You have to have a sense of humor to live in New Jersey and we definitely do. With all that's going on around us as far as property taxes and the way our government is being run, if we didn't find a way to laugh, we'd probably cry our eyes out.

New Jersey has always been the home of some of the worlds best comedians like Abbot and Costello, Jerry Lewis and Uncle Floyd.

Now, with legalized recreational marijuana in the Garden State, I'm figuring we're going to be finding a lot more funny in where we live.

So I asked my listeners and online followers, "What's so funny about living in New Jersey?

I can already imagine Jersey's own Joe Pesci asking Jersey's Ray Liotta as Henry Hill in Goodfellas  Funny How?

It depends who you ask…. If you ask people that aren’t from Jersey…. Everything! If you ask people that are from Jersey…. Everything.

Well for one thing, many drivers will continue to drive on the highways with their turn signals on the entire time. Guess they don't hear it. That is so annoying!

What’s funny or pathetic are those people who complain about the states high taxes and cost of living and continue to vote Democrat.

New Jersey is a place where you can drive from downtown metropolis to farmland to suburbs and the beach all in about 15 minutes. Or 2 hours with traffic.

Joey Novick
The fact that there are toll roads north and south, but none going east and west.

When friends are surprised when I chat with Joe Piscopo, when I run into him.
They say, "You know Joe?" Then I say, "You don't?"
"Haven't you lived in NJ for over 50 years?"
"Ever heard of Bon Jovi or Bruce Springsteen?"

Mark Lemma
That some people say Taylor ham

Sharon Ivanauskas
When people argue over whether it’s pork roll or Taylor ham, when it’s clearly pork roll!
