Oslo is referred to Tigerstaden (the tiger city)
If you add another G, it means Tiggerstaden (the city of beggars), you?ll se them in every corner. Most of these beggars are drug addicts; they are treated quite nice in Oslo.
Some of the drug addicts are promoted as salesmen for = Oslo magazine. That makes it easier for people who don?t want to support drug abuse. They buy this magazine instead.
