Will one be wanting fries with that?

This is obviously fake. For a start, the smoothness of the arms don't match the age of the face. And then there's the more obvious clue. Still, I thought it was amusing.

I think it first appeared a month ago on the b3ta message boards.

That does look like my Lizzy too! This photo likely IS a fake but in my area - our McPuke's hire older people, single moms and seniors to handle the shops during the day when the youngin's are in school. I've seen people who are *almost* old enough to be Wallyworld greeters in our busiest branches during the day shifts.. The local McDs reps say its to help promote growth and employment within the community...

That was the more obvious clue!

Old people tend to be on a fixed income and have a need to take any job which will hire them to supplement it.

Hulli, have you turned into a Canadian, given that you say THE Queen rather than the British Queen...? 😉

Well, We are not amused...

I thought the more obvious clue was that the signs behind her seem to be in Japanese....

But then as an American I don't really recognize the British Queen on sight.

Even as an American, I do recognize the Queen on sight, but I was more amused by the signage. I didn't notice that until you pointed it out, Mimzy.

I've seen several other (less well done) pictures of her related to McDonald's, too. They seem to be a result of <a >this bit of news</a>.

Great Scot! I spend two weeks in the States and they abolish the monarchy while my back is turned! To think that our poor Lizzie is reduced to this....
Er...while you're at it, I'll have a milk shake too.

I believe it came from Worth1000's "Celebrity Day Jobs" monthly photoshop contest.

Perhaps Queen Elizabeth was there to deliver a fryer-side chat.

Oh, come on. That was funny!
