NJ is a special place to live, and sure there are a lot of jokes about this place ans some are true and some are false but the fact of the matter is if you’re not from here ( in which case you’re excused ) you don’t know nothing about NJ. Next time you wanna joke about us – at least educate yourself about what’s really going on in the other side of those bridges and tunnels
1: Pork roll is eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Because its delicious shut-up
2: Going down the shore is not horrible as you see on TV
Not all shores in NJ are filled with overly tan boozed twenty-something OK?
3: We never pump our own gas
Self-service gas stations don’t exist here, so we can stay in the comfort of our cars
4: Every 1/2 mile there is a diner – and it’s awesome!
You will never understand how important this is if you never done the late night drive to route 1 for disco fries, we love every single one of our diners but especially Americana and a few others 🙂
5: The further north you go – the more expensive it gets
good luck finding a shore home without giving out your first born
6: Mercer County is a mesh of sports
expect to see Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets here. If you live here, you must declare your allegiance as clearly as possible
7: Late night eating was invented by NJ
Bacon cheesesteak at Hoagie Heaven, maybe the Mac Daddy or anything else, we perfected late night eating, what have you done lately?
8: We know the difference between tomato pie and pizza
And we have the best of each one’s here: De Lorenzo’s, Maruca’s or Papa’s, try them and tell us otherwise, we dare you, we double dare you!
9: Related to the above statement, we have the best pizzas in the US
We’re looking at you NYC
10: NJ is not called the garden state by accident
Yeah we have farms – now you know
11: Is this how I Turnpike?
If you think you can’t handle weird traffic merges, circles, texters and people getting it on the road, just stay in the right lane and get out of the way
12: We love Hoboken
Why? Because it’s like a mini NYC without the drama – yeah we said it!
13: This politically incorrect map is the bomb! you cant really not underestimate the accuracy of it
14: If heaven exist its a Wawa store
Words can not describe it, you gotta be there
15: There is more stuff within an hour from us than in most places
Mountains, skiing, shore, lakes, rivers and two major cities, where can you find a more cool spot?! where!?!?
16: No one says ” New Joisey “
17: It’s totally normal to live off a highway exit
When you ask a Jersey resident that lives next to the highway what is his address you will hear ” Just off exit 105 ”
18: We love Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi with all our hearts
In case you live on the moon you know, they are both from here, and we like talking about them and sing their songs
19: Respect the Jughandle
In some parts of the state U-turn and left/right-hand turn lanes just don’t exist, get over it. and if you miss your turn there is another Jughandle up ahead
20: NJ Strong is no joke
Only the strong survive in New Jersey
