Today, my husband's recent obsession with The Sopranos since James Gandolfini died went a step further into the ridiculous, when he tried to encourage some ducks to land in our swimming pool by throwing loaves of bread into it, while bellowing at them with a 'Noo Joisey' Wise Guy accent. FML

If I had a nickel for every time I told someone that I'm from New Jersey, and they in turn told me I don't sound like I'm from New Jersey, I could put a down payment on my dream home in central Florida. Bitch, I do sound like I'm from New Jersey. I just don't sound like I'm from a North Joisee New Yoik suburb like those douche bags on Jersey Shore and the fictitious mob boss Tony Soprano.

I think it crosses the line when he starts throwing Loaves of bread in the pool. I can understand a piece or two but loaves? You wouldn't be catching a break for that in my house, this ain't no kit kat factory.

Sad fact alert: bread is bad to feed ducks often because there's little nutritional value and it fills up their stomachs when they could have buggies or plants. If you go to a busy pond, bring certain greens and veggies for them! This has been your duck-friendly PSA.

Don't you hate that? I had one person in my life correctly guess what I was based off my accent and I was very surprised but otherwise, I don't "sound" like an undisclosed area near jersey haha.

Yes, 21. It makes me want to go Tony Soprano on their ass. Or when people don't believe me when I tell them that much of New Jersey is farm land.
No, 18, I wouldn't say I have a Philadelphia accent. People from Philadelphia sound odd to my ear compared to people from my home town. I'd say I have the generic American accent heard in most movies and ads.

I remember when I went on my first college visit in Maryland, and I met a few people there who asked where I was from. The second I said I was from Central Jersey, they began cracking up and asking why my accent was so "normal."

God, I hate this with a fiery passion. Sorry, to burst everyone's bubble, but that Tony Soprano accent isn't a Jersey accent. In fact, I'm pretty sure basically anybody you find in in NJ that actually has that obnoxious Joisey accent (I know none in real life) has simply been a victim to outside influence up north near NY, or down south near Philly. The Jersey Shore douche bags are not even from NJ (except for maybe one). They're New Yorkers!
