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

A state thought to be the perilous armpit of the nation, until a young man attended The Military College of Vermont(Norwich) and discovered a large quantity of whores and unhuman looking people.
This cadet claims to have never heard "Jersey" pronounced "Joisy" either.
There is no condescending name for New Jersey such as "vermonsters" in VT or "commiefornia" for CA.

Not New York.
-Have you been to New York yet?
-Yeah, I were in New Jersey the other week.

okay okay, i sat back and read half the definitions that these white people in Jersey typed and i dont have a problem with it at all. Yes, Jersey is the best place, but its also one of the poorest places also. Majority of the people in the South Jersey area such as Hanover, Brick, Hamilton and all that other stuff has it kinda good that the people up in Essex and Union County.

New Jersey is by far the only state to have the most safest and most dangerous city in the nation. But if you havent noticed, there's 2 most safest cities (Hamilton and Brick) and 4 most dangerous cities. (Trenton, Camden, Newark, & Jersey City) What does that tell you?

Yes, Jersey is the home of plenty celebrities and happens to be one of the best places you can be from. But dont come and think everything will be all smiles and laughter because you're thinking wrong.

Take a trip to Irvington, East Orange, or Elizabeth with a nice sidekick or even a cell phone. Let's just hope you make it out alive.

New Jersey, home of the good and the bad, expect the un-expected.

New Jersey is practically the best state to live in on earth. I lived there from the time i was born, to when i was 16 years, 5 months, 15 days, 15 hours, and 20 minutes, yes i have that figured out to the exact moment. I love new jersey! I miss it now that i moved to NC. What most people don't know is that Jersey doesn't *smell* like everyone thinks. Sure there are some place where it smells like a sewer, but there are also places that make it smell the best on earth.

In Jersey you can go anywhere within 20 minutes of driving, and get anything you want. food? Chinese, Mandarin, Asian, Italian, Germany, Thai, Irish, you name it, we've got it. It's also the only place other than NYC where you can get a decent pizza. Anyone who lives elsewhere known nothing of what good pizza is. They don't understand how to make it. you need the proper equipment (proper equipment: an italian mafia family)

We are home to a GREATY Ivy league University (Princeton). We have many great other schools around. In the North for Example, Farleigh Dickenson, and Rutgers. Plus we are within a 30 minute drive into the most fantastic place you'll ever know, NYC.

Property value is high in New Jersey, if you own a large piece of land, sell it now. Because there are NO large pieces left. You can get to 3 different malls within 20 miles of your home.

No one from Jersey call it "Joisey", unless we are making fun of the people who do. Turnpike jokes arent' funny, quit asking. No, no one in NJ has ever pumped their own gas, its illegal. We have a great lottery.

New Jersey is the best place on earth, if you disagree i will smack you! *smacks*

Well. lets see here what we can do....

People for Jersey, read here, if NOT then skip ahead

-Jersey is the garden state for a reason. Old volcanic rock that has been broken down makes the perfect soil for the state that grows the most tomatoes. Its an odd state that could be urban in the cities, grassy in the highlands, or anywhere between. I happen to live at the tip, even further north than new york city, and its FREEZING. But if you went to the upmost sothern part, its HOT AS HELL! New jersey people now a days take to much crap that was left behind from a while ago, all the other states dont want to let us forget about how arogant people were here before we were even born!

now that thats out of my system....


-I live in jersey and can personally tell you how much is sucks. There are so many minoritys here, that ANYONE AND EVERYONE in your school growing up was racist, and cuz of our additude, your ass was kicked. Because of this, Jersey has left the bon jovi days behind and started to divide its children into two groups (to avoid racial separation for the millenniums, the old racist people are stuck in the past... seriously, four of my neighbors parents are like this) Any way, Group A: Sluts and Jocks. Group B: Emos and others. Group A naturally obtained their snobby attitude from generations of jersians, and i dont think i have to go into much more detail, considering how well other posts have done this job for me. Now, The sluts pick on the others (those not slutty enough to make popular status) and the Jocks pick on the Emos. If you werent obnoxious before first grade, thats it. your life is hell. There was once a survey talking about the goverments bad tap water on the east side, and that if you flush medicine down the drain it would get in the tap. This wasnt just jersey, and it listed the top medicines found in new york (tylenol, pepto...) florida (pain killers for old people, various old people medicines) and the point is, every state had roughly 5 things listed. Jersey had two: anger management pills (no doubt flushed down in a refusal to take them) and Anti-depressents. Mood stableizers werent even listed in the other states!!! I live in Jersey and want to leave it SO BAD.
1. Tomatoes are New Jersey's main export, allong with trees, sand, fresh-air and sunshine! (people are mean though)

2. There are so many sluts and emos in New Jersey, that every other suburban house holds either an old racist dude, a prick, or a mental institute escapee.

A place where people say Joisy instead of Jersey but insist they say Jersey. A place of bad haircuts and gold chains. When traveling down I95 if you see a hole in the ground and smell foul odors you're there. Where people focus on superficial shit like their tan and how many times they went to the gym that week. Where the guys beat off while watching videos of themselves beating off. Where they hate New York but they're just New York light. A place where liberal douche bag singers like Bruce Springsteen come from. He sucks, you know it. A place where you can bang nasty orange skin skanks. The beach is defined as the place where you can get used needles that washed ashore. Where AIDS and drug use is as common as the foul smelling air. A place that is the butt of many jokes. Tied with West Virginia with the least amount of last names in the phone book. Claim they invented cheese fries. When you go to a bar there all you can smell is cheap cologne, tanning lotion and stank pussy. Instead of Karaoke nights they have fist pumping nights. When super storm Sandy hit it was like someone flushed the toilet but some of the turds didn't go down.
Person 1- "I have to go to New Jersey this weekend."
Person 2- "That sucks. Make sure you get tested when you get back."
Person 1- "Tested for what."
Person 2- "AIDS, syphilis, gonorrhea, lung capacity, IQ, hair products, excessive liberalism and skin cancer."

A tremendously beautiful part of the northeast, that was ruined because the land was worth more as suburban sprawl from NYC than it was as farmland. Its residents think is the greatest place in the world, largely because the only people who still live there are the people who have never traveled anywhere but in the tri-state or down south. Anyone who has made it anywhere else makes damn sure they never come back. They specifically made the tolls outgoing and not incoming for this reason, because they knew nobody would ever pay to come here, and wanted to discourage anybody left from leaving. Because life is sad and pathetic here, largely due to the lack of good tacos and art, people are willing to risk theirs and others just to beat you by five minutes getting home, or better yet to the traffic jam ahead. Unfortunately most of them have no basic understanding of traffic flow, so they spend a lot of time slamming on their brakes and getting cock blocked in the slow lane. New Jersey-ans don't pump their own gas, because they're so retarded from having the largest number of superfund sites that they couldn't figure it out. And the bagels and pizza, while delicious, don't even begin to make up for the sheer amount of strip malls assaulting every town.
" Where ya from?"

"New Jersey"

"Oh yeah? I've never been there"

"...........You ain't missing much"
