A New Werd!

Last week I heard a commentator on the Mothercorp use the werd TimHo's to refer to that venerable Canajun institution that feeds our caffeine addiction. I can't remember what program it was on. Was it Talking Books? Sounds Like Canada? Can't remember, and it's too bad, because I'd really like to credit him by name. TimHo's is so much more evocative than the common Timmy's that you hear all the time. And so I want to do my bit by promoting its increased usage.

TimHoes! Cuz that's what we all are.

TimHo's. Cuz that's what we all are. TimHoes. And being indiscriminately Canajun, we are also all TimHosers! Really, if Bob and Doug Mackenzie, our original and beloved Hosers had been truly prescient, they would have dumped the Molson's and put themselves on SCTV slugging back a two-four of TimHo's (with Maple Pecan Danish on the side).

And, BTW, I'm sure you're all aware that the Canajun Oxford Dictionary has put "Double-double" in its own menu, right? I'm embarrassed to admit that this has become my most common purchase from TimHo's.

Digg! diigo it

It doesn't say easy. If it catches on I bet the h will loose its status and we end up saying Timmo's. Which is less wimpy than Timmy's

TimHo makes me think of Gung Ho. We're all goin Gung Ho over Tim Ho's

Even timbits could become timhoes. But then they would have to change all the hocky jersies of the little folk playing the Canajun game.

If it refers to coffee, people could say, "I can't wake up untill I had my TimHoe fix.

Oh, the postebilities!

I can barely open my eyes as I self medicate by drinking a rich dark black fluid.

Never mind The Tri-Lateral Commission. You have been reading too many old issues of Rolling Stone.


Hot and Black IV for me..

Back later when Timmy kicks me into high gear and I feel a good rant coming on.

Help! I've written and I can't get up!
