I can't speak for crack, but "cocaine is amazing" is a factual statement.

This guy really is unbelievable.  Its even more unbelievable that he's got a hope in hell in the next election, as in I cannot believe it but its true:  There are idiots that are going to vote for him and for all the wrong reasons.
 
2014-05-07 04:43:13 PM
Wait, i thought he didn't show up for rehab?

Or is that the joke?
 
2014-05-07 04:43:23 PM
The first hit after a long period of sobriety is awesome. Especially if you were getting haldol during your dry spell. Or so said Some degenerate as I passed him on the way to my Audi turbo.

That's some cracker jack reporting
 
2014-05-07 04:46:23 PM
I'd vote for him. He seriously cannot be any more worse than some of the other yahoos we have to choose from.

Rob Ford?

Is this going to start a wave of fat kids taking up crack, hoping to become mayor of a major metropolis?  I can only hope so!

was hoping someone would make the marion barry link before I had too..

Barry, was pathetic though... Ford is comical. mostly because he's Canadian, so we here in the states dont have to worry about him.

also, according to a previous Fark articles, I thought he got turned away at the border in chicago after threatening to invade California and hasnt been seen since.

Solty Dog: I'd vote for him. He seriously cannot be any more worse than some of the other yahoos we have to choose from.


Well at least since all his powers have been stripped he's better than having John Tory in there.

But seriously, what is it about these assholes that appeals to you people?  I keep hearing about how Rob gives the impression of an undereducated, blue collar, suburban, sports loving guy you'd want to have a beer with at a backyard BBQ.  Which I suppose is fine for your social life. But that is not the kind of person I want making decisions about how my city is run.

There are reasonable options for Toronto but all Ford Nation wants to hear is "lower taxes". How about somebody with an actual plan for the city?

I have not had any experience with rehab, but I somehow think that any facility worthy of the name doesn't let its inmates/guests/patients call in to radio talk shows within the first week to explain how much fun they are having. Nor do I believe they'd let them make campaign phone calls while attempting to get clean

However, a family hideaway in the Muskokas wouldn't have such restrictive policies in place ... plus a fully stocked bar

I have previously stated that I would play nice if he admitted his problems and went to rehab. However, I'm going to require a proof of purchase, otherwise, I'm going to think he's hunkered down, and waiting for this all to blow over.

Yeah that's what i thought. I can be a little thick sometimes but i guess i get the joke this time.

mtbhucker: Rob Ford may not be in rehab?  I am SHOCKED!


That article says he's supposed to be in alcohol rehab. Does that mean he can still have all the crack he wants?
 
2014-05-07 05:39:38 PM
I won't be voting for him as mayor of Canada again.

/never did before either

Crack is so whack. Its not like the first time you do meth and go "this is so amazing!" Rather its like "Ugh.... I need some more already...?"
 
2014-05-07 06:37:13 PM
Sounds like he's getting high on life.

He's getting REALLY high on life.

I think it's hilarious that people actually believe he is in rehab after all the whoppers he has told (and eaten) lately.

FTA

Rob Ford "I said to myself, 'Am I going to try to cover it up for the rest of your life or deal with it and go to professional help?' " he said. "I decided to get help."

Well no SHIAT you gave up covering it up. ITS EVERYWHERE. Its household news that you are a crack smoking joke! Its watercooler chit chat -"Hey, have you heard about Rob Ford again!?" Its Leno monologue old already! What a jackass! Everytime he opens his mouth, its even funnier than the previous.
 
2014-05-07 07:03:43 PM
meh. crack has no legs
 
2014-05-07 07:22:17 PM
He's going to die of an overdose and I'm not going to be that upset. He's had all the chances in the world to address his problems and he's just been a jerk to everyone. Whatever sympathy I had for that asshole dried up years ago.

Lower taxes = more money for crack.

This is why I still like coming to Fark. Tact, subtlety, and nuanced discussions .... none of that happens here
