Why were the dignitaries dressed as Star Wars characters?

He also led the 2011 Gay Pride parade in full drag as Miss Reykjavík in support of the Icelandic LGBT community, he is kinda awesome.

Our prime minister wore Chewbacca socks to a formal business event.

Now I feel much more happier, because Boris Johnson could've been our prime minister...

Some of my favorites were official press photos of him working at his desk, like:

This was his Christmas card one year:

Really wish he'd have run for president. T.d. I like Andri Snær but I don't think he has the support base to beat King Ólafur.
