McDonald's have finally reopened their restaurants in France and their customers, who have been deprived of the greasy goodness for several weeks now, have been seen queueing for hours to get their hands on a beloved Big Mac.
Can't really blame them, can you?

A world without McDonald's is a world not worth thinking about.

What's not to love about McDonald's?
via: ShutterstockThe burgers, the fries, the milkshakes... Just everything about the fast-food restaurant is incredible. McDonald's - we love you.
But, in the last couple of months...A medical pandemic has brought our love for McDonald's to a temporary standstill.
Countries all over the world have been brought to a halt.
via: GettyIn an attempt to combat the deadly virus, various world leaders have imposed lockdowns upon their countries, thus closing all shops, bars, and restaurants.
And, devastatingly, many McDonald's restaurants are amongst those who have been forced to close their doors.
via: GettyFor the first time ever, McDonald's infamous deep fat fryers have been switched off, leaving millions of Big Mac lovers well, Big Mac-less.
Luckily for us here in the States, our restaurants haven't been affected.
via: GettyAmerican McDonald's restaurants remain well and truly open, despite the growing number of virus cases and deaths. We really will do anything for a cheeseburger, won't we?
But the rest of the world, sadly, can't relate.
via: GettyOther (arguably more sensible) countries have had to ride out the pandemic without that much-needed fast food fix.
It sounds completely horrific, doesn't it?
via: GettyI personally can't even imagine an existence without McDonald's.
People have had to make do with their own cooking...Though this has proven to be too depressing for most, so many have been attempting their own "homemade McDonald's" in the absence of the real McDonald's.
And some of them actually look edible!

But, for some lucky customers, this living hell may just be over.
via: GettyAs France begins the slow process of lifting its lockdown, a select number of their McDonald's restaurants have been gradually reopening their doors. Hallelujah!
But, there's a catch.
via: GettyUpon reopening their doors, French McDonald's restaurants have been swamped by hundreds of customers eager for their fast-food fix.
The scenes have been ridiculous.
via: GettyCars can be seen completely gridlocked in huge traffic jams as people frantically rush to their nearest restaurant.
And, reportedly, some people even queued for 3 hours.
via: GettyThey must really be lovin' it. (I'm sorry, I had to...)
