Jimmy Fallon gets in on the Rob Ford fun

What do you do when you take over the Tonight Show and want to make sure that your monologues don't fall flat in the first week? Why talk about Rob Ford, of course. Jimmy Fallon, just a few days into his new role as Jay Leno's replacement, kicked off his show last night with a few Rob Ford funnies. The news story to which he refers is a bit dubious (or at least dated), but in fairness, Fallon does note what a goldmine our mayor has been for late night comedy and is clearly just going for something that he knows will be good for a few laughs.

After a bit of physical comedy, the host proceeds to preview some spoofs of Ford's new election posters. The routine pales in comparison to the heights that Jon Stewart reached, but if you like Fallon, you'll like the PG way he lays into the mayor. It is getting a bit old, but it's still fascinating watch what a kick Americans get from this story.
