My, What a Classy Place Toronto Has Become

Rob Ford, in a Walmart, in pajama pants. Our Mayor. #TOpoli #toronto (via my wife's FB friend)


Someone just defended this, saying 'Everyone fucking does it'.

Well, hush my mouth. Having never been in a WalMart, I'll have to defer to the fashion customs of that tribe.

*gobsmacked*

Yeah, everyone does it...if you consider this everyone, http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/

Except, you know you might expect a bit more decorum from our mayor...if he wasn't Rob F#$%ing Ford.

Yeesh. People of WalMart. Don't click if you're sqeamish.

If I looked like that in my PJs, I wouldn't go out in public in them either. It's not an easy look to pull off... you have to be a lot smaller than Hizzoner to do it justice.

Walmart... what can I say. But believe it or not, this is probably part of what got him elected in the first place. Now after his recent fisticuffs with Marg Delahunty, he's returning to the Temple of His Faithful to rally support.

I'm probably jealous. PJ pants are always way too long on me. At home, I roll them up because hemming jammies is just Wrong. ;-)

Nice clothes are gravy.

Eh. Fashion is oppression. ;) If Ford had campaigned against *fashion*, well, then...

Wow! I feel kind of like a fool when Canada Post delivers a package and I'm still in PJs.

I think it's an s+m thing... his wife 'er Mistress made him do it.

Pedgehog wins the thread.

Has anybody checked out the new City of Toronto recycling posters on the TTC?

Is Rob Ford moon-lighting as the "Waste Wizard"???

Have a look at the Waste (Waist?) Wizard.

As a Montrealer, this is pretty much what I always thought your Upper Canadian fashion looked like.

honestly that's not that big a deal even if he is Mayor. Wal-Mart can attract some truly disastrous fashions. If that's the worst that we're seeing we're getting off good Canada. I've lived in the states. I'm talking BIG girls wearing styles suited for small girls. I'm talking dudes that would make you check your surroundings normally wearing footie pajamas.

I'm not sure how i feel about Wal-Mart in Kensington but this isn't the picture you want to use for your argument. Trust me. This ain't persuading nothing.
