Tim Horton's

So Timmies has gone public, and as a staple of the Canadian diet, it has also become a staple of the Canadian news.

I got interviewed at lunch by CBC for some daily radio program about the sale. Hopefully I gave them a good sound bite.

Person: "What would do if you couldn't get your Tim Horton's?"
Me: "Riot " (alas that neither broadcasts nor blogs as well as in person, wish it was for the evening news instead.)

There was a interesting article on the Toronto Star webpage yesterday about Tim Horton's and its role in Canadian Pop culture and why we identify the american owned chain as being as canadian as hockey and mounties and beavers.

I counted over 120 Tim Horton's cups on the side of the street as I walked to work this morning. That's only twenty minutes...

Is it litter, or free advertising? Who knows; all I know is that it was disgusting. Maybe that is what the riot should be about...
