If you could only use one word to describe South Jersey, what word would you use? Would you be sarcastic? Would be be positive? Would you be negative? Would you be funny? How could you best describe South Jersey in a simple and direct one word answer?

Last week I asked you how you would describe South Jersey in one word. The responses poured in and I came to the conclusion that you really do love South Jersey. Some of you decided to not follow the rules and came up with more than one word, but it's okay we forgive you. Some of you also decided to not keep it clean. Honestly, I can't say I'm shocked, this is New Jersey after all. So how did you describe South Jersey in just one word?

By far the #1 answer was home. Home is such a profound word if you think about it. They say home is where the heart is. Home is a feeling of safety and love and security.

Some of the other answers included:

One of my favorite answers was "pothole," we have experienced a lot of them lately.

Other responses were:

  • Impatient (regarding driving...very true)
  • Taxes
  • Wawa (YES)
  • Kind
  • Beautiful
  • Congested
  • Piney
  • Humble
  • Traffic
  • Awesome
  • Heart
  • Stupendous
  • Pork roll (Technically that's two words, but we will let that slide.)
  • Rainy
  • Dirty (???)
  • Quiet
  • Diverse
  • Blueberries

There were a very small few that weren't so nice, so we are going to pretend like they don't exist.
