Rob Ford Jimmy Kimmel

Rob Ford's St. Paddy's antics put him back on Kimmel

You'd think that Rob Ford segments on Jimmy Kimmel would have gotten old by now -- but, then again, you'd also think that at some point the Mayor would cease to provide so much fodder for the late night host. Neither has happened. The latest episode, of course, was Rob Ford's pre-St. Patrick's Day antics, which involved him reportedly stumbling and swearing outside city hall on Saturday night.

Arguably the best part, and the one that Kimmel capitalizes on, is the brief interview conducted by CTV's Natalie Johnson during the parade the next day. A somewhat horse-sounding Ford evades her question as to whether he was drinking the night before, which leads the host to make a plea on the Mayor's behalf. "Can't you see he's hungover? Leave the man alone!"

And then something involving a leprechaun and crack cocaine happens. Watch the vid to see how Ford is somehow the third figure in this bizarre trifecta.
