TORONTO – This Christmas, Jimmy Kimmel wants you to sing “The 12 Days of Ford.” Rob Ford, that is.

“Rob Ford has been, this year anyway, the greatest gift any talk show host could ever ask for. Everyday he brings us something news,” Kimmel said. “He’s given us so much that I wanted to give something back.”

What’s Kimmel giving back? A rewritten “12 Days of Christmas” highlighting some of the mayor’s more memorable moments.

It includes – among other things – his denial of crack use, his admission of crack use, his football folly, and him knocking over city councillor Pam McConnell.

Ford has become a go-to joke for many American comics since his admission of crack use in October. Since then, he’s been lambasted several times on Kimmel’s show as well as Jimmy Fallon and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
