Through the "random RSS feed headline" at the top of my GMail inbox comes "Coffee shop job: good pay, bad commute":

Canada is willing to pay top dollar so that its soldiers in Afghanistan are served the kind of coffee and treats they crave.

So well, in fact, that Brigitte Smiley, spokeswoman for the Canadian Forces Personnel Support Agency, said at least 100 Canadians have applied for 15 jobs at the soon-to-open Tim Hortons Inc. coffee shop at Canada's military base at Kandahar.

Tim Hortons is an extremely popular coffee and baked goods chain in Canada.

Extremely popular? Please! According to Wikipedia:

Tim Hortons has supplanted McDonald's as Canada's largest "fast food" operator; it has nearly twice the number of Canadian outlets, and its revenues surpassed those of McDonald's Canadian operations in 2002.

Canadians love their dooonuts... eh?
