The president of Iceland would like to ban pineapples as a pizza topping


If you hate pineapples on pizza, pack up your bags and move to Iceland.

The nation's president, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, was asked during a high school visit last week what he thought of the topping. He said not only was he fundamentally opposed to it, but he would ban it if he could, Thrillist reports.

Of course, he can't just ban toppings. He can't pass laws on his own. But he does have an approval rating of 97 percent, according to Iceland Magazine. Maybe the rest of Iceland agrees with him.

Some Twitter users were quick to congratulate him.

But pineapple lovers weren't sad to see their friends threaten to move.

Some even said the topping had "healing properties."
