How to speak ‘Jersey’ with bad boy Mike Marino
Part of being Jersey is talking Jersey! One of the many things that makes people from New Jersey so great is the way we talk. We add both attitude and opinion to our subjects just by the way we pronounce them.That goes especially with food.
Tell the truth, if you're in a restaurant and the server is reading the specials, which sounds more appetizing "fried calamari" with fresh "mozzerella? or "Fried calamaad, with home made mutzadel!" My mouth is watering just writing this!
I had "Jersey Bad Boy" Mike Marino, one of the best comedians New Jersey has to offer, on air and we discussed such Jersey words in this video. Listen and learn how to talk Jersey. There will be a test afterwards. In fact maybe they should put these on the PARCC tests....
