Six spot-on Rob Ford parody Twitter accounts (plus one masterful fake Craigslist ad)
Mayor Rob Ford has a distinctively folksy way of speaking, a hot temper, a knack for saying dumb things and now an (alleged) crack scandal blowing up in his face. In other words, he’s a satirist’s dream and the Internet has stepped up to the challenge. Below, seven Rob Ford send-ups that may make you feel better about Toronto’s mayoral troubles—for a moment, anyway.
Schtick: Rob Ford in rage-mode, with a healthy splash of neanderthal.

Schtick: A parallel universe Rob Ford who happens to be thin—and a little rambling, frankly. However, he has, hands down, the best profile picture of the bunch.

Schtick: The mayor as barely coherent idiot with a propensity for very specific Google searches.

Schtick: Okay, it’s not lampooning Rob Ford, but this potty-mouthed, bro-ish, drug-dealing, van-driving, Doors-listening teenaged Doug Ford has a lot to say about his brother.
Oh, I just wanna say again that Rob is sorry. We'll tell you what he's sorry for as soon as the cops release that information #topoli

Schtick: Hilariously short dispatches from inside the mind of the mayor.
How come nobody wants to talk about my spooky halloween office? #TOPoli

Link: “Biermarket, St. Paddy’s Day 2012. You: big bear – m4m”
Schtick: A clever, slightly dirty fake Craiglist missed connection from someone pretending to have fallen for Ford during his St. Paddy’s day binge in 2012.
