R.T. Rybak cracks awesome Rob Ford joke as he prepares for official unauguration
The day after Betsy Hodges was elected, St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman gave her this advice: "Whatever you do, you don't want to take lessons from the mayor of Toronto."

He was speaking, of course, of Rob Ford, the colorful, crack-smoking mayor of Toronto.
Hodges is being sworn in today, and as R.T. Rybak prepares to officially become the former mayor, he took a moment to crack a pretty awesome joke that also references Ford:
Only a couple hours left. Must...suppress...inner...Rob...Ford

It sounds like R.T. might've gotten his inner Rob Ford out of him in high school, when he admittedly smoked his share of weed. During a recent interview, R.T. said he eventually gave the green stuff up because it left him feeling depressed.
