Timmy's coffee is serious business!

I came in here to say that, PenguinCam. Serious.

If you live for a certain brand of coffee's yearly contest and get pissed when something seems not right, you need to die.

these companies don't need to offer us prizes.

I wish Timmy's would open up some locations here in NYC. I miss their crackcoffee.

Don't forget the Gerda Munsinger affair back in 1958. She slept with most of The Chief's cabinet. One sexual related government affiar every 50 or so years is pretty good for Canada. And then Trudeau slept with lots of chippies, but then the media covered for him like they did for Kennedy.

Seriously guys, you have no idea. If this was a Canadian website, this would be a newsflash. People live and die by roll up the rim. It's quite sad actually.

just burn yourself with the coffee. thats the best way to get free stuff.

In fact it's one way to test if a tourist really is a Canuck, as they claim to be. Just say to them, rolling your R's, "Roll up the..." and see if they jump in with "...rim to win!"

Good enough for Kandahar, good enough for Vancouver. About 25 or so locations.

They can complain about this but remember that it actually happened with McDonalds Monopoly a while back. People at the company that made the game pieces kept all the good ones.

"as all major prize cups (i.e. car, boat, GPS, $50 Tim Card) are inspected by hand before distribution into the contest."

That will not happen. You see, like nicotine, caffeine is addictive. Scientists have linked smoking and chewing tobacco to various mouth, throat, and lung cancers. Cigarettes and Cigars contain tobacco and tobacco contains nicotine. People still smoke and chew tobacco. It would essentially be the same thing.

/Going to get my brain cancer caffeine in the form of coffee.

Salieri_82: Second Cup > Tim Hortons

/Joins ArkAngel in the bunker.


No. Second Cup is just imitation Starbucks.

And this shiat is total shenanigans. Maybe it's a problem with Nova Scotian Timmy's employees farking with the cups, but in Ontario, during the rollup contests, drinking two coffees a day I managed to score about 2 free coffees a week. And that's been my experience over the last 5 or so years.

Don't fark with Timmys coffee. It's Canadian crack in a cup. You Starbucks and Second Cup types can keep your espresso-and-chocolate based desserts. For a Canadian, COFFEE comes in a paper cup, with a rim you can roll up, and it is ordered "double double".
 
2008-03-21 12:54:34 PM  
"Because of this minor issue, customers may have obtained a cup that appears to be rolled up or puckered along the rim.

Um, thats not a cup your drinking from.
 
2008-03-21 12:55:26 PM  
On my first day off since christmas. I won a free coffee on roll up. I was hoping for a big screen TV, i'm a little behind the times. Timmies is a life changing experience.

The dude complaining probably had helicopter parents, who taught him that their precious little snowflake gets whatever he wants, which is totally why he's biatching and moaning in the paper about not winning in a coffee cup contest (at a store that doesn't owe him shiat) - next he'll whine about the guy at the corner store rigging all the scratch lottery tickets by taking all the winners out.

/4 free coffees, a donut and a muffin.
//large double-double ftw.
 
2008-03-21 01:21:47 PM  
Ehh, this shiat happens every year... there's always at least one douchebag who thinks the winning entry is on the other side of the cup from where the arrow points, or they deserve the car because the person they let in front of them won, or the employees are stealing the winning cups, or there are no winning cups in circulation... what's with the sense of entitlement?

The cups are randomly distributed. A huge company like Tim Hortons wouldn't risk messing with the contest, it's already crazy enough they don't have to make you do a skill-testing question as per federal law... good thing too cause I bet that O'Brien cat would have trouble. Shut up and drink your f*ckin coffee.
 
2008-03-21 01:26:54 PM  
There are some people at work that come in with about 3 or 4 xtra large takeouts to last a 12 hour shift. I don't like timmies at the best of times. I can't imagine what that shiat taste like after its been microwaved.

/Robins donuts FTW

Stephen Harper and Donna Cadman will be happy to know our attention has been directed to Tim Hortons employees. The current political scandal in Canada looks like this...

Liberal Party MPs are speculating in the media that it seems like part of Chuck Cadman's bribe to vote down the government (old news from 2005) was to let his wife run for his seat under the PC banner. How do you get a dying man to bring down the government in a vote? Promise that his wife will get to be an MP.

In response to this kind of tinfoil hat accusation from the Liberal Party, the prime Minister himself is suing the Liberal party for $2.5 million.

Watergate indeed!
