Now on eBay: Rob Ford's Crack Tie

You can buy many things on the Internet, and one of them is now the garish tie Rob Ford wore to the press conference in which he confessed he might be more than abstractly familiar with a substance we like to call crack cocaine, albeit only in a "drunken stupor." The former Hizzoner, who is battling an aggressive cancer, has as of yesterday listed various such treasures on eBay, including aforementioned tie, which is currently going for nearly $2,600. Per the listing: "You are bidding on an original piece of memorabilia from former Toronto Mayor, and current Toronto Councillor Rob Ford." It comes with a "Certificate of Authenticity from Councillor Rob Ford himself."

Also up for grabs: Some kind of weird moose-print jammies Ford apparently "was seen wearing on a shopping trip to Wal-Mart"; a "Keep Calm and Carry On" sign that Ford "added as a decoration to the Mayor's Office in January, 2014"; and a Saskatchewan Roughriders jersey that "he got while attending a game in July of 2013 (Size 4XL)." But as Gawker notes: "Caveat emptor, eager Rob Ford collectors: torontorobford currently has a feedback score of 0." (More Rob Ford stories.)
