And Ford himself — in an unusual show of goodwill for the journalists he has so often criticized — blew reporters a kiss as he gave students a tour of his office.
It began Monday, a day before the mayor admitted he has used the drug while in what he called one of his “drunken stupors.”
While journalists waited for Ford to emerge, a man dressed in a bright yellow banana suit strolled into the mayor’s office, pushing a cart full of fruit.
He later told reporters the delivery was meant to promote “health and wellness.”
One of the mayor’s fans later came to his defence, interrupting a media scrum with a councillor with insistent shouts that Ford is being unfairly condemned, until he was removed by security.
That’s when the mayor received a surprise visit from a former professional wrestler — the second to confront Ford this year.
The Iron Sheik said he came to challenge the mayor to an arm-wrestling match, the same battle Ford won against wrestler Hulk Hogan this summer.
“If he can beat me, then he’s a man,” the wrestler said as the mayor, still in his office, appeared to mimic throwing a football.
Hours later, another former wrestler dropped by city hall.
Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake said he wished to urge Ford to embrace healthier eating habits but was kicked out after security objected to his prop shears.
The wrestler called himself Ford’s “angel of mercy” and said the mayor needs “an intervention” and should get help.

6 hunters mistakenly shot as deer hunting season begins!
Ontario Provincial Police are reminding hunters about the importance of firearm safety after six accidental shootings involving hunters less than a week into deer hunting season.
Central Hastings OPP said the first incident happened around 8:40 a.m. Monday, when a 42-year-old man was accidentally shot in the arm while hunting with a group in Tudor and Cashel Township, near Bancroft.
They said he was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries.
The second happened on Maple Road in Odessa, where a 55-year-old man was accidentally shot, according to police.
The third happened on Weedmark Road in Montague, northeast of Smiths Falls, when police said they were called to a 59-year-old man’s accidental shooting around 6:45 p.m.
In all of the cases, no charges are going to be laid.
There was another accidental shooting Tuesday near Peterborough. OPP said a 17-year-old boy was accidentally shot in the shoulder by someone else in their hunting party.
He was taken to hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries. Again, no charges will be laid.
Then, on Thursday, OPP sent out releases about two accidental shootings involving hunters that day.
The first happened just before noon at a property on County Road 34 in North Glengarry Township.
A 75-year-old man from the township was hunting when his firearm accidentally discharged, injuring him.
He was taken to hospital in serious but non-life-threatening condition.
The second happened after 2:30 p.m. the same day at 1935 County Rd. 43 in North Grenville.
A 23-year-old man was found in the bush with a shoulder wound, and was airlifted to The Ottawa Hospital’s Civic campus with a non-life-threatening injury.
In both cases, foul play isn’t suspected and the investigations are ongoing.


Beer consumption is a boon for the Canadian economy — and that’s not just the alcohol talking.
According to a report from the Conference Board of Canada, the brewing, transportation, sale and consumption of beer contributes $13.8 billion to the country’s economy, or nearly one per cent of GDP.
“Beer has been a part of Canadian life for hundreds of years,” said the conference board’s Pedro Antunes. “The beer economy is a significant employer. No matter where people buy beer, they support jobs across the country.”


The study found the beer industry supports 163,200 jobs in Canada, meaning one out of every 100 jobs is beer-related.
01067539064137_highUnlike in other countries, the Canadian beer industry is highly domestic. Roughly 85 per cent of beer consumed in the country is produced here.
The economic benefits of the industry appear to be spread out across the country; brewing is concentrated in central Canada, while the Prairie provinces produce grain for beer, and the Maritimes are a hub of manufacturing and transportation.
In terms of consumption, the report found beer drinking was most prevalent in the Yukon, followed by Newfoundland and Labrador.
Pint by numbers
  • Beer is the most popular alcoholic beverage in Canada, accounting for 45 per cent of all alcohol sales and 8.1 per cent of total household expenditures on food and drink.
  • Canadians drink roughly 23 million hectolitres of beer annually, our roughly 80 litres per capita.
  • The beer economy brings in $5.8 billion in municipal, provincial and federal tax revenue.
  • Yukon residents drank the most beer, at roughly 385 bottles per capita per year. British Columbians drank the least beer per capita, at 205 bottles annually.

AN IPAD AIR reportedly exploded in a Vodafone shop in Australia, bursting into flames and causing the store to be exacuated.
apple-ipad-air-display-270x167News website reported that an iPad Air demo model “burst into flames” inside a Vodafone store in Canberra, Australia.
“The whole thing melted when one of the customers used the device to surf some Internet porn!” according to a store employee.
The fire apparently was so severe that the fire brigade had to be called and the store had to be evacuated after filling with smoke, according to a Vodafone representative.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, reports added that following the apparent explosion the iPad Air appeared completely destroyed. Thankfully the iPad Air reportedly was the only thing harmed in the explosion and nobody was injured.
Apple has yet to comment on the report, but it’s claimed that a representative from the firm went to pick up the exploded iPad for examination to figure out what caused it to catch fire. (We just told you silly ……………….., it was the hot porn! -Ed.)


A European satellite that ran out of fuel will start falling in the next few days, and fragments of the disintegrating 2,000-pound spacecraft are expected to strike the Earth’s surface.
Nobody knows where or when the fragments will hit, but the European Space Agency has said some parts are likely to fall into the ocean or unpopulated areas………, but as a precaution the world’s population is advised to stay indoors over the weekend!.
Re-entry probably will occur Sunday or Monday, Rune Floberghagen, mission manager for the Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Explorer, better known as GOCE, told the Perspective Research Department.
Potential spots will be narrowed down closer to re-entry, ESA said on its website.
