad being targeted towards australians makes me really not want that burger...

    Because it's not really a half pound. With a quarter pounder, that is the weight of the patty before cooking. With 2 quarter pound patties, after cooking it is even further from the "quarter pound" patty statement, let alone a half pound.
