I started thinking about this when Big 7 Travel did another of their stupid sexiest accent polls. Last year it ranked the Jersey accent 49th. This year we were ranked 50th. Dead last. Least sexy in the entire country. Less sexy than toothless alligator hunters with their Cajun accent in the swamps of Louisiana. Yet New York ranked 2nd. The only answer is people don’t ‘get’ Jersey. People love to hate us and usually they’ve never even been here.

But there are things we get the rest of the nation doesn’t. Here are just a few.
