common 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,
man: oh your from new jersey, what exit? HAHAH

NJ dude:..... at least im smart enough to know how a car works

man: im gonna go run into a pole now

New York City's metaphorical landfill.

Well, okay, so it's not that bad. Newark is interesting and it has some lovely looking areas, but there just aren't enough gardens to warrant its being called "The Garden State." I mean, c'mon.
a. I like New Jersey. It's a beautiful state.

b. New Jersey is just the state where all of NYC's trash goes. I hate it.

An east coast state that will one day like detach itself from the US; probably because its stink will push it from its spot within the earth. This would be advantageous to PA, as it would have its own shoreline and be rid of most of Jersey's horrible drivers.
PA Driver: "Sorry I'm late. I kept getting stuck behind New Jersey drivers who cut me off, almost crashed into my car, and then proceeded to drive 10 miles under the speed limit.

PA Shore-Lover: "It's awfully nice out; too bad I don't want to go to the shore enough to have to drive an hour through New Jersey."

NJ is a real wasteland, and a disappointing state that can be pretty boring but you could do a lot worse as far as boring i.e. Idaho, North and South Dakota, Iowa, Ohio, Indiana, Oklahoma, Alabama etc.

NJ is just barely tolerable.
Almost everyone has lived in NJ at some point in their life, but you wouldn't know because no one dares admit it. the only ones who seem to be proud of this state are Bon Jovi and Springstein, still trying to figure out why.

A state west of NYC known to be one of the most polluted places in the country. If you drive long enough on the NJ Turnpike your chances of getting lung cancer and all sorts of diseases increses by 90%. Its a more spacious state with cheap and less expensive land and houses than NY, in general. A place where people live to get a house for cheap and try to imtiate NY.The NJ average housing price could be 649,000$ (thats even if it is) but thats because u get a house that has 30 rooms ,10 bathrooms, and a lake, a river ,and etc....The land is cheap. In NY you would get a small average house with 11/2 bathroom 2 bedrooms and a backyard if ur lucky with that being the starting price(thats in the bad areas too). Jersey is not wealthy at all and a house in Long Island alone can buy out 4-8 jersey houses.Shit an apartment in Tribeca cost more than a 5 acre house in Jersey. New Jersey people always try to prove themselves to New Yorkers because they know we are more real and have that NY "atitude" so they feel the need to prove to us that they "gangsta" as well, meanwhile they are just a bunch of suburban kids thinking they are "ghetto" and live the hard life. Jersians are not New Yorkers so dont not be mistaken they do not speak like us with the"cawfee" or "Wawtah" accent. They try but they cant be us New Yorkers (dont be fooled people). They are not even close to aggrivated or raged drivers as New Yorkers and if someone from Jersey drove in NY they would be harrased. Everyone knows that Jersey is a dump as well as Staten Island which is literally a few swimming strokes away from Jersey. The reason they got nice cars is because the houses are so cheap that they can afford the car they want.
The name says it all "DIrty Jersey" Keyword: DIrty!!!

"Move ya fucken car moron!......No wonda he's from Jersey....."

a toxic wastedump of a state, with the exception of Hoboken - a gentrified 'extra burrough' of NYC, birthplace of Frank Sinatra, where yuppies spawn by the 1000s.
Dayum, you from dirty jerzee?

a shithole located next to Pennsylvania, New York, and Delaware. everyone here is an asshole. the entire state is New York City's bitch except for southwestern new jersey its Philly's bitch. Camden has the largest amount of ghetto per square inch in the world, counting africa.
Who is that guy over there with the slicked back hair acting like Tony Soprano?
Must be from New Jersey.

Should seperate North Jersey and South Jersey into two different states, because many things about them are totally different.

South Jersey: Home of wannabe-Italians, suburbs, overwhelming white majority, farmland, lots of Philly influence (more Flyers fans here than in Philly), close proximity of convenience stores, Pine Barrens, tourist attractions, popular beaches, AC, malls.

North Jersey: Everything in Jersey that was cool about 30 years ago (Asbury Park, Hoboken, etc), more racially diverse, urban, older-looking than South Jersey, lots of New York influence, high pollution, and the stereotypical nasal accent... overall, just looks more depressing.
Most insults directed at New Jersey apply only to North Jersey.
