NEW JERSEY: STATE OF ROMANCE

TRENTON -- A city man accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend, punching her in the head and threatening to kill her with a screwdriver told a judge yesterday that it was all just a prelude to a marriage proposal.

I was wondering what sort of strange customs you'd have in a place where this is considered "romantic". But then I read New Jersey.
It's odd, I've never been to NJ and never watched Jersey Shore (is that the name of it?). But just reading about the show and seeing clips makes it look like a place to avoid.
People in NJ should be up in arms about that show.

Awwww. Love ain't dead, babe. Nothing says, "will you marry me", like abduction and a screwdriver to the throat.

"Baby, marry me and I'll protect you from people like me. As long as they're not bigger than me."

They can be like the couple I saw on National Geographic's "Hard Time" show last night. The inmate's girlfriend is 18 and according to the narrator, may be pregnant. After a long lovey-dovey visitation (through bulletproof glass) the (shaved head, covered in tattoos) boyfriend tells the camera, "I hope she is pregnant. I'm 37, I need to start a family."

Ya just know those two crazy kids are gonna make it somehow, don't ya?

Snooki? Get back on your own channel show!

padraig, I feel that way about the show "Prison Wives". Of course on that show all the inmates are innocent and the wives truly believe their incarcerated husbands love them for who they are and not the fact they send them most of their paychecks every week. Idiots. As for this idiot, I hope she kicked him in the nuts and said no.

Kill her, marry her...meh, what's the difference?

*SMACKS* Layzeeboy.

Cindy, I think that show is a bad influence. You should stick to watching the Cubs.

Steve,
As a resident of NJ (and I live pretty darn close to Trenton, too), I'd like to assure you that there's a lot to love about the State. And yes, "Jersey Shore" makes us look bad, until you realize that all or almost all of the people on the show are NOT from NJ.

I don't even wanna KNOW what he had planned for their honeymoon.

Ladies, he may now be single.

He seems to have misunderstood the verb "to screw".

must've been drunk hammered

Siouxie, Annie already called dibs on him.

"Want a screwdriver?"

"Might as well -- can't get this @&$?! car started!"

Braniff? You're (not your) absolutely correct.

"You ain't heard the last of Ernest T. Bass!"

Why can't reporters ever get the important details -- was it a crosshead or slotted screwdriver?
