Oulu dialect, Oulu’s soul

“ToripoLLiisi”??? hey, wrong spelling! remove one L, should be “ToripoLiisi”. If you say this, you are the perfect Finnish language learner, or native Finnish from south. “ToripoLLiisi” is the Oulu and northern Finland dialect. This fat uncle statue is located at the marketplace (Tori), the center of Oulu downtown, where is the most popular place and many events are held. Because of cute(?) looking, he has been loved by all Oulu citizens and it is the symbol of Oulu city. According to wikipedia, he was born in 1987, not an old guy!

*) TORIPOLLIISI T-shirt is currently not for sale, due to copyright issue of the statue image.
