Rob Ford Wife

Rob Ford dazzles with advice on giving gifts to women

The ever quotable Rob Ford offered up another wonderful soundbite for our delectation this morning during an appearance on the Washington-based sports radio show The Sports Junkies. When asked what he'll be getting his wife Renata for the holidays, the Mayor replied with some sage advice for gift givers out there. "Probably just money," he said. "Women love money... You give 'em a couple thousand bucks and they're happy."

Where to begin? While I realize that this is just Ford doing the Joe average thing, and that he means no offence, it's still amazing to witness someone who seemingly lacks any ability to censor himself for the sake of decency and good taste. No, this isn't about fellatio or misplaced remarks about women and politics, but it's still way off the mark in its determination to group women together under one cash-loving heading. Oh, and for the record, cash isn't just a shitty gift, it's a non-gift.

What do you think? Are these remarks offensive or just the chatter of a uniformed man? Both?
