Cartoon: Timfills

This cartoon is a bit extreme and out of context. This Bright Future – a weekly comic by Lind published this work on Yahoo! and is called “Timfill.” It hints that Timmies is responsible for a massive amount of waste, namely the millions of Roll Up the Rim cups, that Canadians throw out everyday.

The cartoon shows that 8 out the 10 cups are coming from Timmies, which is true as 8 out of the 10 cups of coffee purchased in Canada are at a Tim Hortons – but it’s incorrect for the artist to claim this as some old-timers actually get their java in a mug and sit in the restaurant.

I understand this is all in good fun. I must admit that I’ve seen a random Timmies cup on the side of the road or beside the garbage can… but the complete truth is also important.

I'm obsessed with Tim Hortons. It runs through my veins and I've probably spent enough money downing Steeped Tea's that I could have purchased my own franchise.
