Nothing beats Tim in UCC war
I always thought I was a special lil' kid.
I could perform a left-handed lay-up when I was in Grade 3.
Some WNBA players still can't do that.
I could mash the buttons faster than all my friends during
a game of Blades of Steel.
My mommy even said I was Oscar-worthy as a dingo in a Grade
Oh, how times have changed. After standing in line at Tim
Hortons for almost 15 minutes the other day, I realized I'm
not special whatsoever - like everyone else on campus, I'm
a slave to Mr. Horton and his wily ways.
Lining up like lemmings ready to jump off a cliff to our impending
doom, we eagerly toss our loonies and toonies at his jingling
How did Tim do this to us? How did he destroy our will to

Did you notice Mr. William hid himself far off in the corner,
clearly away from the sight of Tim and his henchmen? I will
accept this William is a smart man, but if he thinks he is
going to dip into Tim's profits by opening some black market
operation, he's sorely mistaken. The FBI and CIA have nothing

There was a time when I questioned my addiction to Tim Hortons,
but recently I have come to realize being his slave isn't all
that bad. It gives me something to do in the middle of the
afternoon when I'm running on empty. It fills my stomach with
fat, greasy goodness. And it lets me read The Gazette, The
Globe and Mail's main competition, dropped in a big grey box
beside the Tim Hortons line.
Tim, I said it once and I will say it again, you complete
