Fries with that, Mr. Trudeau? PM stops in for surprise McDonald's lunch

Who knew the day shift at McDonald's could be so exciting?

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a pit stop for lunch Saturday at the Whitby Mall McDonald's, about 45 minutes east of downtown Toronto.

The unannounced visit caught a lot of McDonald's staffers off-guard, like 16-year-old student Dominic Morales, who was on his break when the prime minister dropped in.

"I heard like a lot of screaming coming from our co-workers," Morales told CBC News, soon realizing who had walked in. "[I was] like 'Was he here for an event or whatever?' And then it just turns out he was just ordering food, like a normal person."

"I don't really delve into a lot of what the prime minister does. I think he'd go to a higher class place I like he went for just a casual McDonald's, you know, he was kind of like one of us."

Morales shot a video of his co-workers soon after the prime minister left, giddy with excitement about their brush with the politician.

When Harper went to a Timmy's that was bad .... when Trudeau goes to a Rotten Ronnies that is good. Got to keep the talking points straight. Flossy, do you have a rolodex or something to help?

Rolodex? Seriously?

Yeah, he keeps it next to his slide rule.

There probably is an app for that.

Well of course. When Trudeau goes to a McD's he's demonstrating how in touch he is with us peons. When Harper goes to Timmies, it's obviously just a cheap ploy.

Kid has a purple one on.

The question I have to ask is while enjoying such a peaceful activity on the water why are there:
1) no ripples from the paddles or canoe moving in the water?
2) a convenient photographer at just the perfect distance to take a selfie?

Who's the kid waving to? I'm thinking there's a couple of boats - or one 'L'-shaped dock

He wanted an Angus Burger but had to settle for a Happy Meal, because he's just not ready.

ou got me on the life jacket on the kid, looks a lot like windbreaker, but I'm sure you are right.
I do see paddle ripples though

You see one in exactly the configuration if somebody had perhaps yelled "Hey Justin, put your paddle in the water to make it seem like you are moving". If he was paddling, the pattern would be different and the canoe would be making a ripple too.

It is a lovely picture though. The artist/photographer should be commended.
