Quoted: Mayor Rob Ford on whether or not he sleeps on the job
Oh, buddy, that’s not how I sleep.
—Rob Ford telling Toronto Sun reporter Don Peat that an Imgur picture (right) that appears to catch him sleeping on the job is, in fact, not a picture of him sleeping on the job. “I’m not sleeping,” Ford told him. “You know what this is ridiculous. This is during the 24-hour meeting when deputants are every three minutes. It is so farfetched it is not even funny.” Peat asked the mayor about the picture after Ford and councillor Giorgio Mammoliti went to the media yesterday with a different photo that reportedly shows a Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation worker snoozing while on the public dime (left). The pair threatened to fire the individual, even if he was on a break or ill. We’re sure, however, that the city worker can save his job if he just tells the mayor, “Buddy, that’s not how I sleep.”
