Toronto’s mayor, Rob Ford, was caught off-guard by a comedy team called This Hour Has 22 Minutes.
One of the fictional characters on CBC’s This Hour is Marg Delahunty.
She plays a “warrior princess journalist” who often confronts politicians in a funny way.
She “ambushes” them and talks to them about the issues of the day. It’s meant to be funny but often insightful, too.
Last week she tried to ambush Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in the driveway of his home.
There are two sides to the story of what happened next.
According to Marg Delahunty (comedian Mary Walsh in real life), their camera crew ambushed the mayor at 8:30 a.m., in daylight, and in her typical loud-mouthed way she started offering the mayor some advice.
She was trying to tell him that “we bombastic buffoons should stick together.”
