Canada's Mayor

Chris Farley Toronto Mayor Rob Ford

Come on folks admit it.  You LOVE Toronto's mayor Rob Ford!  Hey, what's the big deal anyway.  He's fat.  So what?  Who cares other than the media who likes to take cheap pot shots.  Look, this guy is as honest as they come.  Check out Ford pointing out the hypocrisy of a Toronto city council member accusing him of substance abuse when said city council member was arrested himself for drunk driving.



I am thoroughly enjoying watching the prim and proper public figures from the media and Toronto city council being outraged, I say OUTRAGED that a fat man dared to not run and hide once they started to mock him.

And then there was the instance where he ran over a fellow city council woman (get out of the way woman!) for what reason I don't know but it is funny to watch.




Comedians are getting high from all the way too easy jokes making fun of a fat man and a politician. 



Remember when Bill Clinton used to be fodder for the late night comedians? Uh huh, move over Bubba! Toronto's redoubtable Mayor Rob Ford has assumed the new position to be the butt (pun intended) of the late night comedians' jokes.



But you know hat folks, Mayor Ford doesn't appear to care what anyone thinks.  Bravo for him! Even the famous anchor Ron Burgundy has got into the game.  Here Ron sings Mayor Ford's new campaign song.



Rock it Ron!

And finally, here is a compilation of the late night comedians' joke at Mayor Ford's expense.  Hey folks, you have to admit this is funny.  Sad yes, but funny. And really in the end, isn't this better than killing people in an unnecessary war in Iraq? (What did Ron just say?)

    1. Randy,

      Rob Ford, the mayor of Toronto is quite a character. Of course I've been kidding my friend from Toronto quite a bit about his mayor. Jolly good fun.

  2. Ron, we could use Ford here in Sacramento. Our mayor would make better decisions if he was on crack.

    1. Geo.,
      If you had a mayor like Ford he would certainly generate a lot of publicity for Sacramento.

  3. Holy smokes, Ron. Whoops, did I just say that? Hey - your blog is hilarious. I hadn't seen those clips before. Actually it's been a frenzy in Toronto about Ford even before he became elected. Apparently his support has gone up. Pretty amazing stuff he's not crumbling to all the attention. I'll let you know what happens next election.

    1. Pat,

      Well, Rob Ford has certainly put Tornonto on the map of the world. I expect tourist business will be way up this year.

  4. Ford is top-notch entertainment. You can be sure that he'll not disappoint. Our nearest political 'comedian' is Boris Johnson, current Mayor of London - bumbling and gaffe-prone but also strangely likeable - though have to say that for jaw-dropping conduct, Ford knock spots of him.

    Btw: I do still so miss 'The Daily Show' which used to be aired here nightly (on the following night) but was taken off a couple of years ago because of disappointing viewing figures. (Oh, some Brits have NO taste, honestly!) Can still get odd clips on things like YouTube but complete progs are not available, at least for this country. They must be having a field day with Ford - and his ilk.

    1. Ray,

      I've heard about your mayor of London, Boris Johnson. "Bumbling and gaffe-prone but also strangely likable"…..sounds a lot like our current vice president Joe Biden.

  5. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

    I hadn't been following this that closely...

    Holy Crap!!! Ford is like Chris Farley reincarnated!!!

    Well, if Ford gets axed, he can always come down to Washington, D.C. and run for mayor. Marion Berry got *RE-ELECTED* after being busted by the FBI for crack in 1990 ("The bitch set me up!")

    As Chris Rock famously said, "Only Black people would elect a crack head for mayor!"

    Well I guess we can say only Black people and Torontorians...

    This calls for some vintage Rock:

    1. Andy,

      He is the reincarnation of Chris Farley isn't he? Right down to the crack smoking.

  6. An English authoress once commented 'We love it when our Monarchs act out our fantasies. We voice shock and disapproval but inside we are loving the spectacle" Indeed.

  7. Obviously he is an embarrassment to a great city but I also have to say I find the honesty refreshing. He politicians claim to never have inhaled if they smoked pot. Rob says he smokes cracked but is not an addict and, besides, he only smoked it during drunken binges. That said, I am glad my tax dollars are not paying his salary...of course they are paying Jan Brewer's so it's probably a wash.

    1. I like his honesty too. I think that's the main drive behind all the vilification if him, he's too honest.
