A new video of Toronto Mayor Rob "Laughable Bumblefuck" Ford has surfaced. For a change, the mayor is not smoking crack in this video. Instead, he's incredibly drunk, and vowing to graphically murder his critics, while swearing in a way that is surprising for its creativity and imaginativeness, if not its sobriety.
In this profanity-laden, 77-second video, Ford is seen pacing about the dining room of a house, threatening death to an unnamed enemy, ranting and gesticulating wildly. A person off camera, who is encouraging Ford’s behaviour, tells him to wait until “after the byelection,” an apparent reference to the byelection Ford wanted the city to hold to replace departed deputy mayor Doug Holyday.
The reference to the by-election puts the timing of the video sometime in August.
The need to replace deputy mayor Holyday came on August 1 when he became a provincial legislator. City council voted on August 26 to choose his successor by appointment instead of the $250,000 byelection Ford said was the more democratic choice.
Similar to the crack video the Star witnessed in May, Ford’s words switch rapidly from being easily heard to incomprehensible.
“I am a sick motherf--ker, dude,” says Ford, rolling up the cuffs of his collared shift up to his elbow. “Like no one’s gonna f--k around with me.”
At points in the video, Ford is incoherent and unintelligible. He appears to say that unidentified critics call him and his brothers “birds.”

If you owe someone money in China and kidnap them to get paid, the police are likely to treat the whole thing as a civil matter of “unlawful detention” and stay out of it (especially if the debtor is a foreigner and the lender is Chinese).
Five years ago, a patent troll called “Personal Audio” started demanding money from podcasters, claiming that their patent on mailing cassette tapes of people reading magazines (a ridiculous patent on its face) also covered podcasting.
