Supersized? Me?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all in favour of McDonald's removing super-sized meals. But really, why was anyone surprised by the creeping increase in portion size in the first place? This is a chain whose signature burger is called a Big Mac. (Incidentally, the Big Mac's the worst of their burgers.) And Burger King's is the Whopper. Are people surprised that the fries and Coke expanded accordingly? Now that they're downsizing portions, does that mean we'll see the Adequate Mac and the Whoppling? (Whoppling? Whippet? Whopplet?)
