President of Iceland wants to ban pineapple on pizza

Have you ever hated something so much, you wanted it banned from your entire country? Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, the president of Iceland, knows how you feel -- but he would actually make it happen.

While visiting a high school in the town of Akureyri, in Northern Iceland, Jóhannesson expressed his views on a pretty controversial topping: pineapple on pizza. He is so against the topping, in fact, that he would ban it from the entire country.
