An old legend that dates back to colonial times about a woman who gave birth to some kind of demonic creature. This creature was supposedly born in what is now Atlantic County, New Jersey
, in a forest known as the Pine Barrens
. To this day, the Pine Barrens still covers much of South Jersey
, and over the years, a veriety of tales have been told about sitings of the Jersey Devil. Of course, most of these sitings were reported by good old folks who lived on the backroads, a.k.a. pineys
, and of course there were never any other whitnesses. New Jersey's NHL team was named after this legend.
"You're never gonna belive this, Jim, but I saw the Jersey Devil last night. It was about 3am, I just left the Blue Marlin, I was drivin down Pitney Road, an there were these glowing red eyes comin out of the fuckin woods. It was this shadowy figure and it ran accross the road right in front of my truck and back into the woods. I swear on my life it was the fuckin Jersey Devil."
"Oh yeah? How many drinks did you have at the Marlin?"
