    This is something that has been developing in Canada for a while, what are your thoughts? Who should get? How would you deal with it?


    Apparently since then the guy who bought the cup originally is claiming the prize and wants to do a DNA test on the cup to prove it was his.
    Greedy, greedy, greedy.

    Suddenly the lyrics from the old ‘One Tin Solder’ song from the 70’s come to mind.

    I say they divide the RAV4 into three equal shares and divide it amongst the three claimants.

    I say Tim Hortons should take the cash equivalent of the prize and keep it.

    Give it to that kid camp charity.

    How can the "original" owner of the cup even know it was his? Also I would say that the 10 year old girls family should have it because she found it.

    They usually do that anyways, you just have to pay for the donut first.

    I really don't get why this is an issue. Third party gets the truck, sells it, splits the money in two. And just to piss off the parents, put the money in a trust fund for both the girls until they are 21.

    It is really just a comment on how ridiculous the legal system is getting.

    Y'know... that DNA testing the cup to find the cup's drinker was my initial thought. But after seeing the amount of cups that are brought into my work on a daily basis compared to the actual amount of winners, I say... screw 'em all.

    I just want to win a fucking donut, that's all.

    Greedy bastards like this never surprise me. Screw the guy who threw it away (since he did), screw the 12-year-old's mom for saying it's all hers, give it to the girl who dug it out of the garbage in the first place. If she wants to share it, let her.

    Finders keepers!
