10 Things Rob Ford Actually Said [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ever heard of Rob Ford, the “open-mouth, insert foot” mayor of Toronto? A subject of many memes, parody skits, and overall internet ridicule, the shameless politician has added to his infamy in recent years — and we’re here to chronicle the best of them.

Lately, it appears the hot-headed mayor can’t stay away from hot water for too long – much in part to his eloquent spews, substance abuse scandals, and that all too familiar, ‘trampling over a councilwoman’ incident that he can’t seem to live down.

While we won’t say much on his political forte, we gotta give him credit — the man seems to find any excuse to party. Referring to recent allegations of his alcohol abuse, Ford simply offered the standard response of most wholesome politicos: “St. Patrick’s Day got a little out of control.” Been there, my friend.

We felt it was due time to honor Rob Ford’s inability to act honorably. Ergo, we present to you our latest infographic: an ode to the Toronto mayor’s most outrageous remarks!
