"Like an 800-pound gorilla on their backs"

Doug Ford is not afraid to poke fun at himself or his size. He has referred to himself as an "800-pound gorilla" on more than one occasion. The first time Ford did so was in late May of 2020, when provincial COVID testing rates were not what they should be. When asked about the testing numbers, the Premier said, "Am I frustrated? Yeah I am frustrated but I have confidence in the team. I will be like an 800-pound gorilla on their backs every single day if I have to until I see these numbers go up."

His new favorite expression

Ford used the expression again when asked if he'd been in contact with Education Minister Stephen Lecce. "I called the Minister the other day four times. I'm onto him like an 800-pound gorilla, and he's a little guy."

"God knows I need a little bit of exercise myself"

In May 2020, the public was eager to know if golf courses would be opening back up. Doug Ford made sure that the public knew he understood their struggles saying: "I understand people want to get out there and get a little bit of fresh air and a little bit of exercise," he then looked at his sizeable midsection and added, "God knows I need a little bit of exercise myself."

"I've eaten one too many cheesecakes. That's my problem."

The Premier couldn't resist bragging about his "best-ever" cheesecake last spring in a press conference when asked about the shortage of goods in grocery stores.
"We will make sure we have those [baking supplies] on the shelves, it's so important. And by the way, I make the best cherry cheesecake ever." And true to his self-deprecating style added, "And you can tell I've eaten one too many cheesecakes. That's my problem."

"I look like a sheepdog"

During the initial lockdown back in the spring of 2020, things started to get ugly...literally. The public was very upset over not being able to go to hairdressers or beauty salons, and Doug Ford wasn't thrilled about it either. On May 14 of 2020, he said: "Look at my hair, I look like a sheepdog right now. I think a dog groomer, I should go there and get a little clip myself."

"A bunch of yahoos"

Doug Ford loves to use the word "yahoos." It is basically his politically correct way of calling people "a**holes." Whenever a group of people has been caught misbehaving during the pandemic, the Premier has referred to them as "yahoos." On April 25th, 2020, in regards to anti-lockdown protesters, Ford said, "But then we have a bunch of yahoos out in the front of Queen's Park sitting there protesting that the place isn't open."

"The cheese slipped off the cracker..."

Another unintentional Ford zinger is when he commented on some individuals caught holding a house party in Brampton in July 2020. On the 27th of July, Doug Ford commented on the issue, saying, "...you'd think the cheese slipped off the cracker with these people."

"I'd send you to the MRI to get your brain scanned because I just don't think there's anything in there."

Later, in September in 2020, Ford really let some of Ontario's "yahoos" have it! When hundreds of people attended a street-racing meet-up in Ancaster, the Premier lost his patience. Doug Ford practically shouted at a media briefing, "If we weren't so backlogged on MRIs, I'd send you to the MRI to get your brain scanned because I just don't think there's anything in there."

"You can bully a man..."

Related to the Ancaster street-racing incident, a journalist asked Ford's opinion on the issue of female reported who was bullied by men attending the rally. Ontario's Premier was quick to state that men can only bully men, never women. "Bully a woman? You can bully a man, but bully a woman? You guys are tough guys? You're unbelievable. That is weak. Weak, weak cowards. Get your act together."

"A few fries short of a happy meal"

Over the past year, one thing has been made clear: Doug Ford doesn't have patience for those that break lockdown rules. When the Premier spoke about those who continued to host large get-togethers despite restrictions saying, "They're a few fries short of a happy meal."

Calling joints "doobies"

Given Doug Ford's comments over the past year, we definitely think he isn't into pot. We all know he loves a cold beer, but he sure sounds awkward when he talks about weed! In August 2020, when asked about fines for having a brewsky in a public park, Ford said: "They're making it legal to go out and smoke a joint, a doobie, a reefer, whatever the heck they call it nowadays... [so] if a couple of guys are sitting there quietly at a picnic bench having a cold little beer, who cares?"

"I don't have time for politics"....says the politician!

This quote isn't so funny as it is ridiculous! To hear Ontario's top politician say he didn't have time for politics was just absurd! On September 10th there was considerable drama regarding the Legislative Assembly. When commenting on the matter, Premier Doug Ford said, "I hope the tone of the opposition is collaborative, I don't care what colour of party you're from... we need to work together. I just hope they don't play politics, I don't have time for politics."

"There's a whole world outside Toronto"

On August 17th, 2020, Doug Ford shocked Torontonians by informing them that "There's a whole world outside of Toronto." Unfortunately, those that live in the more rural parts of Ontario have seen first-hand that the Premier doesn't honestly believe this.

Parties = "... spitting and every other thing they can possibly think of."

It would seem that back in the day, Doug Ford went to some pretty bizarre parties. When the Premier has spoken to the press about social gatherings, his description of what goes on at parties has been just plain weird. On September 17th,2020  he spoke of "...wild backyard parties where people are drinking, hugging, kissing, spitting, every other thing they can possibly think of."

"...going hog wild swinging off the trees"

In the same statement on Sept. 17th, Ford then compared parties to weddings saying that the parties were far worse, calling them: "free -for-all parties where everyone is going hog wild swinging off the trees and everything." We certainly went to some ragers in our younger years but never to a spitting free for all party with people swinging off trees!

"No more hunky dory, kumbaya"

In January of 2021, Ford came with a few more classic lines that cracked the public up. He contacted President Joe Biden in an appeal for aid with delivering the Pfizer vaccine to Ontario: "That’s a direct message to President Biden. Help out your neighbour. No more hunky dory, kumbaya. Help us out. I’m asking you for help.”

"I’d be up that guy’s yin yang so far with a firecracker..."

In the same statement in January 2021, Doug Ford also spoke about what he'd do to get more Pfizer vaccines if he were the Prime Minister instead of Justin Trudeau.
"Nothing is more important than getting these vaccines. If I was in his shoes, which I’m sure he’s doing it, I’d be on the phone every day. I’d be up that guy’s yin yang so far with a firecracker, he wouldn’t know what hit him. I would not stop until we get these vaccines.”
