ReaderFlix: Stupid drunk street fight

10/17/2009:

Hoboken411 reader Rory caught this retarded exchange between drunk idiots with his crappy cell phone video camera.

“Drunk out of towners ruin Hoboken…”

“As I went home last night some drunk girl started yelling and screaming at a bunch of mild mannered men. She accused them of trying to punch her and it was not these guys but someone else. When you are drunk, you forget these things. Girl approaches guys on Washington St in Hoboken in front of AT&T store and confronts the wrong people. Out of nowhere a guy appears who was later detained by police as her friend or boyfriend. The victim never raised his hand or motioned to the girl. These drunk out of towners really mess up our town.”

After hearing that delightful young woman talk there is no doubt that she is a product of the Hoboken School system..

You know what ‘Benny’ really means?

It means that no matter where you go, no matter who you are, some dipsh*t with nothing better to do with their time is going to slap a label on you. That’s what it means.

God I hate humans.

BENNY-the-acronym has been my assumption for years. “Bennie” usually gets an eye roll from me especially when I see it in print in say the Asbury Park Press.

I knew a guy whose family ran a hardware store in Belmar. He was certain the term was short for “beneficial”. This was before guidohood and all its fist pumping glory reached its zenith.

Does anyone know the origin and correct spelling for “shoe-bee”?

Actually, Plywood is correct, except for the train part. It didn’t matter how the Benny’s arrived at the shore. It’s a negative connotation for people from North Jersey — Hoboken and every other northern town included.

Wikipedia might say different (it is an unchecked public dictionary), but ask any clam digger or Benny & they’ll tell you the definition.

Agreed.

Wikipedia is a pet peeve of mine, as anyone can log onto it and post anything. As such, it is universally not allowed as a source on any academic research (not that we are doing anything academic here). Yet it is often quoted as a credible source or even gospel. For some idea, look up Barack Obama or George W. Bush, for example, in the database and look at the daily entries to distort information or correct it.
