In one short statement, Toronto mayor Rob Ford managed to put forth the quote of the week and the Twitter hashtag of the day.

After months of speculation about the existence of a video showing the mayor smoking crack cocaine, the Toronto mayor finally admitted to having used the drug on Tuesday.

"Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine," Ford said to a group of reporters, adding that it was an isolated incident that occurred "probably in one of my drunken stupors."

It didn't take long for the Internet to jump on the statement. At the time of this post less than an hour after the admission, #InADrunkenStupor has generated several tweets, photos, and memes from bemused netizens.
