It’s the last day of MARDI GRAS. The hedonistic celebration is supposed to stop for 40 days during Lent. Not going to happen. You know, the City of Toronto has Rob Ford as it’s Mayor. They’ve stripped him of almost all of his powers, he drinks, he make rude remarks about his wife, he smokes crack, he hangs out with gangs and he won’t go away. Who’d have guessed that he inspired one of the floats at MARDI GRAS? Enjoy the day and the post. The pics are from New Orleans, Galvinston, Rio, San Paulo and Venice.

    Ford is indelible confirmation that society has dumbed down and lowered the bar on intelligence. Like all things that eventually come to our culture from down south, the walking reality show called the Ford brothers is just recognition of how vulnerable and gullible we are.

    If taking drugs is a reason not to vote for someone, you better stay at home on election day. I don’t know what else the guy did, but people going on about PRIVAAAATE decisions that basically don’t hurt anyone seems a bit unfair. Professional performance should be the only relevant thing, everything else is moronic, unprofessional gossiping. How hard would you laugh if I told you, your Blog sucks because you smoke weed, or drink coffee/beer?

      If taking drugs and drinking too much ruled out everyone who could hold public office, then there would be nobody running for public office.

      When drugs and alcohol abuse negatively affect your ability to do your job, and you deny that it affecting you professionally, then there is a problem. The Rob and Doug Ford road show is pathetic at best. A Gong Show in the worst possible way. His PRIVATE decisions affect a city of over 2.5 million people with a 10.8 billion dollar gross operating budget (3.7 billion dollars net). He is on record of driving drunk (admitted at a press conference), texting on an expressway going through Toronto which is illegal here, on record of crudely insulting his wife publicly at a press conference where he was apologizing for being caught lying again, domestic abuse investigations, ongoing police investigation into his behaviour, shows up for work at noon and leaves at 4:00, he cannot intellectually do his job, the city council have stripped him of almost ALL of his Mayoralty powers and so on. He is a perfect model of idiocy/lunacy on two feet.

      I get a lot of people who tell me that my blog sucks. I tell them all the same thing, “If you don’t like it, don’t come here. I have almost 8 million visits in less than 3 years, so somebody likes what I’m doing.” Blogging is done for myself first and the audience second. It’s a hobby that I enjoy. I’ve turned down advertising companies for over 2 years because this for fun and not profit.

      So I do chuckle at them because I really do not care what haters think. Nobody makes a hater visit any site. I am long past the stage where strangers negative opinions matter to me.

    You help me get through my week. You help me start & end my days with a laugh.
    Ignore what those who think anything outside of themselves is rubbish.

    Stay Odd, my friend, Stay Odd
