Lawyer calls for DNA test in Tim Hortons dispute
MONTREAL —A Montreal lawyer wants a DNA test on a prize-winning Tim Hortons coffee cup that has already pitted two elementary school girls against one another. Claude Archambault said his client, whom he declined to name, bought the coffee cup that was picked out of the garbage bin by a 10-year-old girl at her elementary school in St-Jerome, north of Montreal.
According to media reports, the 10-year-old who plucked it from the garbage can last Tuesday couldn’t unroll the rim with her small fingers and asked for help from a 12-year-old school mate. When the cup turned out to be a winner, one of 30 with Toyota RAV4 written under the rim, a dispute erupted over who had claim to the $28,700 prize
I think it needs to be said that rolling up the rim of your coffee cup is a digusting process. Saliva moistened cardboard and coffee stained pants are my usual rewards. Although, I do know a guy who won a fatass BBQ a couple of years ago. He left it out on his back deck all winter and it rusted to sh*t.
