  • Here in the frozen North (i.e. South West Ontario, which is probably comparable in latitude to Lisbon), I am informed by the locals that a 'double double' is a kind of caffeinated beverage, involving extra cream and extra sugar, widely available at Tim Horton's, the local version of Starbucks.

    One can also live dangerously and ask for a triple triple.

    Tim Horton was a hockey player, but I don't know what team he played for.

  • A double-double is also the best item on the menu of the best fast food restaurant ever, In-N-Out Burger. It's two beef patties with two slices of cheese. My personal preference is a double-double done animal style.

  • Dude, what did you expect from a site about In-N-Out Burger? I love a good falafel, and I do minimize my meat intake for ecological reasons. But quit entirely? You'll have to pry that cheeseburger from my cold, dead hands :-)
