New Jersey Bashed By The New Yorker

Welcome to New Jersey
Flickr user: MPD01605
You’d think being neighbors would count for something. You’d think The New Yorker as a publication would feel some sort of camaraderie with us. But noooooooooo. Paul Rudnick decided it would be a good idea to rip New Jersey apart in this 12 question Jersey quiz. Some of it is true or false. Some of it multiple choice. All of it is derogatory. Particularly harsh is the implication in question 3 that girls in Secaucus are pigs and the sentiment in question 5 that those who live in Trenton should all want to kill themselves.

Before you get too angry with Paul Rudnick you should know he’s a playwright who’s been called perhaps one of the funniest writers for the stage in the U.S. as well as a novelist, essayist, and frequent humor contributor to The New Yorker, so it’s all in fun. Even more important to know Paul himself was born and raised in Piscataway, New Jersey.
