    You should base it on sandwiches:

    PCOM: Exhibit A - The philly Cheese steak
    [​IMG]

    UMDNJ: Exhibit B - Taylor Ham sandwich

    Results:

    Round 1 - PCOM by a large margin :laugh: :laugh:

    Obviously you are NOT from Jersey. We DO NOT have Taylor Ham sandwiches. In NJ, we eat PORK ROLLS. And I am in for PaintBall.

    Nj has its own lingo. For starters. we are the only "New" state where you do not even need the "new" part to know what state you are talking about. Second, I am sure Taylor Ham and Pork Roll are the same thing, even though I am a lifelong jersey (see?) resident I have never had one but it is the lingo.

    A brief list if I may:

    *You've been seriously injured at Action Park.
    *You know that the only people who call it "Joisey" are from New York (usually The Bronx) or Texas.
    *You don't think of citrus when people mention "The Oranges."
    *You know that it's called "Great Adventure," not "Six Flags."
    *You've ordered a hard roll with butter for breakfast.
    *You've known the way to Seaside Heights since you were seven.
    *You've eaten at a diner, when you were stoned or drunk, at 3 am.
    *Whenever you park, there's a Camaro within three spots of you.
    *You remember that the "Two Guys" were from Harrison.
    *You know that the state isn't one big oil refinery.
    *At least three people in your family still love Bruce Springsteen, and you know what town Jon Bon Jovi is from.
    *You know what a "jug handle" is.
    *You know that a WaWa is a convenience store.
    *You know that the state isn't all farmland.
    *You know that there are no "beaches" in new Jersey - there's "The Shore," and you know that the road to the shore is "The Parkway" not "The Garden State Highway."
    *You know that "Piney" isn't referring to a tree.
    *Even your school cafeteria made good Italian subs, and, you call it a "sub" not a "submarine sandwich" or worse yet, a "hoagy" or a "hero."
    *You remember the song from the Palisades Park commercials.
    *You know how to properly negotiate a Circle.
    *You knew that the last question had to do with driving.
    *You know that "Acme" is an actual store, not just a Warner Bros creation.
    *You know that this is the only "New..." state that doesn't require "New" to identify it (like, try ...Mexico, ...York, ...Hampshire (doesn't work, does it?).
    *You know how to translate this conversation: "Jeet yet?" "No, Jew?"
    *You only go to New York City for day trips, and you only call it "The City."
    *You know that a "White Castle" is the name of BOTH a fast food chain AND a fast food sandwich.
    *You consider a corned beef sandwich with lettuce and mayo a sacrilege.
    *In the 80's you wore your hair REALLY high.
    *You don't think "What exit" (do you live near?) is very funny.
    *You know that the real first "strip shopping center" in the country is Route 22.
    *You know that people from 609 area code are "a little different."
    *You know that no respectable New Jerseyan goes to Princeton - that's for out-of-staters.
    *The Jets-Giants game has started fights at your school or local bar.
    *You live within 20 minutes of at least three different malls.
    *You can see the Manhattan skyline from some part of your town.
    *You refer to all highways and interstates by their numbers.
    *Every year, you had at least one kid in your class named Tony.
    *You know where every "clip" shown in the Sopranos opening credits is.
    *You've gotten on the wrong highway trying to get out of Willowbrook Mall.
    *You've eaten a Boardwalk cheesesteak with vinegar fries.
    *You have a favorite Atlantic City casino.
    *You start planning for Memorial Day weekend in February.
    And finally...
    *You've never pumped your own gas.

    That list is hilarious! :laugh:

    I'm a Jersey native.

    You can also add that it's soda, not pop.

    You're not confused when someone says, "What's up witchoo?"

    Below I have highlighted the reasons I tend to stay AWAY from Jersey and dare not venture across the bridge...

    :laugh:

    And over here its Ac-a-mee

    I just realized that most of my beef with Jersey is the roads!

    I tried to get to Haddonfield once and I ended up in Delaware. :)

    Little does he know our roads re-arrange themselves to send the unworthy back across the borders... kind of like the stairs in Harry Potter.

    I remember taking the wrong exit off the turnpike and finding myself heading right into the heart of the beast. Screaming, I had to make a very illegal U-turn before I had completely loss my soul. That was the scariest day of my life...

    The worst thing is when NJ people come to PA and drive in the left hand lane. Its such a novelty to them that they slow traffic down for miles or get into accidents. (Jersey bashing is so much fun, how did they end up with a good school)

    I found it funny that even in Sydney, my coordinator knew Jersey jokes. This coming from a woman that thought every state was, "in the middle" haha

    haha, I couldn't disagree more about the Jersey drivers in PA. I think you have your drivers backwards. People in Pennsylvania drive in the left lane like it is the right lane! It's not fun being a Jersey driver behind a PA driver. :thumbdown:

    all generalizations of course.

    :laugh: Not using a blinker of course.

    That was a good list btw ...

    I've been saying this for years to deaf ears ...


    Man I miss jersey. And all you who are bashing jersey drivers need to take heed to what you're saying b/c I'm sure it can apply to yourself as well ;)

    I don't miss the circles though, ESPECIALLY 70/73 circle which will be there for another 10 years (although it was supposed to be gone like 15 yrs ago! :laugh: ).

    Here's a few more that ring true for me:


    You refer to the beach as the shore.
    You know what a Wawa is, and you know the location of at least 15 of them.
    You don't understand why there aren't more 24-hour diners elsewhere in the country. This is so true :(
    You still can't believe MTV went to Seaside Heights.
    You don't take any **** from anybody especially people from New York and Philly, because you live here for christ's sake and just who the hell do they think they are anyway? Invading our beaches and bars, they are just here for the damn summer and they think they own the damn place.
    You have nearly been run over by a Tram Car in Wildwood.
    You have a grandparent who didn't move to Florida and retired in Cape May, Ocean Grove, Brick, or Toms River.
    Donald Trump is mentioned daily in your local newspaper.
    Your school actually made good Iitalian"hoagies."
    You can smell when it's low tide.
    Your car is covered in yellow-green dust in April
    You own an annual pass to Great Adventure and you had to take the monkey by-pass at the Safari cause your dad had padded-vinyl roof on his car.
    (I never had a season pass but the end part is totally true when I was little)
    Because your town was founded before 1776, all restaurants, bars, and shops have 'ye', 'olde', or 'colonial in their names
    ou know the myth of the New Jersey devil and you think it lives as Gov. Christie Todd Whitman. :smuggrin:
    There is a fruit and veggie stand down the road.


    * You know the names of the three Pep Boys.
    * You know what town Bon Jovi is from and can spell his real name.
    * You know where Kevin Smith's comic book store is. You also believe he's the model for the Simpsons' "Comic Book Guy".
    * "Been there . . . been there . . . drove past that . . . shopped there once" -- your response to the opening credits of The Sopranos.
    * You can toss 35 cents out of your driver's side window into a funnel of 12" diameter at 55 mph.
    * You've been to two malls in one day.
    * When you want to know where people live, you ask "Which exit?"
    * It's funny how the New Jersey state bird is the third finger on everyone's hand.
    * You can't believe that MTV went to Seaside Heights -- a second time!
    * NJ State Motto: "Road Closed"
    * Two wrongs don't make a right, but 3 rights do make a left.
    * You have ever been through Cowtown on your way to eat the best pizza (Mack and Manco's) in a dry town and have Polish Italian Ice for dessert.
    * It isn't Atlantic City. It's A.C.

    AND MY FAV:
    You think the Olive Garden is crap and should never have opened in NJ.



    Oh and this stuff actually applies to me:

    Funny, I was actually thinking about the premade hoagies wrapped in saran wrap just the other day.
