At this point I don't think it's possible to be surprised by the antics of Rob Ford, nor do I think anyone should be dumbfounded if Toronto re-elects this clown to a second term as mayor.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted to drinking alcohol Monday night, after a YouTube video appeared today showing him at a restaurant swearing, mumbling and speaking in Jamaican patois.

At the Steak Queen restaurant at 345 Rexdale Blvd. in Etobicoke, Ford is seen standing at the service counter speaking to a group of people, some of whom appear to be restaurant staff.

Throughout much of the minute-long video, titled "New Video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Drunk, Swearing in Jamaican Patois," Ford attempts to use Jamaican slang, using the word "bumbaclot" — profanity in patois — at least four times.

The mayor admitted he was drinking alcohol. "A little bit, yeah," he told reporters. He had pledged numerous times he does not drink anymore, after revelations in 2013 of his crack use while in office.

When asked if his Jamaican accent was offensive, he said no. "I met some friends. If I speak that way, that's how I speak with some of my friends and no, i don't think it's discriminative at all," he said. "It's my own time."
