Odd News: Iceland's President Said He'd Ban Pineapple As A Pizza Topping

Some weird news out of Europe on Monday: Iceland's President Guðni Jóhannesson said that he's "fundamentally opposed" to pineapple on pizza, and if he could ban the practice, he would. His comment caused quite a ruckus on Twitter, with people weighing in on both sides of the "debate."

Jóhannesson clarified his comments on Facebook, saying that while he likes pineapples when they're not on pizza, he doesn't actually have the power to ban people from putting them on pizza. He also doesn't think that any president should have that power. Jóhannesson said that he recommends that people put seafood* on pizza.

So now we know: Many people have very, very strong feelings about whether fruit should be on pizza. (Personally, I don't care. Give me all the buffalo chicken, however.)

*WHAT?! How is that better than pineapple?!
