#imfromjersey is the number trending topic on twitter right now. Love my fellow Jerseyans.
I'm not from Jersey but damn I love Jerseyans!
Was born in Teaneck and went to high school in Englewood but, seeing as I had no choice in the matter, never considered it much of an accomplishment
I'm Jersey born and bred.
Born and bred Jersey Girl here!
I think you both should be on TV
I hate how Jersey gets such a bad rap from most people.
Heyyy! Dont look at me, Guido
Blame The Sopranos and MTV!
I like Bruce Springsteen and Naughty By Nature and Ocean City and Cape May, too, for that matter.

But just where were Treach and Vin or Queen Latifah on that list?
Not to mention The Fountains of Wayne

I started to add Latifah to that list but I am not a huge fan of Naughty by Nature lol
I work in Jersey, have a lot of friends and spend a lot of time there outside of work - and it does get a really bad rap. Lotta good people there. And don't forget Jay & Silent Bob!!!
