That reminds me of a very funny incident that happened to me. I've always seen and heard jokes about the hatred or rivalry, whatever you want to call it, between New Yorkers and New Jersey ians (or whatever they're called.)
My wife, mother and I were sitting across from an old bus driver at the "Good and Plenty" in Lancaster, PA. Great place to eat BTW. Anyway, this guy was from New Jersey (or Jouzie as he called it) and we became instant friends. Anyway, there was a sign up there that said, "Eat all you want, but you can't take it with you". He looked at me with all sincerity and said, "Youse know why they have that sign up there?" When I said I didn't, with deadpanned seriousness he said, "Because its the New Youirrkers! They come in here and put the chicken in their bags, in their purse...they put the food in their pockets, everything. They're all nutz!"
I still laugh out loud everytime I think about that.
