How's it goin', citizens? Stevie Harper - Cdn PM & austerity penny-pincher here.
In the interest of saving taxpayer loonies, we privatized birth-centres outside of regular hospitals.
Soon you'll be able to squat out your spawn and enjoy a double-double & cruller.
Roll up the rim (& birthing moo-moo) to win!

Just curious if the subby realizes that Windsor *is* in Ontario.

I call BS, the article didn't mention one cop being there. No way this happened at a donut shop!

Maybe the truck overshot Windsor and went to Detroit - and somehow survived the shootings & fires?

I'm disappointed it was in Canada. Anywhere else and I could have made a dual citizenship joke.

Yes, I'm from BC, not a rock in a cave on Mars. They parbake all the donuts in Brantford, Ontario and truck them all over the country so they're all the same. If I'd said "Brantford" then the headline wouldn't have made any sense to Americans.

There are something like 500 Timmies locations in the US.

Do you know whether their doughnuts are also shipped from Brantford, or does the company have a separate commissary in the US?

No, it doesn't make any sense at all. You can't truck something from Brantford to Ontario because at the start the thing is already in Ontario, so the journey is nonsensical. Would you drive from Whistler to British Columbia? Well maybe you would if you'd been smoking a lot of pot, which you likely do since you live in BC.

On a few occasions I've got a cheese croissant at hortons and it's freshly baked and still warm. What is brought in frozen and what isn't I wonder?

Everything is parbaked.

What that means is that they do most of the baking in Brantford. At the local stores, they take the frozen goods and put them into a simplified baking process to put the final touches on. In all fairness, it allows for much easier baking, reduced spoilage, lower contaminants, and hardly anybody can tell the difference. They are, technically, baked fresh on site. They just aren't baked completely on site.

Look up "parbaking" on wikipedia.

Oh man, the three weeks I spent driving from Whistler to BC were awesome. It was like the time I went camping up at the potholes, I biked all day to get there and when I got there it was like, whoa, I'm already here. How did that happen? And there was a red fence that wouldn't let us go any further because they were afraid we'd poison the water, and I was like man, how dirty do you think I am, but it was just a fence.

Does anyone have any doritos? Any chips at all? What about cookies?

Okay, you know what? I have to go to Thrifty Foods right now.

Luvs mah Timmies double double!

Actually, I don't get the hate. It's not gourmet friggin coffee, it's great "junk food" coffee. I mean, that's like saying I hate Tim's because I drink Jamaican Blue once in a while. I love Jamaican Blue, but that's a different thing.

You can love filet mignon and enjoy good fast food.
