Rob Ford Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel celebrates a Rob Ford Christmas

Just when you thought Rob Ford had slipped off the radar of the late night talk show hosts, Jimmy Kimmel reminds us that, if nothing else, our mayor remains the most excellent fodder for comedy. Case in point: the way this guy gives out candy at parades, something you'd think would be tough to screw up. Have you ever seen how he does this? He doesn't hand the candy out so much as throw or dump it on the ground beside the kids. As Kimmel says, "it's as though he's feeding pigeons or something." Bingo!

The clip, which aired Monday before eventually making its way online, also features an overdubbed Rob Ford playing the part of the evil mayor (Burgermeister) of Sombertown in the Christmas classic Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. Have a watch.

On last night's show, Kimmel was back on the subject of Ford, this time to thank him for all the wonderful material he's provided talk show hosts this year. By way of gratitude, he offered this 12 Days of Rob Ford clip.

Editor's note: the first clip was removed from YouTube. We have replaced it with a new one, but it doesn't contain the first part of the monologue.
