Rob Ford finally gets his very own crack pipe

Posted by Aubrey Jax / December 19, 2013

Rob Ford Crack PipeDesigners at Toronto's Hot Pop Factory have finally gone and done it. The 3D printing shop has produced a one-off of what they call the Ford Pipe - a white crack pipe bearing Ford's face which comes in a little wooden box. While it's not quite the solid gold crack pipe shaped like City Hall that I asked Santa for in our Rob Ford merch round up last week, this beats bobbleheads for ridiculousness and everything else for style and craftsmanship.

Look at that thing. Does it work? If you're asking, you might have bigger problems than I'm ready to talk about. More importantly - will they be making more? Hot Pop says so far this is just a "fun, satirical art piece," but if it generates interest, this could be an actual thing people can buy.

You can wonder at the possibilities of the human race on Hot Pop's site here.

This is not a nice thing to do. Shame on whoever designed this. He is a person and he did his best to help the city. What a horrible way to treat another fellow human being.
you are lower then animals, you do not show another person basic respect.

yes our mayor admitted he smoked crack in his personal life the star made millions from exploiting him .denial dale is now a world known reporter at the cost of our mayor and our city they thought ratter than help him it was more benifical to exploit him.it is mind bloggling that our mayors personal problems got more media attention than the liberals scam that cost taxpayers millions or our feds who writes cheques as if it was their own money.our mayor may have a problem he needs to deal with for sure.but jn the middle of neverending attacks he still finds charity within himself.so you decide whats more important our mayors drug problem or the wasting of our hard earned tax dollars.

Ironic you mention intelligence. It's no accusation to say your posts are unreadable, it's merely a fact. It reads like something one would see on an American Redneck site posted by uneducated Trailer Trash. What's being a father of 5 got to do with having a grade two literacy level? So you couldn't keep it in your pants, whoopdeedoo.
