You know your from New Jersey if

You live within 30 minutes from the beach but never go there in the Summer do to them being overcrowded

The beach is the shore

You either love or hate New York City

You have at least 10 pairs of hats and sun glasses

You defend your state to outsiders but then bash it just as much

You rarely if ever refer to your state as Jersey

You know of people who were affiliated with the mafia

You know what real pizza taste like

You hate the TV Show Jersey shore

You have called New York City NYC before.
You think Trenton is the worst place ever

You know people who hate New York City but still like their sports teams.

You don't eat seafood, despite living so close to the ocean

Cheese Pizza is Plain Pizza and nothing else

You pronounce Mario Mae-Rio

Newark is Ne-wark

You'll go to other states such as Maryland Delaware and Virginia to go to the beach just to avoid the overcrowding of your own.

You live for Summer

A great place to be, not matter what ignorant people say. Yes, various places in Jersey suck, but no need to worry. There are many beatiful places in NJ. Hunterdon, for one, is the county I live in. The only bad smell you will sniff is horse and cow shit, but the sunsets and colorful hot air balloons atop of the skyline make up for that.
I just got back from the Jersey Shore. In Belmar I saw some gross ass in a thong, but when I finally got to Spring Lake I saw some people that looked normal.

The first misconception other states have of New Jersey is that it "smells". Infact the only part of Jersey that may be a little rough on the nostrils is that of coming to the Lincoln Tunnel, since it is heavily populated in the surrounding areas with factories and marshes(which DO NOT home dead bodies).

Jersey is infact one of the wealthiest states in the country that people just can't help but moving to due to it's scenic portions and safe, quiet suburbs. Not to mention the fact that whichever end you choose to move to(North or South) you're in direct locations to two of the largest, bussling cities in the USA(Philadelphia & Manhatten). Not crossing out Central Jersey which is home to some of the most clean, friendliest beaches on the East Coast which has abundant tourism rates in the summer and hoppin' boardwalks.

All our residents in this state may seem very short fused, but hey...YOU try hearing a bunch of shit from bennies and other states sayin' how much you suck and your state is worthless and we'll see how you feel at the end of the day.

We hold it down here, infact i've lived here for 19 years of my life(and counting) and found upon visiting other states(such as Mass., Virginia, Nevada, Arizona, Maryland, Pennsylvania) that i MUCH rather live here for the rest of my life then in some economic wasteland and/or socially constipated place(yeah Virgina, I'M LOOKIN' AT YOU!).

Home of WaWa-dont laugh at the name it has native american substance. How many stores where you live remember our native friends? A land of diversity-roamed by many nations. If you are scared of the circle,you dont belong here! NJ folk are experts of the highway,otherwise you'll need a map.
Especially if you go into Philly...so in other words if you are scared of speeding traffic, attitude and a fast paced world,stay out cause ya might need an anxiety med when you return home!I love my state! NJ :)

I am so sick of assholes from other states putting New Jersey down. Jersey is awesome and everyone else is simply jealous and/or ignorant. Sure, as you get closer to NYC there are many factories, but there is more to NJ than some damn factories! Try looking up north near High Point where there are farms as far as the eye can see. Try looking at Mendham where some of the richest people in the country trot around. Try looking down south at Cape May, a beautiful town along the ocean filled with Victorian homes. The only place you will see big-haired women and people who say "joisey" is in the frickin movies. And as for our driving...please stop giving us crap because you can't handle your car. NJ rocks and that's that, all the other states should just give up. P.S. if you want to visit a real armpit of a state go to PA. The people here are grammatically challenged (Pennsylvania Dutch?), have shitty food (chicken and waffles?), and are the most incompetent drivers I have ever come across. Long live NJ!
New Jersey is the Best Fucking State....EVER!
by C.B. October 11, 2005
The best state in the U.S. Even though most people hate on N.J., it has the best corn and tomatoes, among other things. New Jersey is also famous for Bon Jovi, Redman, Queen Latifah, Naughty By Nature, Bruce Springstein, and many others.
Place where are all of the major casinos are located on the East Coast.

The best state ever. Contains seedy bars, diners, and hoboken people with ridiculous accents. Awesome comic book stores, the place to be. Other states may make fun of us Jersy-ites but thats only because they know we're the coolest. Plus we got Jay and Silent Bob and Seaside Heights so i fart in your general direction if u think it's less that the shit.
Let's get some porkroll and cheese, play DDR, and then watch Seinfeld, cause thats my new Jersey day.

A great place with mostly friendly people. South Jersey is lovely. Lots of expensive Housing developments. Lots of pretty little victortian towns too. Theres nothing like the Jersey Shore or Jersey Tomatoes! Lots of emo is from Jersey. Jersey has a good local punk scene, ive heard too.
Mmm Jersey Tomatoes.
