Former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford hasn’t been in the public eye for quite some time, and that’s a shame. A damn shame, really. The man is responsible for some of the greatest moments in unintentional hilarity. Who could forget that time he tried to throw a football only to go T-I-M-B-E-R?
Speaking of football, remember that tie Ford used to wear? The one with the NFL logos? The one he wore when he admitted to smoking crack in the Toronto underground? Well, it sold at auction for $16,000. Yes, someone with an obscene amount of money (presumably) bought that ugly thing full of coke residue for $16k. That’s more or less proof that Ford is the most interesting man in the world.
It isn’t clear who bought the tie that the then mayor was wearing back in November 2013 when he finally confessed he had smoked crack “probably in one of my drunken stupors.”
The Etobicoke North (Ward 2) councillor’s office didn’t respond to a media request about the end of the auction on Wednesday. Ford himself is on vacation in Jamaica this week.
Wait, are there pics of Rob Ford on vacation in Jamaica? Because we need that in our lives.
Ford, by the way, briefly commented on the tie auction last week.
“I’m surprised someone would pay that much for a tie. We have some stuff coming down the pipe, pardon the pun.”
Rob Ford remains undefeated.
