IN BETWEEN dealing with Donald Trump and trying to solve the crisis in Syria, it seems our world leaders are finding the time to get into heated online debates about pizza toppings.
First, Iceland’s President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson said he didn’t like pineapple on pizza.
He was later forced to release a statement on the issue clarifying his stance, offering some sort of neutral pineapple-scented white flag, after the internet lost its mind over his comments.
“I like pineapples, just not on pizza,” he wrote on Facebook. “I do not have the power to make laws which forbid people to put pineapples on their pizza. I am glad that I do not hold such power.
“Presidents should not have unlimited power. I would not want to hold this position if I could pass laws forbidding that which I don´t like. I would not want to live in such a country.
“For pizzas, I recommend seafood.”
Let’s not even touch on that last remark.
But now, New Zealand’s new Prime Minister Bill English has shared a far-too-close selfie of his, wait for it, PIZZA WITH TINNED SPAGHETTI.
“Cooked dinner for the family last night – like if you agree with tinned spaghetti on pizza!” he posted to Facebook on Monday.
Alarmingly, the post has been liked more than 8,000 times.
Many of the PM’s constituents have questioned his choice of spaghetti as a pizza topping – and his ability to cook altogether.
“Sorry Bill, any man who puts spaghetti on a pizza is not fit to run my country, you cannot count on my vote come election time,” one person wrote.
Another said: “It comforts me to know I have about the same level of culinary skill as our Prime Minister.”
In the comments section he updated his followers on his creation: “I drained off some of the liquid but not quite enough since pizza was a bit soggy in the middle. Goes well with pineapple.”
Gross, Bill, gross.
