Stumbled across this and wanted to share!

Meet Jon Gnarr, mayor of Reykjavik,
Iceland' s largest (and coolest) city.
He never went to university, used to
be I taxi driver and played in a local
punk rock band called 'Runny Nose'.
kijiji' attr
After that, Jon became
in his country as an comedian and
actor. (That' s him on the right).
But then in zoos), to poke fun at the
establishment, Jon and a few of bis
industry buddies, with zero
experience in politics, formed a
party called "The Best Party".
Since all the other political parties
were secretly corrupt, the Best Party
declared they would be openly
corrupt and admitted they would not
keep any of their promises made
predilection which included, “free
towels in all swimming pools, a new
Disneyland, a Parliament
by 2020 and a polar bear for. the
Reykjavik zoo".
Six months later, Jon and bis party
won the elections.
His favorite TV show is HBO' s The
Wire and when he was elected, J on
announced that he would not enter a
coalition government with anyone
that had not watched the series.
tyur.
It might be worth noting that when
he was a child, Jon was diagnosed by
doctors with severe mental
retardation and ADHD and was
treated for two years in a State
Hospital.
But he still became Mayor.
Jon is a handsign kind of politician
when it comes to making changes for
his city.
He also really likes to show his
support at Gay Pride. Here he is in
full drag:
Oh and here is the mayor protesting
for the freedom of Russian
band Pussy Riot:
He chooses his words carefully...
A Inn than a whim

mm. march zany“! any

15 an people We nus.
D wow comments
And just like us, he hates it when the
WIFI is down...
Also, it might be useful to know that
his daughter is a badass body builder
with a black belt in Taekwondo:
Here' s Jon inexplicably dressed as a
Jedi hanging out with Gaga:
Jon and his wife once toured in a
punk rock band with Iceland' s
coolest musical export, Bjork. (And
they' re still good buddies).
I guess you could say bis whole
political ethos is like a Banksy
painting come to life.
So respect to you Mr. Gnarr. We
need more people like you in
politics!

There also was the guy who was elected into the Brazilian parliament with the slogan, We are already at the bottom, how much can i **** up?
User avatar #40 to #2 - rubyasshole (05/17/2013) [-]
Yeah, I remember this guy. He still there... Tiririca

How's he holdin up?

Not that bad, he has a lot of accepted projects. But they aren't of my interest. Sorry about my English
#141 to #77 - IcRetoast (05/18/2013) [-]
He is an actual clown, another of his slogans was "Do you know what a congressman does? In reality neither do I, but if I`m elected I will be sure to tell you", he does not know how to write, he is the most voted congrssman in the History of Brazil, and has not missed a single congress meeting (the only congressmen to do so).

Just goes to show how seriously the government takes their jobs.
User avatar #150 to #141 - bluedwarf (05/18/2013) [-]
He doesn't know how to write, seriously?

Well I don't know should I find that funny or sad. I guess brazil is a very random country.
User avatar #157 to #156 - rubyasshole (05/19/2013) [-]
I need to agree, Brazil is a very random country. Tirirca was very famous even before all of this **** . Now he learned how to write, it's needed if you want to be part of the government here

sorry about my bad english

Has he done anything? Like, has he done anything besides just being the mayor? Or is he just, the mayor?
#98 to #23 - robotrino (05/18/2013) [-]
He's done okay and decently, however some of his ideas and decisions anger some people, for example he wanted to close down a ski area which young people quite like, but he wanted to shut it down because its cost was too much on how much people were using it..So hes about 50-50 you know
#149 to #23 - anon (05/18/2013) [-]
And Obama is a complete stranger to the U.S. we literally have no idea where he's from. And we elected a complete stranger to office with no backround. At least the other candidate had a political backround. I sometimes wonder if people are joking or not that they voted for him since he's black, the more I think about it, I think they weren't kidding.
User avatar #152 to #149 - drfreeman (05/18/2013) [-]
You ******* kidding me? I'm not the biggest fan of Obama, but are you ******* kidding me? Are people still this stupid? Just because you follow every crusty ass white republican doesn't mean that Obama doesn't have a history, or a past.. Google.. that's all it takes, or read a biography or something.
User avatar #81 to #23 - rainbowrush ONLINE (05/18/2013) [-]
He's done some good, but also a lot of bad.
User avatar #119 to #23 - alfredtheweak (05/18/2013) [-]
He's the modern politician. If you present yourself as the guy everyone wants to have a beer with, you win. It doesn't matter at all what you stand for.

Around election time in the US, there was a poll on xBox Live asking "Who would you rather play xBox with? Obama or Romney?" Obama won by a massive margin. And even though I fancy myself a conservative, I agreed with that poll.

Summary: most people vote on coolness.

I don't think we need more people like him, I think we need less people like his opponents >_>

When I looked him up on wikipedia, "Born Jón Gunnar Kristinsson, Jón legally changed his middle name in 2005 to the way his mother pronounced it when he was a boy."   
   
Good man.

...You act like he is all amazing and what not becauswe of how different he is...I think the reason he is "different" is maybe his severe mental retardation.

That's not all. I got 3 martini's for £5 in Reykjavik

i read "thats not all" and saw reference to money and i thought you were an ad for a moment, so i was confused when you had thumbs for the comment, but then i realized how amazing it was.

Isn't that a Morgan Freeman quote about homophobia?
User avatar #41 to #38 - gibroner (05/17/2013) [-]
I've seen it attributed to a few different people and half of the "Morgan Freeman" quotes on the internet he never said!
User avatar #43 to #41 - brenton (05/18/2013) [-]
But would someone do that? Just lie on the internet like that?

I got a buddy from Reykjavik and he was a junior Olympic men's volleyball player and a junior American ambassador from America to Iceland he is also good buddies with Michael Jordan. Moral of the story everyone from Iceland is pretty cool
User avatar #89 to #85 - unoriginalaccount (05/18/2013) [-]
He sounds very important.
#90 to #89 - achmedmuhammed (05/18/2013) [-]
He was when he was a child
User avatar #91 to #90 - unoriginalaccount (05/18/2013) [-]
What happened?
#93 to #91 - achmedmuhammed (05/18/2013) [-]
He got to old to be on the junior Olympics and junior ambassador
User avatar #94 to #93 - unoriginalaccount (05/18/2013) [-]
So why didn't get to become a Senior Olympic and a Senior Ambassador?
#97 to #94 - achmedmuhammed (05/18/2013) [-]
Because there's only one ambassador from the US to Iceland and he's an old politician and he wasn't an Icelandic citizen so he can't be on they're Olympic team he also moved back to the US
