Meet Jon Gnarr, Mayor of Reykjavik

Jón Gnarr, Mayor of Reyjavík, Iceland has posted an “Ask Me Anything” thread on Reddit. His responses are entertaining and interesting. No surprise – we’re talking about a guy who was diagnosed with mental retardation as a child, was a teenage punk rocker, drove a taxi, had a career as a comedian, and entered politics as a joke.

He offered questioners suggestions on cool Icelandic bands to check out, info on some of his favorite video games, and answered some serious questions about politics.
