We have a lot here in New Jersey. The beaches, the best restaurants, boardwalks, lakes, and everything else, including five words that you'll only understand if you live here in the Garden State.

I moved to New Jersey about 25 years ago and I'm so happy I did. New Jersey is a tough state, we care so deeply, and WE only know these five words that make us NJ.

It's so true that only New Jersians would understand these. So many of my family members from Pennsylvania come to New Jersey for a vacation, but will never understand unless you live here full-time in New Jersey.

These five words are the best that every Garden Stater will understand, according to onlyinyourstate.com:

#1 - Benny - We often talk about the Bennies. When we say "Benny" it's not a great word but every New Jersian knows exactly what we're talking about. It's for all those north Jersey and New York area residents who flock to the Jersey Shore in the summer, mainly.

#2 - Shoobie - Just like a Benny, usually used in the South Jersey Shore Beaches and it's from the visitors that take day trips to the shore and bringing lunch in a shoe box, according to onlyinyourstate.com.

#3 - Pork Roll - We know it's PORK ROLL, at least at the Jersey Shore.

#4 - Jughandle -  Making a left hand turn in New Jersey at a circle or intersection.

#5 - Tomato Pie - It's all about the sauce with a Tomato Pie. It's a New Jersey thing.

These five words represent the Jersey Shore and New Jersey.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
