a small but happenin' state on the mid-Atlantic coast, known for good food, good drugs, and people that don't tolerate a whole lot of bullshit. Also, pretty much anything's legal as long as you don't get caught.
1. Don't try and hi-jack a plane with boxcutters if there's anybody from Jersey on board...it probably won't work.
2. Who needs Fear Factor when all you have to do is drive in Jersey and visit places like Newark, East Orange, Trenton, or Camden.
3. When out-of-staters think there's something wrong with you for living amongst such chaos, smile and say, "I feel ya. Not everyone's tough enough to live in Jersey."

1. LETS GET ONE THING STRAIGHT I'm from New Jersey. I curse alot. I say "yo".Don't worry about how I tawk.I never had school on Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur. I sure as hell don't pump my own gas. I know what real pizza tastes like, and I know that a bagel is more than a roll with a hole in the middle. All good nights usually end at a diner, preferably w/ fries. It's a SUB, not a hoagie or worse , a hero, and I wash it down with soda,not POP. And I don't go to the beach - I go down the shore. Its not New York City :it's simply "The City". I judge people by what exit they are off the parkway. I know 65 mph really means 80. When someone cuts me off, they get the horn and the finger, and they expect it. I'm from New Jersey , and I FUCKIN LOVE THIS PLACE...

2.Yeah, I'm from Jersey, have been all my life. I'm gonna give you everything about jersey, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

First... New Jersey people are conceited. It's true. We hate
everyone else. And we think we are better than everyone else. And we never stop talking about how great jersey is. Then we tell people to "shut the fuck up" when they tell us all we talk about is jersey. I just recently was in the south ... and I can honestly say, that I do think I am better than them. It's not my fault. It's cause I'm from jersey. My friends and I were the rudest, most obnoxious people there. Everyone just stared at us. Then we saw other rude people, and I asked them where they were from. They said jersey.

Why are New Jersey people self centered? Because we have reason to be.

Next, some of the most famous people have come from our
state. Just to name A FEW... Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen, Kevin Smith, Whitney Houston, Martha Stewart, Lauryn Hill, Catch 22, Anne Hathaway, Queen Latifa, My Chemical Romance, Bon Jovi, Jack Nicholson, Bruce Willis, The Four Seasons, Danny Devito, Tom Cruise .. and the list Goes on.

Not only do we have famous people, we rank in the top 10 of smartest states every year.

Not only are we smart & famous...we're rich. Bergen, Somerset, Morris, & Hunderton counties rank in the countries top 15 richest counties. And despite the slums of Newark (yes, Newark, not New -ark) & Camden which are some of the countries most dangerous places to live, we have 4 of the top 10 safest cities to live in the US.

And we smell? Yeah, we do. New Jersey smells like ASS. On the turnpike, between exits 14 and 17. That's like, 5 percent of the entire state.. Bayonne, Port Newark, and Secaucus. And the surrounding areas. That's it. The majority of the state smells like trees. Because the majority of the state is trees. In fact, three of New Jersey's cities rank in the countries top 10 least polluted cities. So shove it.

New Jersey is ideal. I live 20 minutes away from New York City and 45 minutes away from the famous jersey shore, which by the way is amazing. You think your beach is better? Fuck you. Why do you think MTV's true life had an episode titled "I'm a Jersey Shore girl." Because it's the best fucking shore in the country.

My house is 3 minutes to the nearest mall, 5 minutes to the next, and a 10 to the next. I just Counted 7 malls within a half hour of my house. Find me another state that has all that to offer.

Yeah, we have accents. Who gives a shit? Everyone has an accent. And no, we don't say "Joisey." We do say "cawfee and tawk." But I can tell you it's a hell of a better accent than you bitches from the south.

Hungry? Don't worry. We have 24 hour diners. A million of them. We also have Hoboken which has some of the finest places to eat. And you have not had real Italian food until you come here. Okay?
And WE can't drive? NO.. YOU can't drive. In the south the speed limit signs read: speed limit 60.. minimum 45. WHAT? That's why you people can't drive. Who has a minimum speed limit? New Jersey drivers like pissing other people off solely because of the reputation. This is what we will do...just so you know...if we see an out of state license plate, we'll tailgate your ass. Probably because you're only doing the speed limit & we want to go 20 over. Then, we'll cut you off... and go slow in front of you. Because we can. And because when you go home you're gonna complain about us. We like it, it doesn't bother us….it’s what we want.

We like fast things. Things move too slow in other states. You can tell that someone's from New Jersey by the way they walk. They walk really fast and have a strut that says "I'm better than you."

Music scene? Amazing. Remember Hunka Bunka?...DJais, and last but definitely not least... TEMPTS!!! Enough said. We also have the best local bands... The rap scene, I don't know much about that, but I know it's there…& I know it's good. Obviously the club scene. You don't know club music until you come into New Jersey... SERIOUSLY. - - - - "We don't pump our gas ... we pump our fists."

Just shut the fuck up. If you go to Seaside boardwalk or Belmar. You'll probably see some of the trashiest, skankiest girls & some of the most guido, gelled up hair, armani exchange wearing boys that take too many steroids and have too much sex… But they are gorgeous and they know how to dance better than anyone you ever met in your life. So yeah, the stereotype that all jersey chicks are trashy, is true ... but only if you go to Seaside. That's pretty much it. The rest of the state is full of confident, beautiful people that speak their mind.

The majority of Jersey people are Italian, or wish they were. We drink & smoke way too much. Oh yeah and we throw the sickest parties ... in the woods.

What else? Giants, Jets, Nets, and of course the Devils. They're
better than you. So shut the fuck up. And we have more Yankee fans than New York City. Come to jersey with a sox hat on ... I fuckin' dare you!

And oh yeah, we say "yo." Often. And "fuck." I don't complain that you say "y'all" so don't complain that I say "yo."

To sum up New Jersey, yeah, most of the stereotypes are true,
probably for about 5 percent of the state. The rest of the state is beautiful.

And yeah, we hate you. We love ourselves. Wanna know why? Because all you bitches hate us. How would you feel if the other 49 states spent all their time talking shit? We deserve to be our own country cause we're that cool.
yo, lets go down to the (jersey) shore

Strong intelligent woman. She is very funny, kind, and lazy. She is pretty, has a sexy body, and has the best style. She is not slutty. Sometimes she can be really mean but she doesn't mean it most of the time. She can make awkward situations less awkward by saying something extremely sexual and random. She has a quite sick mind but that's why you love her. She has a bubble butt. She is great in bed. She is loyal and gives out the best advice. She is perfect. She will make the best girlfriend,wife, and mom.
"Jersey's a lady in the streets but a freak in the sheets."

"Stop eating all my food and get your ass out of my bed, Jersey!"

"She is so damn sexy, she must me a Jersey."

"I will do anything for Jersey to notice me."

There aren’t any actual guidos (orange gorillas) from the Shore. If you see any at all, they’re fucking bennies from Staten Island.

Most Jerseyans talk like Phillidelphians; only the far northern ones talk like New Yorkers.

It’s Jur-zee, not Joisy, you little shit.

We all do say “cawfee, tawk,” etc. And many say “worter” instead of “wadder”.

We ARE the Garden State. Don’t be an ignorant prick and assume Jersey is full of smog and factories like Newark. The entire South and Central of Jersey are covered in forests, beaches, and farmland.

Taste our tomatoes, corn, and cranberries. They’ll change you.

Jersey drivers are used to jughandles, circles, and tons of exits. We can drive anywhere.

You bet we will hunt you down and call you a “fucking motherfucker” if you cut us off.

Shit’s expensive. A loaf of bread will cost your soul.

We cry heavily-taxed tears. We find comfort in: the Shore, Six Flags Great Adventure, and pizza.

On that note: Jersey pizza is the best pizza. In Seaside, slices are as big as your head (dead serious).

Major fact about Central Jersey: PINEYS EVERYWHERE. Look them up. In short, they’re northern rednecks from the Pine Barrens.

Porkroll, pizza, subs, bagels, Italian Ice, cheese steak, and coffee are the staples of our diet.

WaWa is love. WaWa is life.

A traditional, New Jersey only holiday: Mischief Night. The night before Halloween where we fuck up the town: slash all the tires, egg everything, and toilet paper all kinds of shit. Good times.
Ode to the Garden State:
Oh Jersey, I love thine concrete, graffiti-ed city blocks,

And densely packed suburbs, full of middle-class, football obsessed Italian families,
Your greatness by far outshines your neighboring New York,
Just look at your tons of hilariously sexual-sounding bodies of water: Hackensack, Mullica, Assiscunk, Ballanger, Ho-Ho-Kus, and Sluice,
Love is eating tons of pizza, fried oreos, and Rita's Ice, then riding everything on your wonderful boardwalks and puking the night away,
Those festive Halloween mornings in good ol' Jersey are not complete without walking out on your porch to a street of fucked up cars, smashed windows, and white streamers covering every roof panel of every house,
Dear, sweet Jersey, we will proudly display our "Jersey Girl" stickers on our cars and continue to tailgate New Yorkers until they fuck off in your honor.
