Best New Jersey Themed T-Shirt Ever!

Just a quickie here about my new favorite T-shirt.  I picked this baby up at True Jersey Supply Co. here in Belmar, where you can get a whole bunch of Jersey merchandise – even a porkroll-scented candle (which smells as bad as it sounds).  Anyway, here it is:

Now, Chris Christie and I haven’t always seen eye to eye on a number of issues.  And I know making fun of his weight has gotten old and tired.  But strangely, I see this T-shirt as rising above all that political nonsense and the superficial comments on his weight.  It simply conveys what a pugnacious tough-ass our governor is.  Maybe it’s my inner Jersey trashy side talking, but I kinda respect that about him.  And, fat or not, he can indeed kick any other governor’s ass (especially since Jesse Venture is no longer in charge of Minnesota!).

In an ironic twist of fate, this medium shirt proved to be anything but.  After I put it on, I looked like an overstuffed sausage, allowing me to further identify with our overstuffed governor.

    Dude, I know that I a bit late, but today is the first time visiting your website…and I must say that you had me cracking up about those pictures of the ‘Jersey Shore’ people and what they will look like in 20 years.
    I havent laughed like this in years. Tears were coming out of my eyes. I had to leave that site because I was breaking down into a hysterical fit of laughter. As a computer animator myself, I would have to say that your knowledge/acumen of ‘sophisticated’ age propagating software is remarkable!

    ohhh…and by the way…I was drawn to your site because I had been wandering why everyone seems to have a hate on for New ‘Joisy’. I was captivated by your insights into this state because…I appreciate a good sense of humor: unlike other websites where people just blast the city and state, you ‘actually’ have an affinity of the state, for it’s good and bad, so not only was your take on the place intimately-woven but rather than get depressive, you calculated ‘the bad’ with a funny vibe. I feel the same about Philadelphia…some of the people are awful, here and the general disposition of the city is as ‘low-in-morale as some of my military units were’ but when you leave it, you miss the bad attitudes, the crazy people pulling down their pants to piss on the road, and the overall crazy and lyberithine structure of the impossible inner city roadways…I mean it’s complete chaos here but I love it. I was on a training excercise outside of Philly, in the rural area of Fort Dix and I was about to go crazy.
    Like Winston on the Ghostbustets: G_D, I love this city!!!!
    Also your pervue into Generation X’s ‘arcade culture’ really made me smile. I wish that you had went more into depth on the various arcades that you had encountered. I remember the ‘Simpsons’ and ‘Turtles’ with a great deal of fondness but I also loved the X-Men arcade game and when Marvel vs Street Fighter first came out. I always loved playing as The Hulk and The Juggernaut team, as I was not as good as other folks, so by playing this larger duo, this kept me alive longer than I would’ve lasted as an average character.
    Saturdays then actually gave you something to look foward to.
    50 cents would actually get you something from a vending device and we had ‘bullies’ back then. This was before PC. We had our bullies, our goths, our preppies, but we survived the experiences at the end of the day. To top it off our grandparents were ‘the greatest generation’…imagine that…as kids, we got to sit on the laps of the generation, whom had toppled Hitler. It is because of all of this that I sincerely believe our generation to be the most reflective/nostalgic. We remember the more laid back and fun ‘pre-911 age’. I dont mean to waste your time with reflections…it is just that those arcade games got me to thinking back to an age…that I really miss, a lot.
