Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's removal from office due to a conflict of interest has his critics on Twitter hankering for some gravy.
During the 2010 municipal election, Ford promised to halt Toronto's "gravy train," referring to what he deemed wasteful spending at city hall. His time in office became synonymous with the phrase. His team even created a T-shirt to drive the point home (The shirts cost $30).
Today the catchphrase caught up to Ford as some Torontonians rejoiced in the mayor's removal from office on Twitter.
