We've all heard of "bennies," and if you travel south they become "shoobies." They are the people who flock to our beaches at the end of May and occupy the space that is currently barren. With just about 4 months shy of another Jersey Shore summer, there's a new term for "bennies," but it's not so nice.

The new term is "FOOT." It is an acronym for "out of towners" with an explitive thrown in the front. There is still no clarification of whether they are referred to as "FOOTS" or "FEET."

Most of us at one time or another have resented summer visitors for traffic, trash and noise. However, we can't dispute the added revenue they bring in.
