Tommies are people who are native of Toms River NJ and are the sworn enemy of bennies. Every summer they wage war with the bennies from up north. Usually they just give wrong directions to them.
Benny: "How do you get to Seaside Heights?"
Tommy: "Go to Rt. 37, make a right and once you pass under the GSP and reach the hospital, you are almost there, just a few more miles past lakehurst, and the beach will be in front of you before you know it."
