Ohhh New Jersey. It’s So Easy to Hate You.

9 12 2011

Arguably the only good things to come out of New Jersey to date are Frank Sinatra and Bruce  Springsteen.

I contest that it’s time to add newly-minted online satirist Joe Steinfield to the list!

This rendering of the state posted this week is not only hilarious, but fairly accurate. Steinfield should know, he lives in New Jersey, and works for the DEP.

Following some negative commentary from NBC News’ “man on the street” poll about the image, Steinfield said “It was never meant to be taking seriously. I do regret that I offended a few people, however, for the most part, the feedback I’ve been getting is very positive.”

There are so many stereotypes about New Jersey and it’s inhabitants. Unfortunately anytime they’re given the opportunity to prove those perceptions wrong, say, in the form of reality shows about hard working residents – – the anthisis of  “Jersey Shore” – – they drop the ball!  (Cake Boss, Jerseylicious) 
Therefore, I agree wholeheartedly with Steinfield’s map. And I very much appreciate that someone who calls NJ home can acknowledge their collective shortfallings and maintain a sense of humor about it!
