A Northeastern state strongly dependent on the New York City economy for their lively-hood. People come to live here who are looking for a suburban life, but can't afford to live in Connecticut. Famed for being trashy and smelly, probably because the state of Connecticut and city of New York pay them to take our gross trash off our hands for us. Not sure why they insist on charging obscene amounts of tolls to use their sub-par highways, when our great state allows them to commute on all our highways for free, probably because they suck and can't afford to pay for their highways on their own. Also known as the cancer of the tri-state. If you look around and see a 6-lane wide traffic jam, a shopping mall to one side and a land fill to the other, chances have it you're probably in New Jersey.
Wow... look how much New Jersey sucks.
Yeahhh, thank God we're from Connecticut.

Excluding Atlantic City and parts of the Jersey shore, a state that is no where near as good as both downstate and upstate New York. Despite the stereotypes, New York is much more real, less materialistic, and has more interesting towns and places to hang out.
Johnny grew up in Bergen County, New Jersey but went to school in New Paltz, he always says how much nicer New York is and eventually wants to move there.

Mary: Hey want to check out the newest bags from coach and sunglasses from Chanel at the Garden State Plaza? Then we can go to the diner
Jess: Why go to the Garden State Plaza when you can go skiing in the Adirondacks, sightseeing at Niagara Falls, and go party in the Hamptons?

Land of conspicuous consumption, Italians, dark hair, guidos, aggressive drivers, malls, diners, high property taxes, heavily-accented syllables, jughandles and the infamous Jersey shore. I think that sums it up.
If you want to make sure that your mortgage payment is among the highest in the country, live in New Jersey.

The friendliest people are not found in New Jersey.

A nasty brown stain between New York and Pennsylvania, with twice the corruption and none of the charm of either. The butt of every joke about the East Coast. The state that makes the rest of the northeast feel good about itself. A state whose residents have giant egos for no discernible reason and consider the urban wasteland seen from the Turnpike or Parkway as "scenery". Kinda like Connecticut if someone had urinated all over it and converted half of it into a toxic waste dump. A place where green air and glowing rivers are as common as big press-on fingernails and fake Luis Vuitton purses. The average IQ is "functionally retarded" but don't tell them that, because the mongoloid greaseball douchebags who inhabit "Joisey" will start a fight over anything. I'd be that miserable too if I had to live there. A fetid sewer of a state.
I just died and descended to the ninth circle of hell, where I am chained to a wall of fire and flogged with spike-covered whips for eternity. But hey, at least I'm not in New Jersey.

A plague sent from the North to ruin everyone's college experiences. Also a state near New York.
wow, college used to be fun...until kids from new jersey showed up.

How come bars only play techno music and you can no longer wear sneakers or hats with tilted brims?
Oh, because all these jersey kids just showed up and starting taking jager bombs and drinking coors light.

Why did girls start hiding in their dorm rooms?
Bc all these kids from new jersey keep trying to start fights over them to prove their manliness.

ok. i have lived in new jersey my whole life, so i'll give you the real definition of new jersey.

ok, first of all, we think the sun shines out of our asses, and guess what, it does. we think were better than everyone. we're the prettiest girls alive, and we know it for a fact. don't mess with us, cause we will mess you up.

also, we actually think its pathetic how everyone makes fun of us. you people are only bringing us down to make yourselves feel better. "your a joisey girl!" HAHA, no. its not joisey, its jersey.

we curse like crazy over here. we say "yo" alot. we really don't care about what you think about us.

& for all you shoobies out there who claim you hate us, WHY THE FUCK DO YOU COME HERE TO VACATION IF YOU DONT LIKE US? you dont have to come here, cause we dont want you.
we drive better than you, so shut your damn traps.

yeah, so really, new jersey is a great place to live. & like, if our gonna make a rude comment, shut the fuck up, because you have no room to talk if you don't live here.
I love New Jersey
