Don’t Ask Nanna: About The Panama Papers

Published April 8, 2016

Hey Nanna,

I’ve been following the protests online and can’t stop wondering – what’s with all the people holding bananas and putting bananas on picket signs?

Best,

Bananarama

Hey Bananarama,

It’s because Iceland is the leading producer and exporter of bananas in Europe.

Best,

Nanna Banana

Hi Nanna,

Is it just me or does the new Prime Minister look just like the guy who just stepped down?

Dear Doppelganger,

It’s not just you.

Dear Nanna,

Not to shit on everyone’s good time protesting but technically Icelanders voted for this government, maybe the government sucks but that’s democracy, that’s how it works.

Sorry Not Sorry

Dear Sorry Not Sorry,

Replace the word democracy with marriage and the word government with spouse. Iceland decided to marry this spouse then said spouse decided to lie, cheat, manipulate and defraud Iceland. Would you force Iceland to stay in a sham marriage over semantics? Just think of it as Icelanders undergoing messy divorce proceedings. Basically, Iceland’s trying to DTMFA.

Nanna
