Richmond, BC, June 21, 2009

Most likely meaning: hiring staff for the midnight to 8:00 AM shift, which is also known as, "the graveyard shift."

However, isn't there something unsettling about the word, graveyard, appearing on a restaurant sign.
Does McDonaldland have a graveyard? Is this ad really for a McUndertaker? ;-)

The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power,
And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave,
Awaits alike th' inevitable hour:-
The paths of glory lead but to the grave.

The paths of most things lead to the grave, but some things, like greasy fast food, will get you there faster.
