Toronto Law Firm sends out Ford-themed Christmas cards

So far, the reaction has been all positive...

Who says lawyers don't have a sense of humour?

A Christmas card being handed out by Toronto law firm Paliare Roland, features the now infamous picture of Mayor Rob Ford in front of 15 Windsor Road in Etobicoke.

The photo that accompanied the crack scandal surrounding the Mayor in May.

But this one has been changed.

It now features Ford as Santa Claus, Anthony Smith with a reindeer head and the other two people as elves.

It also has the text: "Seasons Greetings from Toronto, where we can’t comment on elves that we have not seen or which do not exist, but we wish everyone health, happiness and good things to believe in this holiday season and for 2014."

Partner at the firm, Andrew Lewis says they've been making humourous cards for 12 years, and this one has been very well received.

He says they've sent out about 4 thousand copies across the city, country and down into the US.

So far, he says, they haven't had anyone who hasn't gotten the joke.

      @sally Old news, all senior lawyers and politicians got the card, including Stephen Harper and the Supreme Court judges.

    Bitter. Like the Jon Stewart show and other late night cynicism. No thanks.
