Welcome to Toronto Sun Cover Reviews, a blog on which I post daily reviews of Toronto Sun covers.

4 May 2010
Front and centre: A wealthy fat man throws his possessions into the garbage. Rob Ford, mayoral candidate and Orientalist, is ecstatic that city councillors will no longer get free Metropasses, Toronto Zoo passes or tickets to the Sony Centre following a recent Canada Revenue Agency audit. Doesn't he look imposing, towering over the garbage can like some sort of intolerant Garbage Deity? Is the photographer in the garbage can? Are we? No more free ride, my friends! From now on, if Rob Ford wants to admire an elephant or a Liza Minnelli extravaganza he'll just have to pay admission like the rest of us commoners.
Top: Two lady war veterans share a laugh in Holland during a remembrance service. They are laughing because they know they are on top of a wealthy fat man throwing his possessions into the garbage. Also: $3.5 million will buy you tickets to as many Liza Minnelli concerts as you can stand. And: If throwing your possessions into the garbage were a sport, Rob Ford would be one of T.O.'s BEST athletes.
Bottom: The Arizona Bar & Grill has it all: a DJ, great food, UFC matches and the chance to win a "ladies diamond ring." It's like an orgasm you can walk around in.
Summary: The garbage can has a slimming effect on Rob Ford, wouldn't you say?
The Toronto Sun is the city of Toronto's most reactionary/hilarious newspaper, with a broad readership that includes everyone from old men who wear track pants and fish in the Don River to young women with Support Our Troops tramp stamps.
