Last Saturday night after I watched the Saturday Night Live sketch about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, I said to my husband, “Chris Farley would’ve nailed that character.” Even though I have over 24,000 tweets, and ton’s of GetGlue check-ins, I didn’t even think to Tweet that.

I could’ve started a ‘meme‘. But alas, someone else did. When the thought occurred to Chris’s brother, Kevin Farley (@Imkevinfarley) and he put it out there on Twitter, it sort of put an official stamp or blessing if you will, on the Farley / Ford comparison.

What’s been great is that Chris’s body of comedic work is honored and not his substance activity. Ford is a buffoon. Chris excelled at playing one. But unlike Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, Chris’s buffoon was always lovable and always learned a lesson in morals. Too bad we can’t say the same thing about the Mayor.

Here’s a great trailer to the ‘would-be’ movie if Toronto Mayor Ford was played by the beloved Chris Farley. Enjoy... 🙂
