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.
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."

That would be Fresh Kills
Here are some aeriel shots of Fresh Kills.
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.
Jimmy Hoffa returns.
Your voice has changed but your breath smells the same.
This is what we get for leaving wetlands unpaved...
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 Fresh Hill's positioning to Jersey City explains that.
Okay, yes. I see what you're saying.
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.
In Jersey, we consider Pennslyvania to be "where the poor people live".
I told you eating those pork and beans would get you in trouble.
LOL. I heard about all the stink.
They should get their heads checked.
BTW, I'm just teasin' ya with the Ha Ha Guy ;)
Of course you know this means war cheese girl. ;)
Of course that is pretty funny though. lol
"So it stinks. Yougottaproblemwiddat?"
Lol! Oh boy, what did I get myself into!
You think NJ stinks, wait til you get a load of me. ;)
Do you know what a bubbler is?
...and you can't Google it either!
Is it a leaky toilet or a water fountain? and I didn't Google it.
A water Fountain, or at Fort Dix chemical waste. lol, seriously we have been told never to drink from the water fountains on base.
The Garbage State
BTW, to me this is a water fountain.
I wouldn't want to try to get a drink from it. ;)
Ya missed it by that much, my eastern bloc friend. In Massachusetts it's called a "Bubbla"
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?
No, but how about some Euchre?
You got me on that one. Quarters is a game I can play or up the river.
Do you call an ace (besides the diamond) as partner?
I was good at quarters (off my nose) in h.s.
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! ;)
