Rob Ford Turns Jamaican

Via the Telegraph:

Another video of scandal plagued Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has appeared online, in which he appears to be inebriated. The mayor slurs and swears at staff, while apparently trying to imitate a Jamaican accent. The person who uploaded the video to YouTube wrote that it was shot at a fast-food restaurant in Rexdale in the northwest area of Toronto on Monday. Confronted by reporters, Mr Ford acknowledged the footage was shot late on Monday and admitted he had been drinking. “A little bit, yeah,” he said.

Canada’s National Post has a translation of the Jamaican terms. They note: “This is the first time Mr. Ford has ever been seen to inject his public speech with Jamaican expressions, or even exhibit any knowledge of Jamaican English.”
