President of Iceland Says He Would Ban Pineapple on Pizza If He Could

The Fuckin' Stones On This Guy

In a recent Q & A session at an Icelandic high school, a student asked Iceland's President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson how he felt about pineapple as a topping on pizza.

Before we move forward to Jóhannesson's answer, can we reflect on what a scrub JV question that is?  You have one moment to ask the most powerful person in your country, your leader, your president, a question, and you BLOW it!  Listen, I can appreciate trying to lighten the mood and add some humor as much as anyone, but a pizza topping question? I'm not on board.

Anyway, Jóhannesson answers the question and says that if he had the power to pass laws, he would ban putting pineapple on pizza.


Do NOT sleep on pineapple as a viable topping.  I'm saying this as someone who was once a hater on the idea.  I wouldn't even give it a chance.  "Ew," I would mutter, "that doesn't go together."  But then I thought to myself, "Paul, why be so close minded, give the pineapple a chance."

So I gave it a chance, and do you know what.....I REALLY LIKE IT.

By no means am I saying that it is the best topping choice, however, if when ordering pizza in a group, and someone asks, "Should we get a Hawaiian pie?" I'll ALWAYS respond with, "....yea thats cool with me."

So President Jóhannesson, you are entitled to your opinion, however, I implore you to give it another try.  That goes for whoever is reading this as well.  Don't let the Jóhannesson's of the world steer you wrong, give the Hawaiian slice a chance, you won't be sorry......well maybe you will.
