How an Absurdist Party of Anarcho-Surrealists Governed in Iceland

You may remember that back in 2010 I noted comedian Jon Gnarr's spoof campaign that actually put him on top of the polls.  Here's a fresh look at how this mayor of Reykjavik governed.  I love this comment by one of Gnarr's friends:
"My question was always: 'How do we f*** the system?' ... "And the answer was, we show that non-politicians can do the job as well."
Apparently Gnarr did a decent job in office.  Screw the establishment, and do it with a smile!  I can't resist reposting one of Gnarr and his self-proclaimed Best Party's hilarious campaign videos:
