"Discovery Canada" airs Rob Ford wildlife documentary

Posted by Chris Bateman / April 8, 2014

toronto ford documentaryRob Ford: wild, unpredictable, animalistic, and hard to track down in his native environment - perfect fodder for a Discovery channel wildlife documentary (or at least a goofy mockumentary).

Last night, Jimmy Kimmel gave viewers "a rare glimpse at one of nature's most powerful and voracious predators: the Great White Ford." Diet (primarily fermented hops,) behaviour (erratic and often aggressive,) and the err... "mating dance" all get examined.

Watch and tell yourself this is the logical byproduct of a crack cocaine scandal.

Billion Dollar LIAR!!!
A Proud Ford Supporter / April 8, 2014 at 04:45 pm
I support Ford...and I find this video funny.

That's the difference. Ford supporters can actually laugh at Ford and themselves, while the haters repeat "crack!" and "international embarrassment" ad nauseam. To the haters, there has been ZERO change in their standard of living, but instead of choosing to accept themselves for their own failings, they blame someone else, namely Ford.

Sad, really.

I would laugh, but I'm crying. / April 8, 2014 at 04:50 pm
Poor Toronto.

(Anyone But Ford, pass it on...)
You are a LIAR, sir. replying to a comment from A Proud Ford Supporter / April 8, 2014 at 05:02 pm
A 100% Liar.

There is no way you find this video funny. This is your version of spin. Somewhere along the way on this blog someone called you out for being a humourless fuck, and this is your proactive way of end-running the inevitable (nailing you on it yet again). Problem is, it doesn't pass the sniff test. What you're doing above is simply taking something that is a truism --namely neo-conservatives (and a large sub-set of mouthbreathing liberal-haters)-- cannot take a fucking joke, especially when it contains a devastating kernel of truth.

Nice try, but sadly transparent. Try again, friendo...I know you have it in you to be less a putz-y see-thru schmoe.

Anyone But Ford.

Wouldn't that be priceless seeing Ford Nation-types (i.e. pathetic stoner-loser dropouts and the fat slags they knocked up) gorging themselves silly until they started to see crazy colour and all began to shit themselves? :)

Yes do come and watch the inevitable happen, yet again. As Ford gets drunk and stoned and ends up being escorted out of his own campaign kick off. And as he is being dragged out, you will here the chants from his loyal supporters, "What he does in his private life is no one's business", "Wynn where's our money?". It should be a great time, so yes do come out, and show your support by bringing your own ridiculous excuse for his bad behaviour, as you will get an opportunity to shout it out loud.

Yes but because you're on your high horse and a supreme being you should not be stooping to our criminal level OR your just another one of us and falling prey to our cause.

I'm all for a "good" against "evil" battle for mayor but if your going to start behaving on the illegal side like us then its just really evil and corrupt against lesser evil and corrupt. Think about it, I thought you were trying to be a role model for Chows grandkids.
Rory replying to a comment from Chippy The Half-Breed Klown / April 8, 2014 at 09:19 pm
what we did was not really care about politics. Were too worried about being trendy & hip that our younger voters are getting burried in debt, that they feel there no way out AND when you feel that way that you don't even have much control over your own life you feel like you have no chance in hell in having a voice in city politics.

The 2010 election had the biggest voter turn out in decades and only what like 52% showed up to vote? Pathetic, but mean while were in other countries fighting for the right for them to be able to vote and have a say BUT we dont even want the say we've got. Our youth don't appreciate what they've grown up in. Yes its tough and yes its expensive but they are complacent once your family has been here for 3-4 generations everyones relaxed and comfortable. Mean while many immigrants are coming here with the drive to achieve a better life for themselves and families and are achieving success and understand what it is to struggle and work hard. Our youth would rather play video games, play on their iPhones and wait for something to be handed to them.
Rory replying to a comment from Chippy The Half-Breed Klown / April 8, 2014 at 09:35 pm
ALSO I don't understand why BlogTo isn't covering any of the activities by the other candidates?
I know they may be positive stories and not so scandalous but as much as they want to dump on Ford (they have every right to) no real coverage of the other candidates? I'd expect atleast one post a week on the others and what their up to.

No the comment from Drop It Bad Idea just above here.

A human being actually took the time to think up and write out those seven sentences.

Fuck. Maybe we DO have the Mayor we deserve. Think I'd better hop the next bus back to New Liskeard...looks like the gene pool dried up faster than I thought it might.
Nope, Rory. replying to a comment from Rory / April 8, 2014 at 09:43 pm
You can't have it. No other candidate coverage for you.

In fact, BlogTO specifically doesn't want you to be happy. We voted, in fact. While you were in the washroom. It was unanimous.

Maybe try your luck on Toronto hear they entertain whiny bitches with wet nappies there.
Nope, Rory. / April 8, 2014 at 09:51 pm
(you know I'm just pokin' fun, right?)

Maybe your earnest plea will not fall on deaf ears at BlogTO. Maybe they'll stand up to their sponsors and re-start Morning Brew while they're at it. They never did give a good explanation as to why they abandoned Torontonians like that, it was some pretty lively debate.

Not sure about their drinking and driving policies, clearly they get to keep their jobs regardless of behavior. I do know that Kathleen wynne, Justin Trudeau and many other liberals have admitted to smoking pot, guess it starts from the top.

What's good for the goose is clearly good for the gander with the Liberals. At least Ford is just one problem , and the lying and drug issues aren't rampant throughout the entire party like the liberals.
Jess replying to a comment from GusSam / April 9, 2014 at 02:42 pm

Too, we all know your name ain't change it not only daily, but minute by minute. Would love for you to do the same, but you're younger than me and hae more to lose I guess. question is this: what would Mayor Ford have to do in order for him to lose your support? Simple question, not so easy to answer.

And to give you some background, I was asked the same thing about my guy years ago. used Garth and Gus in the same ten minute period... replying to a comment from Gus / April 10, 2014 at 08:08 am

Dr. Kukko / April 10, 2014 at 10:49 am
All of you - Gus, Jess, Richard, Skippy, Safe Hands, etc., are a waste of time. You don't support someone effectively with off topic posts about Wynne, you alienate people. Boasting about Ford's acumen is also a waste of time - it's mindless advertising. Responding to you analytically is also a waste; for example, a forensic accounting analysis of Ford's 'billion dollar savings'? You are incapable of responding to such a post and blogto is not a serious forum.
Eugene replying to a comment from Dr. Kukko / April 10, 2014 at 11:08 am
Ahh so were allowed to talk about the Billion Dollar Savings BUT NOT about the Billion Dollar spending. I get it.

Kathleen Wynne represents the riding of Don Valley West for the Liberal Party. So posts about Wynne are very relevant to the GTA and the election.

Nameless Wonder replying to a comment from Too tarded to vote, apparently / April 10, 2014 at 11:46 am
That's what I've been asking all of you who is good? I support Ford, you're all still talking about Ford as well and not discussing any of the other candidates. I guess maybe I'm expecting to much from these posts that they'd actually create a dialog instead of just slamming Ford.

Here are a few points from Chows campaign this week you can search out for more details
1. "Olivia Chow endorses Toronto handgun ban"
2. "'I'm Not Male. Not White': Olivia Chow On How She'll Be Different"
3. "Mayoral candidate Olivia Chow reaching out to drivers with online poll this Friday"

Nameless Wonder / April 10, 2014 at 11:49 am
If I even post about another candidate its perceived as a distraction and deflection because you just want to keep in the "circus" tent talking about Ford. What about Chow? Tory? Stintz? Soknacki? You really don't care as long as its not Ford?

WTF? / April 10, 2014 at 12:21 pm
Is Chow starting to lose it? That's quite the generalization she's making when asked about Policy.

Asked by a Toronto Star reader about how she would be different than former mayor David Miller, Chow answered

"I'm not white. Not male. Want to start there?"

DANIEL DALE: That's True, but what about Politically?
Dr. Kukko / April 10, 2014 at 01:24 pm
You just couldn't resist coming out and demonstrating the idiocy of Ford supporters, could you.
I think you are confusing the provincial election with the municipal one. replying to a comment from Nameless Wonder / April 10, 2014 at 01:47 pm
Wow, you really are totally stupid, aren't you?

News flash, candidates from one level of gov't don't run in the other. Also, the events of one election have no bearing on the other. Otherwise, the PCs would have just won Quebec, because --as your pretzel-twisted, tinfoil hat crazy logic dictates-- Harper is in power.

Look, it's simple: Wynne is going to get turfed. The NDP or the NDP-Libs will replace her. Municipally, Chow, Tory or maybe long-shot Solnacki is going to trounce Ford. Not beat him, trounce him. If the spread isn't more than 15%, I'll buy you a couple of yards of ale.

But all this pissing and moaning and panty-soaking that you've been blathering on about for 2 months is as stupid as it is boring. You are convincing exactly no one. You are riling perhaps --what-- a half dozen people. And likely those that are exvery bit as shut-in and one-track mind, nut-job, bizarro axe-to-grind, likely-to-soon-be-on-the-6-o'clock-news-for-stabbing-some-ex-coworkers, friendless and demementedly FREAKBAG as you are, and who gives a toss about greasy mumbling socially outcast losers like that??

Honestly, buddy? People just don't care that passionately about politics as you do. Sure, it's fun sport, like debating the Leafs. But at the end of the day, the more nutty you get about it, the more people just want to move their beer mug a little farther away from you and try to start up a conversation with someone else much less intense. Less creepy.

So, go as nuts as you want on here. But people have rightly pegged you to be a weirdo, and I'm pretty sure that's clung to you like smell your entire life. You just don't quite fit...either in these circles or in conservative ones either. And that's why we're ignoring you, something you're likely all-to used to, amirite?

No, how about let's vote for a mayor with vision; not double vision. A homophobic, racist crack/boozehound may be the example you want for your children, but the non Tea-Baggering set would prefer someone intelligent and who loves Toronto more than they love the sight of their fat mug on Jimmy Kimmel. He is a loser who counts pencils and lunch bags; we want a mayor who knows how to lead the largest city in Canada.
