Icelandic Alien Society: Jón Gnarr Is Not an Alien

The Icelandic Alien Society felt compelled to issue a statement after the interview with Mayor of Reykjavík Jón Gnarr on RÚV’s news magazine Kastljós on Monday that he is not an alien, contrary to his claims.

The statement reads that although some of the mayor’s behavioral patterns and his physical appearance might indicate that he is from outer space, the society’s closer investigation into the matter has concluded that he is, in fact, an earthly creature, reports.

The society concluded that Gnarr has both a social security number and human parents and a well-known, albeit dubious, history.

Gnarr appears to have “simply the same political sloppiness syndrome as most other third-class politicians who cannot do much else than to go back on their promises.”

“These factors do not characterize most of the aliens who have visited the earth, whom we know only by their good deeds,” the society’s statement reads.

Gnarr said on Kastljós that he sees himself as an alien in Icelandic politics, a predator to be precise.
