Mickey D's

noun derivation
slang for the fast food chain McDonald's. Mickey D's has essentially the same meaning as McDonald's, but is often said in a more joking or humorous way. I think the term was formed because McDonald's has become such a big part of American culture that people have started giving it affectionate nicknames, but in a sarcastic way.
 
We were hungry at 3:00 this morning, so we went to Mickey D's for Big Mac's.
Etymology : derived from McDonald's, a fast food chain.
