We live in an era of divisive politics. Here we have another muck-raking politician diving into the shallow end and appealing to that lowest common denominator voting block: people who don’t like pineapple on pizza.
Iceland’s President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson is the latest to drop the bombshell that he does not believe in the science that suggests pineapple belongs on pizza.
Guðni was in Northern Iceland at a highschool when someone asked the President to weigh in on the politically sensitive topic. During his visit he took questions from the students and one student asked him his views on pineapple and pizza. Here is his answer as reported in Iceland Magazine: Guðni answered that he was fundamentally opposed to putting pineapple on top of a pizza.
Then he went one step further, announcing that he would pass a ban on pineapple as a pizza topping if he had the power to pass laws on his own.
Brutal. And shockingly, some Canadians AGREE with the Icelandic President. Ryan Biech at CanucksArmy/Daily Hive said he’d move to the winter Island.
Thankfully, the Icelandic Constitution protects the people from such a draconian measure.
Here is the news story if you read Icelandic.
***UPDATE*** The President of Iceland shared a statement with the Canadian Broadcast Corporation.
