Oh man we have been invaded, again! Who is them. Why of course it is the curse of the Jersey Shore, the bennies. The bennies are people who visit the Jersey Shore only in the summer time between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Stands for Bayonne, Elizabeth, Newark, and New York, which are the places bennys come from. Bennies" invade our local bars, beaches, malls, stores and recreation areas in search of booze, sex, and debauchery. While it is true that many species seek the same types of fun, the "Bennie" species is unusual in that they follow no known social standard. The species is loud, obnoxious, rude, arrogant and will pursue it's goals with no regard to local inhabitants.
How to spot a benny:
Men: NYY cutoff t-shirt, backwards NYY cap, tweezed eyebrows, polished fingernails, boom box cranked all the way up, cooler, large gold jewellery, Adidas's flipflops, and generally rude and exhibit road rage.
Women: big and long hair with obnoxious gucci shades and other cranium accessories, polished French manicure with matching pedicure, globbed makeup (mind you it's 100 degrees out here and they still glob it on for the beach), animal print handbag, platform flip flops (think Snooki and her castmates). They think the world owes them everything. Rude doesn't even describe it.
I know it is not very Christian of me but I can't wait for Labor Day till they go home. thank God the weather is still beautiful then and those of us who live here year round finally get to enjoy our beaches in peace and quiet with no garbage thrown all over the place. Our roadways will instantly unclog and everyone becomes pleasant and polite. All of their rudeness and obnoxiousness is gone till next summer.
PS: Please don't crucify me. I have to live here and put up with them for 3 months. There are people from NY and northern Jersey that vacation down here and they are really nice. They all don't fit the above profile. It is unfortunate that there is a huge group of them that do and ruin it for all.
