TORONTO — Mayor Rob Ford is back and so are the late-night jabs.

Ford returned to City Hall Monday after taking a two-month leave of absence to work through issues with substance abuse. Jimmy Kimmel made sure that he circled the day on his calendar.

“Do you remember the smile on little Karen’s face when Frosty the Snowman came back to life?” said Kimmel. “Well that’s kind of how I felt today when the honourable Mayor Rob Ford returned to the city of Toronto.”

The comedic host quipped that he missed “the sweaty pink man.”

Ford sparked some controversy by holding an invite-only press conference with approximately 20 members of the media present. Although Kimmel noted Ford’s apologetic tone, the host also poked fun at the mayor’s weight loss by editing a body builder’s torso onto Ford’s head.
