But on this Sunday, it was Mayor Rob Ford and his brother, Coun. Doug Ford, taking seats opposite each other on the classic playground toy.
"I got you!," the mayor said, before his brother went on to tell reporters about their sibling see-saw rivalry of days past.
"I'd sit all the way down, he'd be up in the air and I'd just jump off and let him go bang," said Coun. Ford.
"Torture," the mayor said.
The mayor and his brother were at The Elms Park, where a new Tyrannosaurusrex-themed playground has been built.
