The annual roll up the rim to lose thread

It's that time of the year when Tim Horton doles out $60 million worth of prizes, and you have a 1 in 6 chance of winning,post your winnings in this thread

This time of year is the closest thing I have to a religious holiday.

Now, instead of drinking laughably large amounts of Tim's tea, I can drink laughably large amounts of tea with a 1/6 chance of getting even more for free!

I'd love to post my winnings here, but I haven't purchased anything at shit horton's in 5 years. That was back in the days when I had lost all traces of sanity.

I have news for you, I hate Ben Mulroney, I think the CN tower is ugly, I think the RCMP are a bunch of brown shirts, I never ate at Swiss chalet and I never said (or heard anyone say) the stereotypical "eh".

So, eat it.

You would have to purchase their poor excuse for flavoured ass water to be able to even have a chance at winning. Personally I am of the opinion that winners are those who buy good coffee.

I actually prefer McDonald's coffee over Timmies, but now that I'm back in college as a mature student they only have Timmies in the school so my Timmies intake has shot up.

So far I have won 2 coffees. I always pray for a Lexus though. Do they still give away Lexus'? Or is it just a Toyota now?

Nope. People in Montreal simply don't say it.

I agree, I switched to McDonalds a while ago, as their coffee is much better and more consistant. I'll still grab a Tims once in a while, if that's all that's around. Both are much better than that burnt tasting shit coffee at Starbucks though!
