They Put Nicotine in Tim Hortons Coffee

 
Friday's Urban Legend: FALSE

Have you received an email message like this one?
Are you a Non- Smoker or Against smoking all together ?

Do you ever wonder why you have to have your coffee every morning?

** TIM HORTON'S SHOCKER **

A man from Arkansas came up to Canada for a visit only to find himself in the hospital after a couple of days. Doctor's told him that he had suffered of cardiac arrest. He was allergic to Nicotine. The man did not understand why that would of happened as he does not smoke knowing full well he was allergic to Nicotine. He told the doctor that he had not done anything different while he was on vacation other than having Tim Horton's coffee. The man then went back to Tim Horton's and asked what was in their coffee. Tim Horton's refuses to divulge that information. After threatening legal action, Tim Horton's finally admitted.....

*** THERE IS NICOTINE IN TIM HORTON'S COFFEE ***

A girl I know was on the patch to quit smoking. After a couple of days she was having chest pains & was rushed to the hospital. The doctor told her that she was on a Nicotine overload. She swore up & down that she had not been smoking. SHE WAS HAVING HER COFFEE EVERY MORNING.

Now imagine a women who quits smoking because she finds out that she is pregnant, but still likes to have her Tim Horton's once in a while.

THIS IS NOT A JOKE, PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG.... YOU MIGHT SEE THIS ON THE NEWS SOON.

Another version has "them" putting MSG in the coffee instead of nicotine. That's the version that I received this week from well-meaning, but not very skeptical, friends.

As usual, snoopes.com is on the case [Nicotine Non-Fit]. There is no nicotine in Tim Hortons coffee and there's no MSG either.

  1. My bullshit detector goes off for such emails immediately upon receipt, and pings again when I see stupid grammar errors such as the inappropriate use of apostrophes and the use of an ampersand instead of writing out the word "and".

    Do you ever wonder why you have to have your coffee every morning?

    It couldn't have anything to do with the (mildly) addictive properties of caffeine, could it? No, it must be some other chemical that's widely known to be highly addictive! Is there a version of this stupidity that involves heroin?
