For those who don't know, Tim Tams are Australia's favorite cookie. The great news is that their now available right here in the US (at Target and other stores)
Little did I know about the Tim Tam Slam(!) until I received an e-mail from a fellow Flickr photographer. "The Tim Tam Slam is the practice of drinking a beverage (usually a hot beverage such as coffee or hot chocolate, though milk is a very valid alternative) through a Tim Tam. (also known as a Tim Tam Shotgun, Tim Tam Bomb or Tim Tim Explosion). Opposite corners of the Tim Tam are bitten off, one end is submerged in the drink, and the drink sucked through the biscuit. The crisp inside biscuit is softened and the outer chocolate coating begins to melt."
