TORONTO - Mayor Rob Ford's slurring and swearing Steak Queen video rant had Jimmy Kimmel cracking jokes on late-night TV Tuesday.

Ford admitted he's off the wagon on Tuesday after video surfaced online of him slamming Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair in Jamaican patois at Steak Queen in Etobicoke on Monday night.

That video and Ford's admission was plenty of fodder for Kimmel who has been following the mayor's escapades since the crack scandal broke last year.

"While we're on the subject of natural disasters have you seen the latest episode of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford?" Kimmel asked his audience in his opening monologue on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"Rob Ford has been quiet for a couple of months, he claims he has been exercising, he hasn't been drinking, he even hasn't done crack he says - and that's big for him because he loves crack. Unfortunately the streak of good behaviour appears to have ended last night."

Kimmel then ran a clip of the video of Ford's rant.

"It would appear that Mayor Ford speaks Jamaican too," he joked. "Just when you thought he couldn't possibly pull another nugget out of his bag of crazy he gets drunk and speaks Jamaican in a Steak Queen. When you're the best, that's what you do."

The U.S. comedian also touched on Councillor Doug Ford's rabid defence of his brother earlier in the day when he assured reporters the mayor wasn't drinking again.

"Doug Ford is like the most loyal brother in the world," Kimmel said.

Kimmel also questioned what Mayor Ford meant when he said he was drinking a "little bit."

"What's a little bit to Rob Ford, a pony keg?" he asked. "He's back folks, he's back for an all new season of Super Mayor."

He ended his Ford jokes with a shot at another Canadian celebrity.

"Thank you Canada, this almost makes up for Justin Bieber," Kimmel said.
