FTW, i say "down the shore" and "down the river" all of the time. why go to the beach when you could go down the shore?

daggo66 South Jersey is nothing more than a Philly suburb.

crumb This thread brings back memories... haha. I lived in southern Jersey for a couple years about 10 years ago. I wish the rest of the country would adopt the jersey juke when in the left turn lane. I attempt it occasionally when I see the oncoming traffic napping.

As an add on to #9, you know what a "circle" is.
Even the ones that arenít there anymore are still circles. Like the Airport Circle - which isn't a circle anymore, next to the airport that's long closed.

Shore tourist is a shoebie. Because they brought their lunch in a shoe box.
There is also the term Bennie, as in "Bennies Go Home"

However you spell it, I know how it sounds. Definitely not new england. New England is more of an "eh" with emphasis at the end of the word. Jersey it's in the beginning and the end tails off. There's also a lot of hands moving around. I always have difficulty speaking with a handheld microphone because I find myself moving it around.

11. Route 18 doesn't freak you out at night.
12. You believe the Statue of Liberty is in NJ.
13. You don't take any shit 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.

19. You've spent St. Patrick's day in Belmar.

28. You say "water" weird.
29. Your car is covered in yellow-green dust in April.
30. You know that ACME is a supermarket, not just a Warner Bros creation.
31. Because your town was founded before 1776, all restaurants, bars, and shops have 'ye', 'olde', or 'colonial in their names.
32. You know the myth of the New Jersey devil and you think it lives as Gov. Christie Todd Whitman.
33. You think the Olive Garden is crap and should never have opened in NJ.
34. You remember when Hoboken was a ghetto not overpriced.

36. You like vinegar or gravy on your french fries.
