Oh, New Jersey, you’re the ever reliable source for oddities and FTW experiences. From the Real Housewives of New Jersey to the ever deplorable cast from ‘Jersey Shore’, we’ve seen enough poofs and mascara to last us multiple lifetimes with enough leftovers to guarantee a scorched earth. But you’ve decided to one up yourself by hosting the annual ‘Weird Contest Week’ in Ocean City? Absolute genius. The country, NAY, the WORLD will be graced with delightful competitions such as taffy sculpting, artistic pie eating, putrid puns, and french fry sculpting challenges. If this were to happen anywhere else, perhaps a fair reaction would be ‘Really?!?!’ But being the state shaped like a nut, we have come to expect such pleasantries from you, our beloved Garden State.
