Twitter reacts to Rob Ford's removal from office

Naturally, it didn't take long for the obligatory Ford jokes to surface. There are currently at least two spoof Craigslist posts on the subject and one weird cardboard cutout in Nathan Phillips Square. Here are some of the best reactions seen online today:
