New Jersey is where I reside. Since the show Jersey Shore has been around Snookie and others have mad an impression on our state. So much so when my pale classmate from Jersey says he's from Jersey they wondered why he wasn't tanned. Nice much? Also surfing the web a US map showing all the states with a steryotype popped up. Guess what? New Jersey was stamped with Snookie! Nothing against Snookie but the steryotypes made my class so unhappy they wanted to do a Project Citizen on limitting harsh steryotypes on tV.

I was shocked at how sterotypes stick so well. And can even mark a state.
