new jersey. if youre from here you know the following:
1. people only go to camden to buy drugs or alcohol illegally.
2. people only go to trenton to buy drugs or to attend the puerto rican day parade.
3. every summer you go down the shore and get cheese fries on the boardwalk.
4. the white horse circle in trenton requires skill; the red lion circle in southampton does not.
5. you'll see at least 12 kids from your high school at wawa in the morning, getting a wawa green tea, breakfast sandwich, 20 oz coffee, or hoagie for lunch.
6. 711 ATM machines charge $1.50 per transaction.
7. if you must go to camden, newark, or trenton at night, lock your doors and make sure your windows are up. also, if you are a fan of rap music, turn it off. you will get jumped and/or shot.
8. bonfires and miller light in southampton are your weekend plans, every weekend. (south jersey)
9. speeding on 295 is an art. go 90 mph but make sure you slow down when you go past the rest stop right before the florence exit. theres always a statey being shady and waiting there for you in the insert.
10. take the back roads to lbi, atlantic city, cape may, seaside, and wildwood. getting pulled over on the garden state expressway or the acx isnt worth the 4 points itll put on your license.
in a circle, "Yield" is a merging technique. other new jersey drivers will say you cut them off, but will proceed to do the same thing in a matter of seconds.

The state with the cheapest gas in the country.. and we don't even have that 'self-serve' shit.

If that's not a good example of one of the many reasons NJ is a really good state... I don't know what is.

Oh and. By the way. We are -not- all Italian, even in South Jersey.
New Jersey's Regular Unleaded gas Price is like.. what? $2.79? Compared to.. what, over $3 in NY?

I love New Jersey. There is no other way to explain it. I have traveled all over the country and the world and there is no other place I would rather live. I have lived in Jersey.. no not Joisey... for my whole life until I moved to Tennessee to attend college. I hated it. The day I graduated from college I moved right back home and don't plan on moving out of this state again. Oh, and not to mention that Jersey girls are the hottest!
Tennessee Idiots: "Oh, you're from JOISEY! Do you live like the Suprano's?"
Me: No, fuck off! I live in New Jersey on a farm, and i'm not Italian and I don't live like the fuckin Suprano's!

ommon misconceptions:
#1: new jersey is an industrial dump
while its true we have industry, its only near the border, we keep the inside nice and awsome , the industry just keeps the evil newyorkers and pennsylvanians from getting in
#2: we say joisey
no, only new yorkers drop the "new" and forget the "r"
#3 we are all poor and ugly
wrong agian, new jersey is wealthy, and has some of the finest ass around,

Ummm..try New Jersey has the highest per capita wealth of any state (that's right more than NY or CT) And of course, we respect NY, a lot of us go into the city very often, and New Jersey is very classy. We have classic prep towns like Ridgewood and lots of celebrities live in Saddle River, among other towns. Bergen County is among the richest in the country and we may be a suburb, but we're close enough to cities like Hoboken that there's something going on all the time. Plus, we have a whole bunch of NY sports teams playing in NJ, like the Jets, Giants, etc. Please respect New Jersey, we respect you guys.
Most of us who live here think that NJ is a great place to live! Our schools are among the best in the nation, and we have an abundance of fresh air and trees! We're centrally located so we can enjoy the splendor of many states, NY and CT amongst the many.

The best state in the country. Is often dissed by Pennsylvanians because of the infamous "Fifteen Miles of Universal Fart" but I'd sure as hell rather smell that than cow manure and all the other shit PA has to offer.
PA Native: You're from Jersey huh? What exit?
Jersey Native: 98, fuck-you-very-much.

One of the richest and most educated states in this country. If you can't drive, then get the Hell out, because most of us don't have that kind of patience. The only place that really "smells", like the stereotypes say, is Newark, personally. Has some of the best and biggest malls around, and is home to Jay and Silent Bob.

If you ask someone from Jersey if they're from "Joisey", you deserve a punch in the face.

I've been to New York, Pennsylvania, and many states of the South(Currently living in Florida.), and I gotta tell ya... JERSEY KICKS ALL THEIR ASSES!!!
