不知道你对菠萝馅儿的披萨怎么看,反正有一个人是讨厌透了这种食物。近日,冰岛总统约翰内松在一所中学参加活动时,有学生向他提问:如何看待用菠萝做披萨的馅儿料?约翰内松毫不掩饰他对菠萝披萨的厌恶,还说如果他有权力,会立法禁止把菠萝作为披萨的配料。

Pineapple-topped pizzas leave the president of Iceland cold.
菠萝馅儿的披萨无法讨得冰岛总统的欢心。

In fact, Gueni Th. Jóhannesson says if he could, he'd pass a law banning pineapple from being used as pizza topping in his country.
事实上,古德尼?约翰内松表示,如果可以的话,他会通过一项法律禁止用菠萝做披萨馅儿。

Jóhannesson made the saucy comments to a group of high school students in the town of Akureyri, according to Iceland magazine,
据《冰岛杂志》称,约翰内松对阿克雷里镇的一群中学生发表了此番傲慢言论。

One of the students asked Jóhannesson his opinion on this cheesy topic and he didn't mince words, according to Visier, an Icelandic language news website.
冰岛语新闻网站Visier报道,其中一名学生询问约翰内松对菠萝披萨的看法,而他直言不讳。

The president told the student he was firmly opposed to pineapple on pizzas. He added, perhaps with a tongue in his cheek (not a pineapple), that it is only the fact that he's not allowed to pass laws that is keeping him from banning it entirely.
约翰内松对该学生表示,他坚决反对在披萨里加菠萝。也许是出于玩笑,他还说,自己没有完全禁止菠萝披萨的原因是他无法通过这样的法律。

约翰内松的言论经媒体报道后引起冰岛民众热议。他不得不在冰岛总统的脸书官方主页上发表《有关披萨争议的声明》。约翰内松解释道:

"I do not have the power to make laws which forbid people to put pineapples on their pizza. I am glad I do not hold such power. Presidents should not have unlimited power…I would not want to live in such a country. For pizzas, I recommend seafood."
“我没有权力制定禁止人们把菠萝放在披萨上的法律。我也很高兴自己没有这种权力。总统不应拥有无限的权力……我不想要生活在这样的国家里。对于披萨来说,我推荐海鲜口味的。”

He also clarified he doesn't hate pineapple all the time, just on pizza.
约翰内松还澄清道,他并不总是讨厌菠萝,只是讨厌披萨里的。

虽然有不少人认为约翰内松的言论傲慢无礼,有失总统身份,但是也有一些人力挺他。

Jóhannesson's issues against pineapple gets sympathy from Giacomo Pizzigoni, who owns Ambrogio15 pizzeria in San Diego.
约翰内松抵制菠萝的言论得到了Giacomo Pizzigoni的同情,他是圣地亚哥Ambrogio15披萨店的老板。

"I feel chefs should be free to experiment, but I think pineapple is a horrible topping for pizza," he told HuffPost by email. "It is extremely sweet, and what's worse is that it is served over tomato sauce. Red sauce does not go well with sweet ingredients.
他写邮件告诉《赫芬顿邮报》,“我认为厨师有进行尝试的自由,但依我之见,菠萝是一种非常烂的披萨馅儿。菠萝太甜了,更糟糕的是还要配上番茄酱。番茄酱和甜味的食材十分不搭调。”

一位推特用户表示:“我不能更赞成了。#披萨上加菠萝让人恶心,说出这件事需要勇气。”

科普:菠萝披萨的起源

For the record, pineapple-topped pizza originated not in Honolulu, but in London, Ontario, according to Atlas Obscura.
阿特拉斯奇妙之旅官网称,据记载,菠萝馅儿披萨的发源地并不是火奴鲁鲁,而是加拿大安大略省伦敦市。

Back in 1962, restaurant owner Sam Panopoulos decided to mix ham with canned pineapple on his pie to see how it would taste.
1962年,餐馆老板Sam Panopoulos决定将火腿、菠萝罐头和馅饼搭配在一起,试试味道如何。

"People said 'You are crazy to do this,'" Panopoulos told the website. To the surprise of many, it became a hit.
Panopoulos对该网站称,“人们说‘你这么做是疯了。”令许多人大跌眼镜的是,这种食物广受欢迎。
