Mecca for Canadians


Damian Brooks reports from the Kandahar Tim Hortons.

The Timmies always has a line-up. Always. And it's full of Americans and Brits and Romanians and Dutch, as well as a healthy contingent of desert CADPAT uniforms. The only reason there's no queue in this shot is that we arrived before it opened in the morning (I know - that was my first thought too: there's a Tim Horton's somewhere in the world that's not open 24/7? Heresy!). Honestly, the base could support two, especially if they delivered like the Pizza Hut does.

And another report, this one from oh-dark-thirty in which Damian reveals he is not a morning person.

Hey, my Canadian cousin said there was a bit of a stink over Tim Horton's freezing their dough or something, maybe a few years back. Any memory of that?

Always frozen, then reheated.

(Their slogan at the time was "Always Fresh".)

Half of any given class of undergrads still believes they put nicotine in the coffee. No, man, the real story is the dough...
