Another one of my occasional rants. This one's on those discarded roll up the rim cups you see all over the place in any urban space. It seems as though it's a national issue according to this CBC Nova Scotia news clip I found. I'm not alone in my disgust it seems.
Here's a shocking display of a pile of cups collected in one day at the University of Western Ontario.
Here's an article about someone who at least used the losing cups to create art. Be sure to check out the photos. Can't you just imagine that dried horton's coffee smell?
It seems as though Tim Horton's is concerned. At least they were 2 years ago.* * * UPDATE March 15, 2008 * * *

Yes, it's that time of year again, when melting snow discloses just how many Tim Hortons cups have been tossed on the ground over the winter.
What a shame that so many people treat their city this way.
Don't they realize that, in Hamilton, the cups, serviettes, food remains and tea bags belong in the green cart and the No. 6 plastic lids belong in the blue box for containers?

I am SO disappointed in this roll up rim bull, that I've boycotted Tim's from my daily lunch at work. THe only thing is I work night shift and Tims is the only place open! So now I'm anorexic. ROLL UP THE RIM MADE ME ANOREXIC!
I rolled over 12 cups and didn't win anything, (1 in 9 chance my foot!) so I emailed Tim's and they comforted me with "thanks for your letter, keep on rolling, good luck" ! >:( How Rude.
