A suburb right over the bridge from Philly, and near Cherry Hill, Moorestown, Maple Shade, Merchantville, Mt. Laurel, and yes, Camden. Although not everyone who lives here is ghetto, many people insist on acting like it. A lot of Camden kids fake their address to go to our high school, thus our basketball team is pretty decent. We have virtually no pride in our football team, but our marching band usually keeps the stands full. There is a Wawa practically on every corner here, and the one right by the high school probably gets the most business, especially from the auto shop kids "test-driving" cars. Here, you will meet some of the most intelligent people and some of the stupidest people on the planet. But, no matter how much we complain about it, Pennsauken's residents have an overwhelming pride for the place and the first ones to defend it whenever people from neighboring towns call us "ghetto," or "going downhill." Our high school's jazz band is kick-ass and Pennsauken-ites have a vocabulary all their own, such as "too souped," "let's get faaaacked," and "ayo!"
Often used to refer to something that is ghetto, or just as a general adjective.
How Pennsauken is that?
