How to break Iceland's spirit


Swedish food is...weird. Bad isn't even the right word. It's just the most bizarre combination of things you can imagine.

Oh, and pineapple on pizza is illegal in Iceland, but that fact isn't even half as weird Swedish food.

Edit: Apparently pineapple pizza isn't illegal, they've just talked about making it illegal. My point about Swedish food still stands though.

I have looked over some of the coments in here and sorry to say guys but some of you don't treat Humon very nicely. First people asked for Brexit comics and when they got that they complained about not understanding the leave side. Then she starts drawing in more political up to date things and peopel gets angry over that and ask for more funny stuff. Then she draws in more of that and people complain about lack of research on this. People please remember that we only have this if she wants to do so. To much complaning and she might stop all together. I don't say never ever complain just remeber also to be thankfully she is there to lighten up our day.

I thought we went over this in another comic?

No, pineapple isn't illegal on pizza in Iceland.

Their president said that he didn't like pineapple on pizza and then joked that he would ban it if he could - while visiting a school, talking to the students.
It was obviously a joke but local and then world media picked it up as a "funny story".

Most reported it like the joke it was, but some tried to milk the story even more and made it sound like he actually meant it.

Which in turn prompted him to issue a statement where he said that no, he was of course only joking and that he in fact was glad that he as president of Iceland didn't have that kind of power.

So no - that part isn't true at all.

EDIT: One incredibly funny side-effect of me correcting racists and far-right supporters on this site is that some of them feel the compulsive need to down-vote EVERYTHING I write.
Like this little comment here on the legality of pizza-topping in Iceland that's now gotten multiple down-votes in just 40 minutes. :-D

I ordered "American Pizza" in Iceland one time and it turns out America = ground beef and green peppers.

I was a little confused, but they could have handed me a pizza with ketchup and a gun on it and didn't, so.

Lol Humon really should do some research. Pineapple was never made illegal in Iceland. The president said that he dislikes pineapple on pizza so he jokingly remarked that he would ban it if he had the power to do so.

I'd love to see Guðni see how far he can take it, since the international media clearly will believe whatever ridiculous joke he says and report it widely as fact, since "Iceland So Quirky!" seems good for headlines. May I suggest next "Iceland bans ugly children" or perhaps "Iceland pledges one reindeer per household by 2025"?
