Ever since Toronto mayor Rob Ford completely lost his shit … and then lost it again … and then lost it again, pop culture lovers agree that the late comedian Chris Farley would have been the perfect guy to impersonate him.
The antics, the paunch, the gravelly voice: It almost seems cruel that Farley isn’t here to take on the role of a lifetime.
Farley’s brother Kevin, a fellow comedian, gave his stamp of approval.
I think it's safe to say that my brother would have crushed playing the Rob Ford guy on SNL.

On Saturday’s SNL Bobby Moynihan did a passable impression, but we can’t help but wonder how Chris could’ve done it better. We may not be able to see the real thing, but this Ford/Farley mash-up is somewhat of a consolation.
RIP, Tommy Boy.
