I have lived in MA, IL, MD, VA and now NJ so I think I am going to get all those state flags stacked on my upper arm, like the certification patches at Jiffy Lube.

On the other arm, I am going to get the flags of the 18 countries I have visited…with room for expansion.

I am also really into cars, so I think up my neck, a la Henry Rollins, I will get all the emblems of the brands I have owned.

On my ankle, I am going to have the badge numbers from my different jobs.

I think on my right calf I will just list some things I really like (my Ipod, Costco, Red Bull, ebay, and my new blue hoodie).

I couldn’t forget my pooches, so on each hand, I will get their names across my knuckles.

For the right price, I will get HOBOKEN 411 in script like the Sublime dude across my back.

If I see anyone else who steals these ideas before I get my ink, I am SO calling you out!

Born and live in NJ all my life but the way I see NJ now is what I call ” The Arm Pit of America “..
Look at the US map, the phrase fits perfectly…..

Once this obnoxious skank from Texas made the same comment to me when she asked where I lived, “Ugh Nuuuu JURRRZEEE? It’s tha armpit uv Ahmericuh”.

To which I replied: “Then that makes Texas the taint”

The look on ‘lil miss Texass’s face, priceless.

When I hear co-workers, typically from LI, bash NJ I tend to join in. Not that I agree with them but because I want to reinforce anti-NJ myths and/or stereotypes where ever I go. Cancer? Yes. Pollution? Well of course. Bad roads? Check. Guidos? That speaks for itself.

New Yorkers, and especially LIers, are a strange breed. They bash and bash and bash NJ, pausing only long enough to move here.

NJ is too crowded as it is. So NJers: it’s your civic duty and moral obligation to discourage in-migration. NJ bashing helps. If you have other methods and ideas so much the better.

Sorry to hijack.

Long Island? I think this pretty much sums up Long Island: thedailyshow.com/video/index.jhtml?...8;title=long-island-wants-to-secede

Thank you. That bit was awesome. Basically people in LI just need to STFU already. Jersey and LI are basically the same in a lot of ways.

Is it just me or does the picture of I heat NJ one look like it’s on somebody’s back and they’re wrapping their legs around a giant bottle of Bud?

(Nothing against the tat CapnJon.)
