After months of speculation -- and days after police confirmed the existence of a long-rumored incriminating video -- Toronto Mayor Rob Ford finally admitted at a press conference Tuesday to having smoked crack cocaine, "probably a year ago," he thinks, "probably in a drunken stupor."

C'est vrai. RT @SrWHOfficial: Ford isn't in trouble so much for smoking crack, but failing to refer to it as "smoking crack/fume le craque".— Katie Drummond (@katiedrumm) November 5, 2013
Heck, I didn't think they even allowed crack in Canada. Messes up the healthcare costs.— ian bremmer (@ianbremmer) November 5, 2013
Probably in a drunken stupor when he made it. MT @robyndoolittle: The mayor's admission took his own staff by complete surprise.— Hayes Brown (@HayesBrown) November 5, 2013
But can Rob Ford lead?— Tim Murphy (@timothypmurphy) November 5, 2013
Last week I came home in a drunken stupor and bought a video game online. So Rob Ford's explanation makes sense to me.— Tom Ley (@ToLey88) November 5, 2013
Who among us hasn't gotten drunk and smoked crack while running a major city? Judge not lest etc.— Jon Lovett (@jonlovett) November 5, 2013
Rob Ford should pivot to Asia.— Jeffrey Goldberg (@JeffreyGoldberg) November 5, 2013
Not sure I even get that last one -- but I like it. Funny ones that we missed? Leave them in the comments or tweet at @ForeignPolicy.
