Oh, you said OLD Jersey? Err, you're flat out of luck there then buddy.

Everybody around me is from New Jersey, so I probably shouldn't say too much about them...

I should have seen that one coming ... still we had the name first :) Plus I'm used to it - whenever I tell anyone online that I live in Jersey (I'm originally from Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England) they normally say 'but you don't have an American accent'.

In fact when the story about Jersey Skydiver Michael Holmes (he fell, his parachute didn't open, landed on a bush and survived) was posted to Digg the first few comments where from people complaining the BBC story was wrong because he has an English accent "how can he be from Jersey with an English accent".

Why do you call it "The Garden State?"

Because "Petrochemical Processing, Refinement and Disposal" is too long to fit on a license plate.

... Oh, wrong Jersey.

What's wrong with jersey? I think it's a fine material for making clothing out of. Oh, wait, wrong Jersey again. :p

Oh and Green Lanes are stupid, bikes overtake you if you actually stick to the speed limit.

Tend do walk the 40 meters from my bed to lecture.
New Jersey sounds like a sort of retro remake of Jersey.

It's like the PT Cruiser!

Just like the car, New Jersy doesn't seem to be as good as the old one it's inspired by. :lol:

I have always wondered this: Why is New Jersey the butt of jokes from all other Northern States?

Jersey (the real one) has been described regularly as 90 thousand alcoholics clinging to a rock.

The island has more miles of road per sq mile of land than anywhere else in the world and more cars per head of population than anywhere in the world.

But there is an island wide speed limit of 40mph and is just 20mph in most places.
