Ainsley (conservator at NGC) once referred to Tim Horton's as 'Timmy Ho-Hos," which is just fantastic. The real Tim Horton was apparently a really good hockey player who opened a side business selling doughnuts and coffee. And the Canadians really love their doughnuts, so Tim Horton's business quickly became a chain and took over the entire nation.
Hye-Sung and I were standing in line along with a bunch of flannel-shirt and work-boot wearing Canadians. Out-loud I said, "I hope they have doughnut holes."
The Canadian in front of me turned around and said, "Timbits."
I said, "Excuse me?"
"You mean Timbits."
So, at Tim Horton's, doughnut holes are called Timbits. Just so you know. And you can purchase them in units of ten: observe below. I keep screwing the name up, calling them TimmyBites.
