El Borscht: fragMasterFlash: New Jersey service areas? Are those like spots with some pre-dug shallow graves, bags of lime, a pile of dirt and a few shovels?

Who the fark wants to know?


Cars these days, trunk space is a very expensive premium. Now a good old Ford LTD with a 4-body trunk? Man, those were the days! You know what I'm saying, Pal?

I'm amused there's a Papa John's at the Obama Rest Stop.

I also know where Bon Jovi lives near Red Bank. He's a nice guy. Wouldn't hesitate to provide a bottled water and a snack if I knocked on the door.

Used to exist on I-295 in Burlington County.  Created by Gov. Christie Whitman in response to Stern endorsing her.  Closed in the early 2000s due to either "finances" or "unsavory activities in the bathrooms" -- take your pick.

JerseyTim: Dead for Tax Reasons: Cyber Duck: Dead for Tax Reasons: Don't fark with Clara barton

I should think not, what with the whole being dead thing and all.

and still did more worthwhile things in the past 50 years than bon jovi

I mean, in addition to having seen a million faces and rocking them all, Jon Bon Jovi does some nice things to feed and house people.


Seconded, he was a pop star, but he is not all that bad (cue the * accusation, if so, lemme see the evidence, but I seen photos of this dude doing dishes at soup kitchens and I have no recollection of anything bad, "Dead or Alive" is catchy, sue me).

If you want the answer ask your MOTHER who will tell your children not to walk his way.

If you're on a date and hoping for some backseat action, make sure you go to the Connie Chung Service Area.  After all, nobody is getting pregnant there.

On a side note, I did not know that she was from Jersey.

JerseyTim: Reverborama: Most people don't remember the Vince Lombardi Service Center except, perhaps, from the Dead Milkmen song, but it was a real place with all kinds of very cool memorabilia.  Something happened, though, and they took it all away.  I was driving up to NYC in '96 or so for work and planned to stop there to shoot a couple of pictures for a friend that was a Packers fan but everything inside was gone and only one small sign remained.  Later someone told me that so much prostitution was happening there that Lombardi's family took it all down.  Not sure if that is the real story.

It's still there. It was recently renovated. That's on the Turnpike, not the Parkway.


Damn, beat me to it ... but I'm glad I know my new home state a little after 8 years here, too!

Those rest stops are only on toll roads though ...
There are no Whataburger's in NJ. I think the nearest one is Georgia?

/Your profile says you live in Texas - I still claim Texas as home - so I assumed you would want to know about the lack of Whataburger here.

In the UK if you make the mistake of pulling in for a toilet break with the wife and a car full of kids you can blow £200 on arcade games, fast food, coffee and premium priced junk from the mini mart and gift shop. Whenever I'm passing a services signpost I make sure to overtake a truck so they don't see it. Be glad you don't have that issue.

The joke would be if someone took all of those names and next to each wrote where they lived after their success.

I grew up in Monmouth county and had a similar joke back in the day.

This thread has actually made me fondly miss New Jersey. This virus is capable of the unthinkable.
