Get video­taped smoking crack? Check. Make a sexu­ally ex­pli­cit re­mark about your wife while deny­ing you made a sexu­ally ex­pli­cit re­mark to a cowork­er? Check.

But knock over a City Coun­cil mem­ber while at­tempt­ing to bum-rush a fel­low gov­ern­ment of­fi­cial? As of Monday, Toronto May­or Rob Ford can check that box on his re­sume as well.

Dur­ing a City Coun­cil meet­ing over a pro­pos­al to pare down his may­or­al powers, Ford be­came en­raged with a speak­er and at­temp­ted to rush him. In the pro­cess, however, he ran in­to coun­cil mem­ber Pam Mc­Con­nell, send­ing her tum­bling to the floor.

You stay classy, Toronto.
