Late Show host David Letterman's iconic top 10 list was devoted to Rob Ford's eight second pause in answering a question from a member of city council on whether the Toronto mayor ever purchased illegal drugs.

It was the top 10 things that were going through Ford's mind when he was considering his answer. Here is the list:

Number 10: "Is he talking to me?"

Number 9: "Oops."

Number 8: "Yes and I'd like some now."

Number 7: "What would a crack-smoking Winston Churchill say?"

Number 6: "No questions about Newfoundland?"

Number 5: "I don't remember, you should be talking to me crack dealer."

Number 4: "I"m not an addict, I'm just stupid."

Number 3: "Crack, Crack, Crack, Crack, Crack, Crack, Crack."

Number 2: "What answer gets me to Dairy Queen fastest?"

Number 1: "Help me, Canadian Jesus."
