The difference between New Jersey heat and hell (Opinion)
As we sit in the middle of this insane New Jersey heat wave, you hear the phrase over and over that it's "hot as hell" here. Some would say it's like a living hell. In fact, some would compare living in New Jersey to literally living in hell.
Let's just focus on the heat, though, shall we? I ask you: What's the difference between New Jersey heat, and Hell?
"Jersey you can leave, hell you're stuck"
"You could just ask New Jersey and Hell"
"NJ has Phil Murphy"
"Heavens (literally) knows. NJ has dispensaries to help you cope."
"Hell doesn't have the Shore!"
"The pizza's better!"
"Hell is a dry heat... Jersey heat is like getting hit in the face with a wet heated sponge in the face when you walk out the door..."
"Taxes in Hell are much cheaper so it's not as bad."
"In Jersey, you ask, "what exit?" In hell...no exit."
"Hell is a dry heat"
"In hell, there are no tolls..."
"Hell [is New Jersey] sans E-Zpass"
"Hell smells better"
Jay El Payaso Watkins:
"Humidity. Hell is one temperature. Jersey humidity is 86 with but feels like 113"
Amy J. Wendowski:
"I moved in 2019 now live in Texas. Would love to be at the Jersey Shore.. want to compare humidity? We haven't been below a hundred since mid-June.... That's just the temperature with the humidity probably a buck twenty.. and I can't get a decent cheesesteak... But I do have my iced fudge bars thanks to friends that were here last week from Philly"
"With Jersey, you get a side of Pork Roll. (And no to everyone north of Trenton it is not called Taylor Ham, it's friggin' Pork Roll)"
"Hell is run by the devil ... New Jersey is run by someone worse."
