Rob Ford’s stumbling, swearing St. Patrick’s Day weekend makes Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Rob Ford no longer has most of his mayoral powers, but he clearly has some kind of mystical, muse-like power over Jimmy Kimmel, who yet again included a Ford update in his monologue during Monday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!. (The nice thing about being a U.S. comedian, as opposed to a Canadian reporter, is that you can speculate on whether or not the mayor is hungover without having to worry about it turning into a libel suit.) The video is above.

Kimmel is expected to make a Skype appearance on Rob and Doug Ford’s weekly YouTube show in the near future, at which point we’ll presumably get to see what it looks like when the Fords try to outwit a professional wit. Do they think it’s going to be as easy as arm-wrestling Hulk Hogan?
