Somebody recently posted a review on Imgur of a strain of marijuana that was supposedly named after former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. "Although the name sounds like it won't get the job done, this is a very powerful indica dominant strain," it said.
So the folks at Toronto's CityNews decided to be cute and ask Ford on Twitter what he thought of this.
Ford responded the next day with this:
Better send some aloe vera to CityNews...
Ford's Twitter account had never been so interesting. It seemed that Ford — or whoever is running his account — was suddenly really good at Twitter. So we decided to ask him some burning questions from our daily lives.
He seemed to understand our workplace.
He was at times profound.
We asked him to help explain Internet slang, and he hashtagged us an answer.
He showed a deep understanding of memes.
Rob Ford compared High School Musical to Grease.
Some other journalists tried to hijack our conversation, and Ford responded to them, too.
Twitter Rob Ford seemed to have a response for everything.
