Our 13 Favourite Rob Ford 'Enough to Eat' Tweets
We chose the "unlucky" number of 13 because of the inherent luck required for us to be alive during this.

Nothing brings out great acerbic wit like a good political scandal, and some of Toronto’s finest tweeters proved it yesterday. In an effort to catalogue some of our local tweet greatness, we’ve complied a list of our 13 favourite tweets on Rob Ford’s latest oral gaffe. Yes, of course, we’re the one where our lovely mayor professed that he had no time to perform oral sex on any office staffers because he has more than enough to eat at home. Now that we’ve heard our mayor speaking to the press in City Hall as though he were 2 Chainz in Magic City, here, in no particular order, are some of the funniest and most insightful things we read on the subject from Torontonians both home and abroad.

Okay, good work, Toronto. Now, listen to this and tell them Rob Ford sent you.
