Crack-Smoking Mayor Rob Ford Calls in Sick on Bob Marley Day: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has declared Feb. 6 Bob Marley Day.

It coincides with Marley`s birthday. The Jamaican singer, who was born in 1945, died in 1981 at age 36. He would have been 69 Thursday.


It`s perhaps no surprise that Ford is a Marley fan. The mayor was seen in a video posted in December dancing to the song One Love during a council session."

It`s no surprise that the crack smoking mayor of Toronto is a fan of the ganja-loving reggae icon, and it`s also no surprise that Ford called in sick on the holiday celebrating the Jamaican singer`s legacy.

You don`t have to be a rocket scientist or Snoop Dogg to figure out that on Bob Marley Day Ford called in sick so he could spend the day honoring Marley by smoking weed and doing crack.

In America when we say that we would like to drink beer with a politician, it means that we believe that he is in touch with regular folks. In Toronto to declare that a politician is somebody you would love to share a joint with is the ultimate seal of approval.

I`m not gay or even metrosexual, but I would love to have a bromance with Rob Ford. Hanging out with the dancing, crack-smoking mayor would be a blast.
