yes, i'll be the first to admit that there is a lot of cheesiness going on with Jersey people...jersey cheese i like to call it
and it's one thing if you are a native NYer or from Long Island and you like to crack on Jersey people
but LOL @ the podunk bumkins and new englanders that moved to NYC and consider themselves "New Yorkers" who think they are all of a sudden cool enough to make jersey jokes
transplant bartender: oh you're from Jersey? hehe that;'s funny
me: yes, have you ever been?
transplant bartender: nah man, can't say i have (giggles and smirks)
me: so which part of New York are you originally from?
transplant: Brooklyn ? ? ? ? ? (wiht the upspeak tone)
me: oh you were born and raised in brooklyn?
transplant bartender: no, I was born and raised in Fagville, Indianna and moved here my freshman year at NYU
me: ahhhhhhh, i get it
