Really? In the 6 plus years that I've spent in Jersey, I've never heard anybody pronounce 'Jersey' in that manner. Is it a certain regional accent maybe?

OMG That's the best one I've ever read. It's so friggen true. Yeah, I was born and raised in Cape May County, and my little old Italian Grandmother and my PopPop lived in Wildwood as long as anyone can remember.

The ones about Wildwood are the absolute BEST. Oh my, thank you for this. We really do have the best food ever in South Jersey though. Ever since I've come to DC for college I miss all the great food more than anything else. Wildwood Boardwalk pizza is the best on Earth, I don't give a shit what anyone says. Mack's Pizza bitch! And I totally have eaten Funnel Cake for breakfast. Except I've never driven to Ocean City for Khor Bros. Icecream, we have two of them on the Boardwalk.

Ahh man, Jimmies, hoagies, "wuder", we can't say "Bagel", subway sandwiches suck ass, and Sandcrabs are awesome.

I could go on and on about this, but thank you for bringing right back home with this. It feels good. I'm a bit too young for some of these, but it's still amazing.

It's amazing to me that South Jersey isn't considered part of Pennsylvania. South Jersey has so much in common with Philly.

Anyone have a "You know you're from Philly"? cause I bet they're similar.
