oh-Canada

ok, as a Canadian sometimes i feel like its my duty to remind people JUST HOW BIG MOOSE ARE BECAUSE THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY MASSIVE YOU DONT UNDERSTAND 

DO YOU UNDERSTAND

HOW FREAKING HUGE THEY ARE? YOU HIT A MOOSE WITH YOUR CAR AND YOUR CAR IS THE THING THAT BREAKS. 

THEY ARE BIGGER THEN ELK AND PRE MUCH ANY OTHER ANIMAL IN CANADA LIKE LOOK AT THAT LOOK AT THE ELK AND THEN THE MOOSE DO YOU UNDERSTAND 

this has been a Canadian psa. images used were pulled from a quick google search  

A bear has surprised utility workers in Canada by taking a snooze on an electricity pole. A resident of Shellbrook, a rural community in the Saskatchewan province, alerted the local power company, and a crew was quickly despatched. “By the time our crew got on site, the bear was already on top of the pole,” spokesman Tyler Hopson from the SaskPower utility tells Canadian Metro newspaper. “He was awake initially, and got fairly comfortable it seems and decided to have a bit of a nap.”

PSA: It’s spelled “Timmies” not “Timmy’s”

Also there’s no apostrophe, they abandoned grammar for…idk what. Clarity of signage or something. Tim Hortons not Tim Horton’s!

You go there for (a) coffee and doughnuts, (b) bagels and cream cheese © soup and sandwiches. 

If you want a standard order, an everything bagel with herb and garlic cream cheese and a large double-double would make nobody blink. A hockey player would probably get at least two bagels though. If you are buying for a bunch of people you can get a box of timbits (10/20/50, though the 50 is a new size and used to be 40 until last year.)

Double double means two creams, two sugars. If you aren’t getting that, you tend to say explicitly what you want (e.g. most people don’t say say single single). I order a coffee with one cream, for example. But they always add it for you, you never add your own milk/cream/sugar.

(The cream is also 18% cream which I think most people don’t know. Richer than table cream at 10% even, which is another reason it tastes so good.)

Finally, if you are on a road trip in Canada and you need to pee, you look for the Timmies in the next town/roadside stop. It is extremely useful because you don’t need to buy anything, but you always want to anyway.
