Get videotaped smoking crack? Check. Make a sexually explicit remark about your wife while denying you made a sexually explicit remark to a coworker? Check.

But knock over a City Council member while attempting to bum-rush a fellow government official? As of Monday, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford can check that box on his resume as well.

You stay classy, Toronto.
