N.J.'S P.U. RIPENS APPLE-BELCHING BOG BLAMED FOR CITYWIDE GAS STINK
NY Post ^ | 1/9/07 | TOM LIDDY, DAN KADISON and ANDY GELLER

Posted on 01/09/2007 7:36:47 AM PST by finnman69

Who cut the cheese?

New Jersey, apparently.

Across the length and breadth of Manhattan, people were asking, "What's that smell?" after a pungent odor like natural gas or rotten eggs blanketed the borough and northern New Jersey for three hours yesterday morning.

By evening, the answer seemed to be a stinky gas emitted by a New Jersey swamp or marsh.

"That's where our noses and instruments tell us" the smell was coming from, said Charles Sturcken, a spokesman for the city Department of Environmental Protection.

Figures: It's a natural phenomenon.

You'd think that the lefties would be happy about it since it wasn't man-made.

I was always taught in school that the entire state of New Jersey was a swamp.

The DUmmies said it was Bush's "Black Ops" boys testing a new nerve agent to see how fast it would spread, then blame terrorists. MIHOP #2.

Since the 60's the answer has always been "swamp gas."

Most people get their impression of NJ when they see what's on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel or GW Bridge. Having lived there twice, I can tell you that it's a beautiful state with lots to offer. Very liberal but a great state.The beaches are some of the best.

Now now...I know some people in New Jersey like to claim Staten Island as their own (for what reason God only knows), but last I checked it was still part of New York, and Fresh Kills landfill is located there.

In Pennsylvania, we considered Jersey a toxic waste dump, not a swamp. But maybe it's not all that different!

The reports though say the smell is coming from Jersey City.

The Fresh Hill's positioning to Jersey City explains that.

You are right though. There is a blur as to where NJ ends and NYC begins. How many times have you heard people say that NJ is the Capitol of NY?

Not true. Northern and western NJ is quite hilly, but the eastern side IS jsut about all swamp.

You are correct sir. The rest of the country calls them water fountains, but Wisconsinites call them bubblers. Don't know why; just how it is :)

BTW, to me this is a water fountain.

You might be a Wisconsinite if...


...you refer to a drinking fountain as the bubbler. ..."vacation" means going 'up nort' to Crivitz for the weekend.
...you measure distance in hours.
...you know several people who have hit deer more than once. You might be a Wisconsinite if...
...you often switch from "heat" to "A/C" and back again. In the same day.
...you use a down comforter and gloves in the summer.
...you drive at 65mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching.
...you see people wearing hunting clothes at social events.

You might be a Wisconsinite if...
...you install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
...you think of the major food groups as cheese, venison, beer, fish and berries.
...you carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend knows how to use them.
...there are 7 empty cars running in the parking lot at the Fleet Farm at any given time. You might be a Wisconsinite if...
...snow tires come standard on all your cars.
...you refer to the Packers as "we".
...you have gotten frostbitten and sunburned in the same week.
...you can identify an Illinois accent.

You might be a Wisconsinite if... ...you consider the mosquito as the state bird. ...the first card game you learned as a child was Sheepshead

Here are the rest. Enjoy!

Do you know how to play Sheepshead?

I play Sheepsheads on Yahoo Games.com.

It's not the easiest game to learn how to play and many people don't have the patience to learn, but once you know how and know strategy it's lots of fun. TTYL, fun chatting w/ya Joisey Boy! ;)
