I don’t know if this Tim Horton’s tattoo will be hilarious to anyone who doesn’t live in, say, Hamilton (or at least Canada — you may be amused to hear that Canadian troops in Afghanistan insisted on Timmy’s coffee because “American coffee just isn’t the same thing“), but here you go! It was done by Dale Parent at Tribal Sun in Cornwall, Ontario.

    Tim Hortons is deffinitely an all over Canada thing. I actually see a lot less of them in Ontario than I do in NB and NS.

    I used to live a block away from the first Timmies (it’s on Ottawa St., Hamilton) about 2 months ago. Now it’s a 15 drive to the closest one. I’m po’ed, having a timmies a block away was a sweet deal.

    I’ll die before I give up my Timmies fix though…

    One of my buddies in northern Maine (Canada border) would walk across the border to get Tim Hortons every morning because (back 15 years ago) it was easy to cross the border and the USD was strong.

    Edmonton’s radio station Sonic doesn’t do traffic reports, it does reports on how busy different Timmy’s are. When I worked in an office this winter we had “tim’s runs” and everyone in the office would pitch for donuts and coffee…we spent over $100 once :)

    If by “American” you mean Folgers or for that matter sTarbucks I will say anything is better including warm motor oil. My personal favorite is Stumptown Coffee Roasters in Portland Oregon. For a national chain I would go with Peet’s. If IAM ever in Canada I will check out this Tim Horton Coffee thing.

    Is it just me or does he look like he’s stuck a straw into his muscle and is inflating it ?

    I love Timmy’s!

    yeah, starbuck’s is a terrible basis for juding coffee in the states. i won’t drink that garbage. with the coffee craze around here, it’s just as easy to find a mom and pop shop that carries a more local fair trade roast, and you can find some damn good coffee that way.

    fucking yes

    Haha I can’t believe I haven’t seen a Timmy’s tattoo until now. Timmy’s apple cider is THE BEST though. Mmm…

    I went to comedian over the weekend and he referred to it as Tim Heroin….when you need a fix go to Timmy’s!

    what i have heard from a friend who either managed or owned their own timmy’s was that there is nicotine in their coffee, just so people get hooked on it.

    Posted on 02-21-2006 03:32:16 by shell
    i’d rather have it spiked with cocaine.

    Posted on 02-21-2006 15:04:40 by nyx
    Your friend’s fucking with you, man – I worked there a long time. No nicotine in it.

    Heh, you’re not Canadian, unless you can enjoy a Horton’s fix every now and then. Bah. That’s awesome. Dale’s a great guy, he’s my artist too! :D

    “finally a place to brag about living 5min away from the very first tim hortons!


    I second that WHOLE HEARTEDLY!! =D

  2. Bad Ass Coffee in Calgary had their rent doubled and they had to close, then Tim Horton’s moved in. I hate Tim Hortons.

    They never have cute pierced girls working the counter like Bad Ass did.

  3. timmys does have the best coffee around, but i’d like ta hear more about the artist of that tat….

  4. I have a Tim Hortons tattoo, I got it four years ago but it doesn’t look like that. I live about an hour south of Buffalo ny.
