This is why I read Ianqui every day

I am glad that A Ianqui in the Village is at the top of my blogroll. Not just because it happens to be alphabetical, but because of great lines like this:


Route 80 was just a gigantic dickhead that never stopped giving us the finger.
For those of you that have never had the pleasure of travelling on Route 80 west on a friday evening, these 14 words sum it up exactly. 4 lanes of bumper to bumper traffic. We had the pleasure of hitting some of it last Sunday on the way back to Syracuse from NYC. Turns out that it was actually an accident this time, and we squeaked thru just before they closed the road off to remove the rolled-over SUV (no injuries). Most of the time, there's no accident. There's no anything, all the sudden it just miraculously opens up and you are free. No hint to what was causing the hours of frustration in the first place.

My point is that if you've never been over to Ianqui's site, it is worth a read.

My addition to her list of funny sounding NJ names: Netcong. We always know we're getting close to the city when we hit Netcong, NJ. Sounds like NJ's version of Vietnam to me.

Thanks for the props! (I'm going to point out a typo here, only because the actual town name--Manunka Chunk--is even funnier than Manna Chunk.)

Oh, we also laughed heartily at Netcong. We proclaimed it the love child of the internet and the Vietcong.
