Rob Ford enters battle of wits with Kevin Spacey – and loses

Rob Ford has many admirable qualities. Well, maybe not admirable. Let’s call them “useful” qualities. Like his tenacity, his determination, his . . . let’s say tenacity again. Point is, his wit is not one of his strong suits. When god was dealing out the brain cards, Rob Ford didn’t get the best hand. And yet he always goes all in, which I find hysterically funny.

Case in point: Ford felt the need to take on Kevin Spacey in a battle of wits after Spacey refused to take a picture with him when the two were visiting Jimmy Kimmel Live. Like all mature adults, Ford decided that the best course of action would be to complain about it on his YouTube vlog with his brother.

According to CBC, Rob and Doug Ford took turns taking potshots at Spacey, with Rob saying he wouldn’t know him “if I ran him over,” while Doug called him “an arrogant SOB.” In all fairness, Spacey did make American Beauty, while Ford made a video where he rambled in a Jamaican patois in a fast-food restaurant. Apples and oranges is what I’m saying.

In response, Spacey fired back on Twitter by posting the above photo, along with the caption, “When did Mayor Ford start doing what people tell him to do? All you had to do was ask, guys. Here’s your pic.”

BLAMMO! You just got Kevin Spacey’ed, motherfucker.
