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 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.

New Jersey? What much is there to say rather than the fact that I reside in said state, and hate everything about it. The state is typically filled with assholes who think that they are better than you and because of that fact, are incredibly rude to you. The majority of the youth of the state typically believe that sports alone can get you into college.

THAT is the negative of the state.

THIS is the positive.

The shore/beach. Everywhere except Atlantic City. The schools are good, and so are a minority of the youth who are able to see the negative of the state; they abuse the good of the state and revel in it.

Please note that the MTV program, "Jersey Shore" is not similar to New Jersey at all, for the cast are absolute morons who have no idea what New Jersey is.
Your mother, "Hey! You live in New Jersey!"

Me, "Not proud of that fact."

Best definition I've ever heard for Jersey, taken from the movie Eddie and the Cruisers II, Eddie Lives!:

Diane: You really enjoy this life, don’t you? Always travelling?

Eddie: Still miss Jersey.

Diane: (scoffs) And what’s so special about Jersey?

Eddie: Baby, there’s nowhere else in the world like the Garden State. You got miles of swamps and mountains of dumps, different-coloured rivers, automobile graveyards, breweries, factories, ballparks, all mixed up together. It’s the best place to live.

Diane: Uh-huh. Then why does the Statue of Liberty face the other way?

Eddie: Ooh.
New Jersey--nothing else is quite the same.

Essentially, a giant suburban landscape filled to the brim with strip malls, outdoor shopping plazas with god forsaken asphalt seas, and awful drivers to complete the package. I've lived in the state all my life and it has provided me nothing but agonizing years of pain and boredom. While some parts of the state feature fairly attractive rural areas, quaint towns untouched by idiotic guido scum and historic architecture, the majority of it is housing developments and moronic people who never got up and moved west but would rather pay exuberent taxes. The McMansion reigns supreme and it takes forever to drive anywhere. It is the worst example of post-war America next to Long Island and Los Angeles. Mediocre public transport, identical housing tracts, and bland boring suburban culture.

New Jersey can be divided into three parts, North, Central, and South.

The North, it is populated by your typical Bergen county types who range from retarded Italians to cracked out minority. Despite it's proximity to New York, it is fairly unsafe and still suffers from extreme amounts of crime and poverty.

Central New Jersey is the heart of suburbia as it lacks access to nothing worthwhile aside malls and diners, which in turn, are boring and pathetic examples of pride which others deem them. Princeton University is located here, but most people in New Jersey rarely visit it considering Princeton is one large Asian fortress that keeps to it's own.

Southern New Jersey is the epitome of the country but with all the charm of being mentally ill. Despite proximity to Philadelphia, it too suffers from crime in nearby Camden.

And then there's the shore, or beach areas. Basically overpriced slums with a wooden walkway known as a boardwalk for you to fritter away your time before you return to your respective suburb.

Do not come to New Jersey. It's like everywhere else in America that you hate, but worse.
New Jersey is awful, I'm moving to California.
