Lindsay Lohan and her family’s troubled, rather unfortunate and, yes, even a bit ludicrous saga continues. LiLo’s frumpy, nearly unrecognizable, appearance at the amfAR AIDS charity gala in New York City certainly takes top billing. But her dad, Michael Lohan, is also stealing some of that silly, almost rather sad, spotlight with the news of his latest “real” job: flipping hamburger patties and manning the French fry station at Burger King, of all places.
According to the Daily Mail, the 51-year-old put in his application at the Palm Beach, Florida location of the popular fast food joint. He even got into the true spirit of the place by wearing a BK crown when he submitted his application. Wow, talk about worker enthusiasm.
A “job,” even one at a greasy spoon, was part of his plea deal in the domestic violence case last year, which involved his ex-fiance Kate Major, as Daily Mail confirms. It seems Michael could have done a bit better than Burger King, which pays a whopping $7.75 per hour.
But apparently his rehab counselors suggested this particular occupation as one that would be beneficial for him to pass his idle time and to “assimilate back into society.” Well, they might have a point, given society seems rather consumed with fast food! Just as long as Michael doesn’t eat too many value meals while he’s on or off the clock, or he’ll have more weighty issues with which to deal.
But what a shock some BK customers might get when they pull up to the drive-thru window and see Lindsay Lohan’s father staring back at them! And what would LiLo think about this whole deep-fried situation?!
