We all know Toronto is no stranger to interesting mayors, both past and present, (Rob Ford comes to mind) but rarely do the (former) Deputy Mayors get their time to, uh...shine?

Enter Norm Kelly, the 73 year old city councillor for Ward 40 and former right-hand man to Rob Ford. Although he had his brief stint in the spotlight when he temporarily took over for Ford when he went to rehab, nothing compares to the attention Norm has been getting lately for his fire tweets. If you're not one of the 108k people following @norm, you're missing out and here's why:
