Rug muncher to run Iceland?

Well, given the number of hotties in the country, I can't really blame her:

Icelandic politician may become world's first lesbian Prime Minister.

It's all pretty textbook stuff:

It is reported that Social Affairs Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir will be named as interim Prime Minister.

If chosen Ms Sigurdardottir, 66, will become the first openly gay or lesbian person to become a head of government.

She has been an MP since 1978 and was recently voted the most popular politician in Iceland.

Blah, blah, blah:

Ms Gisladottir, 54, the country's foreign minister, has been critical of the Prime Minister's response to the financial crisis.

A former Mayor of Reykjavík, she has led her party since 2005.

Yadda yadda yadda. But then there's this:

She had brain surgery last week.


Tip of the wig to Gweeds.

Presumably it was surgery to remove her brain, so she would be suitable for the role of leading a country.

BTW, doesn't she look like that horrible female comedian. The one named after a chocolate covered pastry.

I#m trying to think of an Icelandic themed lesbian joke but I've got nothing.

@Ross: Johanna Sigurdardottir was going down on her girlfriend, who said: "Take off your glasses, darling, they're digging into my thigh."

Johanna did and carried on enthusiastically. After a few minutes, her girlfriend sighed and said: "Put them back on, you're licking the bearskin."

It's hardly unprecedented. I can think of at least one Prime Minister who seems to have been lobotomised.

Brain surgery eh? Well at least they know she's got one.

We have no evidence at all for any of our lot!

Maybe 'openly' but there have been, and indeed are, a few others. Take that Obama chap over in the Origin of the Global Downturn place. I'm informed that he's pinged more than a few 'gaydars' over the years.

Maybe she could knock out a few porn flicks to stimulate growth an boost Icelands economy...

Obnoxio The Clown said...

It might stimulate a bit growth. I'm not sure the economy would be involved, though. :o)

If Johanna Sigurdardottir's girlfriend was blind she would not be able to tell you whether she is rug munching on a water bed or sailing on a trawler.
