And then God created NEW JERSEY....

Once upon a time in the kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six days.
Eventually, Michael the archangel found him, resting on the seventh day.
He inquired of God. "Where have you been?"
God signed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards
through the clouds, "Look Michael, look what I've made."
Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?"
It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call
it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance."
"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.
God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example,
northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while
southern Europe is going to be poor."
"Over there I've placed a continent of white people and over there is a
continent of black people," God continued, pointing to different
"This one will be extremely hot and while this one will be very cold and
covered in ice."
The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land mass
and said, "What's that one?"
"Ah," said God. "That's NEW JERSEY, the most glorious place on earth.
There are beautiful lakes, rivers, streams, hills, forests, and a magnificent
ocean! The people from NEW JERSEY are going to be handsome, modest,
intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found traveling the
world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking and high achieving,
and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers
of peace."
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, "What about
balance, God? You said there would be balance!!!"
God replied wisely, "Wait until you see the idiots I'm surrounding them
with in New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware!

i heard this first as a canadian joke..
substitute canada for NJ, and US for NY, Pennsylvania, and Deleware.

but that's about typical for NJ-- they don't really have anything of their own, they just take bits and pieces of others culture, and try to pass it off as there own...
just like all the "great" NJ televisions station.. oh, wait, i forgot, there are no NJ stations..

northern NJ get NY television stations, and southern NJ watches Philadelphia stations..
