Stay Mayor: free Android game based on Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's scandals

Stay Mayor is a free Android game based on the horrifying, hilarious misadventures of Toronto Mayor Rob "Laughable Bumblefuck" Ford. In order to win, you play the mayor "as he flees from reporters, avoids crack pipes, and tries to pick up as much cash as possible in order to buy the alleged video before Gawker gets it. The player can pick up footballs along the way and lob them at nasty cameramen who try to get in the mayor's way."

And what happens if the mayor run into too many cameras or crack pipes?

“He slows down, then eventually the media scrum overtakes him. The metaphor is that he has to deal with the media now, which is probably his worst nightmare,” Mr. McEvoy said.

The player then sees a sad screen that says "bunch of maggots," he added.

  1. Rod Ford is correct in not commenting on issues that are hearsay or conjecture. Making a game of it furthers his stance and ridicules the opposition. IMO. 

    I don’t appreciate his stance and approach although it is better then the muck slinging subjective analogies thrown at him. 

    Have proof? Show it don’t tell it.

    1. Bomber,
      All of of human experience is both hearsay and conjecture.  

      The crimes of which Mayor Ford stands involved and accused go a little beyond these trivia. They involve photographs of his crack smoking, and a witness to that crime has been murdered.
      There is nothing “analogous,” nor “subjective,”about the multiple and serious reports that Ford was a BMOC as a drug wholesaler in high school. The charges are specific, self-consistent, true to character, and believable by reasonable people.
      If there is any context we need to understand all this, Ford ought to stand up and supply it.

  2. Bwaaahahahahahah, installing as I type.

    The app description is gold:

    Help the Mayor Stay Mayor!

    Uh oh. Looks like the Mayor’s in a buttload of friggin’ trouble with that alleged video of him smoking crack! And who knows if it even exists, amiright? But juuust in case, why don’t you help him collect a heap of cash to buy it before The Gawker does. Only your twinkle toes can out-maneuver the Blood Thirsty Media to help him collect more than they did in that damn “Crackstarter” campaign. $201,255 to be exact. And hey, everyone needs a little boost now and then, so make sure you collect power up buckets of deep-fried courage for more footballs to throw at life’s problems… but make sure you avoid those pesky crackpipes!

    Good luck trying to Stay Mayor! Go git em!

    PS: Don’t smoke crack.

  3. It’s pretty fun, I kept running out of footballs but I managed to make the $300000. I was like “Yay! I won!” then thought “Shit, I shouldn’t have. I should be in jail or something”.
