'Tis the season for Rob Ford crack pipes

Posted by Derek Flack / December 22, 2013

Rob Ford Crack PipeIt took a while, but enterprising companies have finally realized that the lack of Rob Ford-branded crack pipes on the market is a consumer tragedy that must be remedied. A few days ago we discovered that the folks over at Hot Pop Factory were playing around with 3D prints of a pipe fashioned in the Mayor's likeness, though we're not sure you'd actually want to smoke anything out of them.

That's not the case for the latest product destined for the market. Dubbed the Mr. Mayor Crack Pipe, it's made out of ceramic and ready for the rock(s) of your choice. As far as looks go, this thing is one fine crack pipe, and much more true to Ford's appearance than the shockingly popular bobblehead dolls. You might even say that the image on the pipe looks like the Mayor in one of his drunken rages. He even exhales smoke from the fury burning inside of him...

Rob Ford Crack PipeThere's not much information available about the company making these crack pipes, which are naturally being positioned as limited edition art pieces. Ditto for the date that they'll be released. So you'll have to stick with your run of the mill glass pipe for now, but check the website for updates should you just need to have this thing. And for more outlandish Rob Ford products, check out our merch roundup.

Having been raised in the GTA, and now live in Scotland, I've been following the Rob Ford saga for quite a while, and my uni mates and lecturers are always asking me for updates about the very extreme version of Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. How much will the shipping be for this fine piece of art? HAHA

I suspect a LOT of BlogTO's fans will have use for these.

Toronto Taxpayers: Another use for it is as a true 'crack' pipe, viz. Put it in your crack & blow farts through it!

Hate to ruin the fun, guys, but it's way better if you can see where the substance is on the side of the ball pipe when you're smoking the second hit - this is why ball pipes are clear (and used for meth way more than crack.)

I'm guessing that 0.00% of these pipes will be used for smoking anything. It's an art piece. Besides, why pay for this when the ginseng tubes in every corner store will work just fine?
