South Park: It’s a Jersey Thing

10/14/2010:

New Jersey ridiculed on South Park

For those that might have missed South Park last night – they did an entire episode about Jersey… further riding the coat tails of (and mocking) shows like Jersey Shore and Jersey Housewives…

“Everything east of the Rockies is now part of New Jersey!! South Park is in danger of becoming West Jersey within the week. As the Jerseyites spill into Colorado and approach South Park, Randy and the boys stand strong against the onslaught.”

Catch the full episode here.

I just saw this episode and thought it was hilarious. Perhaps a mere coincedence, I then went a store where Jersey Shore was on their TV and was forced to actually look at Snooki, something I have been successful in avoiding by not watching that show. I must be really out of the loop because I didn’t even know what Four Loco was…better get going, gotta get my highlights done and then meet my bro.

Some epidemiologists believe the origin was Brooklyn (think Bensonhurst Yo and Faw Hamilton). It spread eastwards to LI and then jumped the Verrazano Narrows via the “Ginny Gangplank” (SNF lyrics) to Staten Island.

Soon, disease vectors found their way to Essex County (Nork Neck, Bloomfield, Belleville, Nutley) and neighboring areas. Maybe they heard about “the Oranges” on a traffic report and figured they might fit in.
The Jersey Shaw is just the latest annexation and milepost in their inevitable south and westward movement. As the SP episode predicts it will continue to spread via modern technology — not unlike the way stink bugs and asian carp spread to North America from China.

and @getz76, I went to Jenks’ “Welcome Back Locals Bash” a few weeks ago and it was a much different crowd that anytime between the months of May and September.

Ever go to F-Cove on a weekday or the off-season? There are still plenty of boaters, but there’s no fist pumping, trash on the beach or in the water, and no club music blasting from boats.

I thought the episode was hysterical, especially the Snookie
@homeworld, sorry but that was straight on target regarding jersey peeps, don’t try blaming it on NY, that’s just a cop out.

It’s not a cop-out, it’s a fact. Most of the cast of “Jersey Shore” is from NY. The people on “Jerseylicious” moved to NJ from Brooklyn.

Those are the people on television. The locals are just as bad, just usually not as interesting. [quote comment=”198758″]It’s not a cop-out, it’s a fact. Most of the cast of “Jersey Shore” is from NY. The people on “Jerseylicious” moved to NJ from Brooklyn.

I was born in Point Pleasant and nobody I know or went to school is like anyone on any of those shows. The only time I see those people is near Lana on weekends and Seaside Heights in the summer.

Ever go to Hook’s in Seaside Heights between October and May?[quote comment=”198762″]Those are the people on television. The locals are just as bad, just usually not as interesting.

I meant it’s just locals. No bros or guidos from Staten Island. [quote comment=”198784″]@homeworld – can you share what Hook’s is like during those months? Please tell…

The orange folks with long nails and over-sprayed/gelled hair are probably from Long Island, too.

I’d bet my life on that.[quote comment=”198789″]I meant it’s just locals. No bros or guidos from Staten Island.

Being a native Long Islander i would agree. The jump from there to Hoboken is not that big.[quote comment=”198873″]The orange folks with long nails and over-sprayed/gelled hair are probably from Long Island, too. I’d bet my life on that.

Did you go to Point Pleasant or Point Beach? I ended up in Toms River East.

Hook’s is a different crowd (stoners). Go to the Sawmill. Or Jenks on any night. Go to Bar A in the middle of winter and you are likely to see the same. Surf Club deserves mention as well.

I worked on the Point Pleasant Boardwalk for years, including in the off-season. It was always bad, and there were plenty of locals.

I also worked at the A&P in Ortley Beach for a couple of years. In December, you should see what walks into that place. Back then (mid-1990s), they were open 24 hours and I worked stock in the overnight.
