No matter what you call it, there’s no argument that the coffee shop is a Canadian institution. So it should come as no surprise that the chain is home to some of the funniest and weirdest headlines of 2016.
It’s a tale as old as time. Man goes into Tim Hortons to get a coffee, comes out to find cougar attacking his dog, punches cougar, then chases it into the woods, only to have the cougar to return to try and attack the dog again. You know, just your regular day at Tim Hortons. His experience still wasn’t as bad as Tim Horton’s lids.
You might think that Alberta is known for its cowboy culture, but it turns out we’re really more of a zamboni-kinda people. And some times, when the craving for a Hot Chocolate from Timmies hits you, you gotta get on your zamboni and drive 4kms for the drive thru. Don’t act like you haven’t done it.

And some say journalism is dead. This quick acting reporter saved a driver from what have no doubt been a tragic loss. We’ve already been through so much in 2016, no one should ever have to say goodbye to their Timmies too soon.

The poor deer sacrificed its life just for a taste of Timmies. I think we’ve all felt like before.
I think the most shocking part of this story is that someone actually won something other than a doughnut from the Roll Up The Rim. But this story also comes with an important lesson: Facebook friends is for Farmville, not for posting your winning code.
I actually think this is the plot to Speed 3.
Cougar, deer, llamas oh my. While Tim Hortons has struggled to expand outside of Canada, that doesn’t mean that exotic animals haven’t heard Canadians loud and clear declare their love for Timmies. How else do you explain a llama using its free time to check out Tim Hortons?
