MaccyD's is full of crap. No-one, and I mean no-one, calls 1 pound a bob.

A bob = 1 shilling/5 pence, a quid = 1 pound. Everyone should know that.

It's very rare that I have McDonalds these days. I've never given much thought to how much a bob was, I assumed it to be a generic amount of money :logical:

In defence/defense of the US, it should be pointed out that marketing types are ninnies no matter which country they evolve in. Picture Alistair Deacon from "As Time Goes By," only with an Oklahoman accent. Put him in the same room with a production chief who gives him thirty seconds to concoct something on the spot and, shilling's your uncle, that's how it happens. How else can you explain a food company trying to market biscuits by calling them Digestives?
