Here's to you, Mr. Gnarr

Meet Jon Gnarr, mayor of Reykjavik,
Iceland’ s largest (and coolest) city.
He never went to university, used to
be a taxi driver and played in a local
punk rock band called 'Runny Nose'.
After that, Jon became
in his country as a comedian and
actor. (That’ s him on the right).
But then in 2009, to poke fun at the
establishment, Jon and a few of his
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, "tree
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 his party
won the elections.
His favorite TV show is HBO' s The
Wire and when he was elected, Jon
announced that he would not enter a
coalition government with anyone
that had not watched the series.
the Wire:
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
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...

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 his whole
political ethos is like a Banksy
painting come to life.
So respect to you Mr. Gnarr. We
need more people like you in

**** ! As an Icelander living in Reykjavík I ******* despise that guy. Don't get me wrong he's hilarious, but THAT'S IT. Here's a few thing he didthat make me rage as how much of a bad mayor he is:
-He is changing the names of some streets that have male names in them to female, which costs about 30 Million ISK (around 250.000 USD)
-He has little to no education, he doesn't have a Student's Degree (A pretty basic degree if you want to run for president)
-He decided to cut money from the public school system instead of the ******* Church.

Sure he may be a funny guy, but people like him are not supposed to have a large stand in politics.

We need more people like him in politics????

You mean, incapable, uneducated dimwit who will go around ******* away his time, openly stealing the state's money for his ******** , with no any knowledge of economics or anything else in fact (A wild guess by my side) , but hey, he looks cool- guy?...

We already have politicians like him, they just keep quiet about the money ''borrowing'' thingy and they aren't ''cool''. The **** is wrong with you ******** ? Politicians are not supposed to be your drinking pals, they are supposed to be the guys who make sure we all have the god damn money (I can't recall one politician who didn't misunderstood his job in that part).

No intended disrespect towards Mr. Gnarr, but holy **** ...

The things I would do to his daughter. I'm not even into girls with muscles, but she's a ******* 10 outta 10.

He's diagnosed with being retarded, and you say we need more people like him in politics.

I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this but everyone in politics is retarded.

I don't think anything the doctors diagnosed him with should be looked at seriously, he was diagnosed by severely mentally retarded doctors.
Also, what was he diagnosed with?
Hint if you didn't get it: Read image.

When the idiots entertain the country it's called comedy, when they rule it it's called tragedy.
