A Sign that Winter is Nearly Over

The person who tossed this empty coffee cup on the ground littered.

But they had the courtesy to toss it in a way that left the rolled-up rim with "play again" showing.

What could be more Canadian?

If Bridgehead did Roll Up the Rim, you would probably see things like:

- free organic coffee
- pair of Tom's Shoes
- trip to Africa
- 100 gc for Bridgehead
- 10,000 to the charity of your choice

seeing the photo of this lying in the snow reminds me of something my daughter did when we was probably only 2 or 3. we were walking down the road and she saw a roll of the rim but. down into the ditch she jumped to grab it and roll up the rim.

funny!

I hope littering isn't typically "Canadian". If so, we are in trouble. :P

Hannah,

If Tim Horton's coffee is a Canadian icon, then I am afraid either littering is typically Canadian or there is some sort of foreign conspiracy going on.

J,

I bet you're right about the Bridgehead prizes. Especially the donation to the charity of your choice.

Sally and Raino,

I'm sorry, I don't get either of your comments.

"What could be more Canadian?"

- taking a picture of a discarded Tim Horton's Coffee cup.

- The fact that I'm sure you picked it up and disposed of it properly shortly after taking the photo.

What I meant was: Did ya roll up the rim? after you said:

But they had the courtesy to toss it in a way that left the rolled-up rim with "play again" showing.

that's all...

Darrell, excellent answer to the question and it has inspired me to add a topper:

- using the discarded cup to collect used road salt at the bus stop and bringing the salt home to use on the sidewalk next winter.

SalonSally, No, I didn't. I would have. But it was already rolled up.
