  1. He’s still mayor? Poor Toronto.  :-(

  2. Just_Ok says:

    Whole story seems suscpicious. Ford “ran”?

    • Funk Daddy says:

      You must be new to Ford. Yes, he will literally run, though it is not very effective.

    • voiceinthedistance says:

      The text says that he “sprinted”.  Those little curly marks on either side of the word are there for a reason.

  3. Garymon says:

    Almost as entertaining as the PR disaster formerly know as Amy’s Baking company. 

    • Peter says:

      Except I believe that the baking company doesn’t have many customers who believe they’re doing a fine job.

      For some inexplicable reason, Ford apparently does.

  4. Warren_Terra says:

    Between this guy and the Harper government, it really looks like out neighbors to the north are envious of our Right Wing’s tremendous accomplishments in the field of Crazy, and determined to catch up.

  5. grimc says:

    No recall elections in Toronto?

  6. Chuck says:

    Spelling his name in feces on the hoods of the cars probably would have achieved the same result.

  7. fuzzyfuzzyfungus says:

    The only thing that would have made this better is a few overly-sensitive car alarms going off…

  8. Harry Chong says:

    Really, Cory? Name calling at your age? How high and mighty of you.

  9. Nathalie Plum says:

    well, right now I’m watching Denis Coderre being interviewed about his Montreal mayoral bid he announced today.

    wish us luck…we might get our own bumblefuck mayor…

  10. Steve Nordquist says:

     Well, it is spring, and he knows he’d catch it if he disrobed and shot into the air at the meeting (or parking lot.) For calling dispositions or depositions ‘deputations,’ what does Price get, farmed salmon served at his next restaurant jaunt? Not such a huge demerit this time; you might have fixed him up, Cory et. al! (With that in mind, have Nuts & Bjolts always sold Durk Piaiarsson and Sandy Shiviiaw supplements? Because popcorn…lysine…popcorn…you know?)

  11. Cowicide says:

    laughable bumblefuck of a mayor

    Is that what it says on his fridge magnets?

  12. ScytheNoire says:

    How again did this guy become mayor of Canada’s largest city?

    This would be like some corrupt billionaire becoming mayor of New York.

    Oh, wait…

    Maybe it’s time for a conservatorship and a nice, quiet place to rest.

  14. Finnagain says:

    Is he insane? He sounds a little insane.

    • bzishi says:

      What do you mean by asking this?

      Note: by asking this question, I’ve given you a chance to climb out of the hole that you have dug. You should probably think carefully before replying. I’ll give you some hints on how not to proceed: attributing assholery to mental illness, using an outdated term like ‘insane’, and diagnosing via Internet are often considered offensive.

      • Finnagain says:

         I meant to make you angry.

        • bzishi says:

          You didn’t make me angry. I almost never post when I’m angry (I go for a walk instead). You just disappointed me a little. It is a common tactic in modern life to attribute being an asshole to mental illness. Most people do so without even thinking of it (e.g. “conservatism/liberalism is a mental illness”). Whenever people do this, I just try to make sure they are aware that their words are stigmatizing and damaging (as well as when they diagnose via Internet).

          • IronEdithKidd says:

            After seeing the next BB posting about Ford, we should maybe be attributing his behavior to cocaine.  It’s a hell of a drug.

          • Antinous / Moderator says:

            Possibly relevant.

          • IronEdithKidd says:

            @Antinous_Moderator:disqus :  I want to ‘like’ this more.

          • Gulliver says:

            While I think were a bit snide and condescending to Finnagain (a sin I’ve been guilty of often enough, FWIW), I agree with you. The trend of chalking stupid/evil/ignorant behavior up to mental illness is really (and I believe most of the time unintentionally) asinine.

            Some people won’t care, but I’m posting this to reach the ones who do care and just don’t consider the ramifications of the stereotype their perpetuating. IMO, and you may disagree, I think crazy is a good substitute for insane or mentally ill. Crazy has become a term that has evolved to the point where most people recognize as a behavior, not a mental state.

    whenever i see stories like this, i calm myself down by watching this video.

    over and over and over again.

    • skeptacally says:

      the best part? the Curly-esque high-pitched muttering as he stumbles away from the scene.

      i keep expecting a “woob-woob-woob-woob”

    • dragonfrog says:

      Where’s the footage from the camera he walked into?  Come on, please, world!

  16. gracchus says:

    There might be an explanation for this odd, manic behaviour:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if you’re a mayor then Marion Barrie is really not someone you want to emulate.

  17. timquinn says:

    He is performing for his constituency who have no regard for egg-heads who actually discuss things and take rational action. he is on point in his battle against boring.

  18. Missy Pants says:

    Did you all see the Gawker article claiming his honour smokes crack? And there’s video to boot? Oh man, crossing all my fingers!

    • I’m not gonna lie, I giggled with glee as I read Gawkers article. I’m embarrassed that he’s is the leader of our nations largest city, but anything that exposes him as the “bumblefuck” that he is puts a smile on my face.

      • Missy Pants says:

        I’ve been so happy since last night! It’s like xmas but for Torontonians only! YAY US! :D

        • Funk Daddy says:

          More like Chanukah, something to celebrate day after day,  Ford on Crack, Duffy down, then out, Wallin a’wailin away, talk that Fordeux won’t go down alone if they are going down… next week (after Monday) is going to be huge, either a huge letdown or a huge improvement

  19. Angling Saxon says:

    Toronto will never live down the shame of having had Ford as mayor. 

  20. blissfulight says:

    He’s a crackhead or cokehead:  http://gawker.com/for-sale-a-video-of-toronto-mayor-rob-ford-smoking-cra-507736569

  21. Amor DeCosmos says:

    (sorry, repost – deleted) What blissfulight said.

  22. SomeGuyNamedMark says:

    He is the Ralph Wiggam of mayors

  23. the__fool says:

    Lay off him, guys. It’s not like he was smoking crack or anything. He just really wants to talk to you.

  24. Ian McLoud says:

    Deadspin just posted an article:

    528 days until Torontonians can vote for someone else to be mayor… not that I voted for him the last time.
