The President of Iceland Wants to Ban Pineapple Pizza! God Bless Him!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The food world is riddled with heated debates, and one of the most polarizing fights centers around pineapple on pizza.

This week Iceland`s President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson let us know where he stands.

After taking questions from students at a high school in North Iceland, one bold pupil asked Johannesson what he thought about pineapple as a pizza topping.

The president held nothing back expressing his disdain for the pairing. He also said if he had the power to pass laws, he`d ban it across the land."

Nobody can find Iceland on a map, and nobody cares what transpires in the island nation, but when Iceland`s President (ceremonial post with no power) declared that he would ban pizza if he could pass laws, suddenly everybody was googling "Iceland" and "President Johannesson."

I would trust a politician with the wisdom and discernment to ban pizza implicitly, Congress wouldn`t dare oppose any of his executive orders.

I love me some pizza, and it`s not unusual for me to devour an entire pizza by myself, in one sitting. But if a Philistine offers me a slice of pizza with pineapple, I will beat him to within an inch of his life.

Pizza with pineapple is a culinary abomination, and an affront to the Almighty. Period. End of story.
