Here are a few deep thoughts from Don Cherry during the swearing-in ceremony of newly elected Mayor of Toronto
Chris Farley, check that — Rob Ford. At Ford’s request, Don Cherry was asked to speak? We’re not sure why? Yikes.
“Actually I’m wearing pink for all the pinkos out there that ride bicycles and everything. I thought I’d get it in. What’d ya expect, Ron MacLean, here? To come here?”
“I’ve been bein’ ripped to shreds by the left-wing pinko newspapers out there. It’s unbelievable. One guy called me a pink…a jerk in a pink suit, so I thought I’d wear that for him too, today.”
“You know, it’s funny. In those articles I was made fun of ‘cause I go to church. I’m easy to do it that way. And I was called maudlin for the troops, because I honor the troops. This is the kinda, uh… You’re gonna be facin’, Rob, with these left-wing pinkos.”
“We need a famous, good-looking guy.” And I said, I’m your man, right?
“And that’s why I say he’s gonna be the greatest mayor this city has ever, ever seen, as far as I’m concerned! And put that in your pipe, you left-wing kooks.”
