NJ dissed once again, our accent voted ugliest in America (Opinion)
Go ahead, America. We’re used to it. Insult us some more. Pile it on. We’re nothing but factories and hazmat sites. Yep. We’re all gym tan laundry dopes or high haired Snooki tramps. Right. We get it. We suck. Oh? You have more? Let’s hear it.
Big Seven Travel took another poll this year asking which accents are the most alluring across our country. New Jersey wound up dead last. In 2019 they did the same poll and we came in 49th. Yep, it got worse.
Now this wasn’t always broken down purely by state. Example, there’s apparently a difference between Southern Ohio and Northern Ohio because Southern Ohio ranked 41st. And Louisiana isn’t ranked as an accent per se but Cajun is, which ranked 18th.
So toothless redneck swamp people hunting alligators sound sexier than we do? Riiiiight.
Also since North Jersey and South Jersey have very different accents why weren’t we afforded the same separation as Southern Ohio? And since the North Jersey accent is arguably so close to a New York accent how did New York rank 2nd and we ranked 50th?
Boston at 3rd? Get the hell out of here! Hearing a woman from a Massachusetts talk dirty to you would be like listening to nails on a chalkboard from inside a wood chipper.
But here we are. The least sexy accent in the United States. All I know is there’s a certain Jersey girl whose voice I always love waking up to and it’s the sweetest sound in the world. No French accent, southern drawl, rare songbird or angel’s harp can hold a candle to it.
