How to get a job at McDonalds if you are over qualified?

My friend and I decided to both get jobs at McDonald's (or the BK Lounge,lol). We are doing this entirely for the fun of it and we are not planning on lasting longer then 2-3 days at the job MAX. He wants to write a paper on minimum wage labor and at the same time so we can act like complete degenerates. The problem is we are both way over qualified. I am 23 and he is 25. I have a BS in economics and pursuing my Masters at the moment. He is an undergrad in finance and completing his Juries Doctorate degree. I am currently running my own brokerage company and he works part time at a consulting firm. We need a GREAT back story as to why we are looking for jobs at McDonald's and we have to work the same schedule so we also need a great excuse for that. Our plan was to buy a couple of 80's suits from thrift shops and say that we just got our GED but I figured I would get others opinions and maybe you can come up for a better back story for us. Majority of this will be filmed through pin hole cameras or discreet friends at the restaurant. Yes, ofcourse we will have to lie on the application but we also need a great back story for the interview process. Ok, first of all, I don't feel bad costing money to such a major corporation such as Mc.Donalds which realistically is in real estate business to begin with. Considering that the corporation owns all of the land that their restaurants are built on, even the ones that are being franchised so I think they will be all right financially speaking. Second, being broke is a Choice. I left my parents house at the age of 17 with NO financial support and with $300 in my pocket (which I worked for) and a back pack full of clothes so please don't try to guilt trip me. RE: After (Silly) addition The idea is not to "stick it" to corporate or to minimize anyone's profits should the restaurant be corporate or franchised. McDonald's will not have some trainer fly out from their corporate headquarters to "train us", more then likely we will have one of the hourly employees train us or at best it will be a salaried assistant manager and lets face it besides the lousy paycheck that we will receive (will be donated to some charity anyways) we are really not taking food from anyone's mouth so the company's expense intrainingg us will be minimal at best. Also, with the over turn rate being over 80% for hourly employees I am sure the company takes precautions as to how they go about "training" their new employees. I really hope that you are just playing devil's advocate on this one. Perhaps I should have asked "How can a stay at home dad get a job at McDonald's?" Never have I stated that my project was innocent in any way. I was fortunate enough to never have to work a minimum wage job even in my original post I mentioned that we are not going to last more then 2-3 days but your guilt trip nonsense about "ripping off the company" is ridiculous. Again go look into McDonald's hourly employee statistics and then you come back here and preach to me about how I am "stealing" from the poor, old Ronald
