    I thought someone would like the weirdness of seeing Burger King called Hungry Jacks. Burger King had to call it Hungry Jacks in Australia because I think we already had a Burger King or something like that...

    Yep, that's right. The Burger King trade mark was already owned by another company in Australia, so the franchise in Australia was called Hungry Jack's (owned by Jack Cowin).

    Burger King tried to enter Australia when the Burger King TM expired (for a while we had both Hungry Jack's and Burger King stores) but lost in a legal dispute with Hungry Jack's. We now have Hungry Jack's stores only.

    Apparently their most valuable resource doesn’t understand the concept of height.

    It’s the height of irony.
