The easy way

Rogaland’s Avis suggests, amongst other things, either borrowing from, or lending out newspapers to your neighbour. This seems like a good idea if you are the first to read it when it arrives. Goodness knows how many opportunities your neighbour would have to defile your nicely pressed copy with various stains otherwise. You could also give up your favourite daily bun. But what would you have to chew on when reading said paper then? Precisely, just the news. Alternatively, you could sell your car.

The environmentally-hostile way

Stavanger Aftenblad suggests travelling to England. They say that in the course of one year, the pound has become six percent cheaper against the Norwegian krone, and hotels are cutting their prices considerably. Flying both costs more and produces more greenhouse gases than eating a bun does. They suggest buying a used MG cheaply whilst over there. Now that makes financial sense, doesn’t it, if you’ve just chosen to sell your car over here?

The criminal way

Dagbladet reports of a man having paid a woman 2,000 kroner for sexual favours in advance. When she tried to escape with the money, he held her back whilst he rang the police for help. It’s illegal to buy sex in Norway, and he will have to pay a fine. This might cost him more money than his original idea, but he’s earned himself a free criminal record. He’ll be carted off, and there’ll be no buns for him.
