Will The Big Mac Follow Moore's Law?

This isn't new but is sort of funny in a "does this milk smell funny to you" sort of way. From The Calorie Lab, "From Big Mac to Chici Mac: The future of fast food":

"In January 2002, years before the Mega Mac introduction, Takeshi Fukuda and his friends presciently speculated on what MacDonald’s Japan may have up its sleeves for the future. As they added beef patties they eventually ran out of mathematical prefixes and began to resort to Marx Brothers references."

Original blog post by Takeshi Fukuda in Japanese.

So the question is, does the evolution of the Big Mac to Mega Mac to Tera Mac to Yotta Mac follow an 18-month time period for each burger doubling?
