Don’t expect Morrissey to show up at your next Thanksgiving feast anytime soon, meaning you can write him off for Christmas and Fourth of Ju-Luau as well.

Toronto's hard-partying, crack-smoking, football-throwing mayor is coming to a computer screen near you. Rob Ford, who has recently made headlines as his own City Council attempts to remove him from power.
