making fun of the states

ok New Jersey is the butt of just about everyone’s jokes, and so it honestly shocks me that no one ever talks about pork roll. Because it is frankly the most hilarious thing about New Jersey.

Pork roll is a pork-based processed meat that’s served as a patty. It’s essentially a hotdog shaped like a hamburger, and it’s exactly as disgusting and horrifying as it sounds.

Except everyone in New Jersey loves pork roll. We fucking love it. Every deli offers it as part of a sandwich, and some people just order it as a side and eat it with a fork and knife. The capital of our state literally has a yearly pork roll festival. Even the McDonald’s in New Jersey will make you a pork roll egg and cheese (called a “Jersey breakfast” around here). We are fucking serious about our pork roll.

I forgot to mention the best part, which is that only half of us call it pork roll. The other half calls it Taylor ham. North Jersey says Taylor ham and south jersey says pork roll, and central jersey is our Switzerland because they say both. Multiple New Jersey newspapers have done studies to try to figure out where the line between the two names is, and they’ve come out with tons of different maps trying to show exactly where the border between Taylor ham and pork roll is.

And this isn’t a friendly debate: people in New Jersey are ready to go to war and die over what the correct name for this lunch meat is. I went to college in central jersey, and I witnessed people get into legit FIGHTS over what it’s called.

The most hilarious part, though, is that a couple years back, state legislators thought it would be fun and easy to make it the official state sandwich. Except then they DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO CALL IT, and the politicians we elected to represent us literally spent our tax dollars debating the name of this lunch meat on the fucking senate floor. And the best part? They never made a decision and dropped the bill altogether. The debate between pork roll and Taylor ham rages on, and probably will forever.

He’s just so EASY to make fun of.  Makes you almost forget the scary train he’s riding on.

anyway here’s your reminder to give a shit about the southern united states because while you’re making fun of those Backward Republicans you’re also conveniently ignoring the people that have to live in those conditions and are affected by those attitudes/policies the most

The morning air is crisp, an icy wind settling into her lungs as Marinette gazes into the Atlantic Ocean shining brightly from the warm sun. They have oddly been blessed by good weather despite the first snowstorm that trapped them here. Not that Marinette is complaining; Faroe Islands—Vagar, to be exact—has been wonderful and a breath of fresh air.

Don't Listen To Them... (Liam Dunbar imagine)

Originally posted by unconditionalloveandunicornspawn

Request: write one about Liam with a plus size Reader who’s very self conscious and they meet because he saves her from getting bullied

Warning(s): bullying, cussing, and i think that’s it also sorry if your name is Rebecca (the bully) I just thought of a random name.

DISCLAIMER: Rebecca is the bully and (Y/N) is the reader. just to clear that up

NOTE: Sorry if it’s short and i just want to say you are all amazing and beautiful in your own unique way and keep doing you and what you love to do. 

Also if you see someone getting bullied, please do something or tell someone. Be nice to them, don’t make fun of them for their weight, looks, etc. Cause the reason why I put Liam to say “You wouldn’t like it if someone said those things to you” is because it’s true, no one ever does so please just be nice to people and be careful about what you say.


I sighed as I walked up to the entrance of the school, maybe today will be a good day. I take a deep breathe in and exhaled as soon and I opened the doors to Beacon Hills High. I ignored all the looks I get from certain people and held my head up high while walking down the halls to get to my locker.

I look around before opening my locker and exchanged things from my backpack to my locker, ‘so far so good’ I think to myself while closing my locker but instantly regret what I thought.

I came face to face with Rebecca aka Beacon Hills High Queen Bitch. Even though she was a bitch she was still prettier than me and I couldn’t help but believe all things she has said to me.

“Oh hey (Y/N), I would say I didn’t see you there but that would be a total lie, you’re too big to miss” Rebecca says smirking while her kiss up minions were laughing behind her. “Leave me alone Rebecca” I say pushing past her and walked to class and found my seat.

Unfortunately, I had my first class and lunch with Rebecca and her stupid minions. Everyone was already in class and as soon as she came in the room it got quiet and awkward because no one wanted to mess with her and her friends and no one was going to address her and her friends about the way they act.

“What’s up with the elephant in the room? And I’m not talking about the tension in here, I’m talking about (Y/N)” Rebecca comments and everyone looks at me while I hide my face waiting for class to be over.


Class was quickly over and I walked out of the room but before I knew it I tripped. I hear Rebecca laugh and some other students laugh along with her. “Watch where you’re walking fatty, are you too big to even see where you’re feet are walking?” Rebecca questions.

I quickly get up and turn to her, “Fuck you Rebecca” I spat and walked away while hearing her yell, “Better watch your back (Y/N)!”. Soon lunch rolled around and I sat with my friend Taylor but she got up to go to the library. I got up to buy water from outside at the vending machine before being shoved to the ground, “God I’m surprised I’m able to push you considering you’re too heavy” the voice says as I look up to see Rebecca looking down at me. I looked around to see a few people around us laughing.

I stood up and looked at her, “I’m sick of your bullshit, leave me alone”. Rebecca laughs, “Sorry no can do” she replies. “You’re such a fucking bitch” I add. Rebecca chuckles and then suddenly my face was stinging and I grabbed the side of my face holding it from the pain and in shock.

“Don’t you dare talk to me like that again (Y/N). I rather be a bitch than a fat ass because news flash no guy would ever want to date you. You’re just too ugly and you’re not skinny like me, you’re just a cow” my eyes started to water from the words that came out of her mouth.

“Hey!” someone shouted, interrupting Rebecca before she could say anything else. We both turn to see a boy our age with brown hair and blue eyes and I knew who exactly it was. Liam Dunbar. The boy I had most of my classes with and the boy who was always hanging out with Scott and the rest of his friends.

Rebecca smiles, “Hey Liam, how are you?” she asks flirtatiously. 

Liam rolled his eyes, “I’d be better if you treated (Y/N) like a human being and not make fun of her. I think she’s absolutely beautiful just the way she is. She’s kind hearted, funny, and stunning. She’s not a cow, she’s perfect the way she is, if she likes how she looks then that’s good, but she shouldn’t have to deal with people like all of you who make fun of her. Because deep down I know you all wouldn’t like it if someone said things to you like that.” Liam spoke. 

Everyone was quiet and Rebecca went to speak again, “Yeah, well-” but gets cut off by Liam. “Oh and news flash no one likes a stuck up bitch who makes fun of other girls because they think it makes them look good” Liam states smirking and everyones eyes were wide and they all whispered. 

“All go you get out of here” Liam spats and Rebecca wanted to speak again but had no words and just walked away. 

Liam walked up to me, “Hey (Y/N) are you okay?” I nod my head yes. He checked again to make sure and we were going our separate ways. 

I stopped in my tracks and turned around to face his back, “Hey Liam” he turns around to look at me, “Yeah?”.

“Why?” I ask confused, “Why what?” he questions. 

“Why did you stand up for me? We barely talk to each other.” I comment.

“Because that’s not right what she did, and I know but I’ve always thought you were beautiful” he explains.

“You don’t have to pretend like you like me” I stated. Liam looks at me and walks up to me, “I’m not pretending (Y/N), everything I said was true, especially about me thinking you’re beautiful, I’ve liked you since freshmen year but was too scared to talk to you” he confesses. “Don’t listen to them (Y/N), you’re perfect the way you are. (Y/N) I want to show you the world and show you all the things you really deserve and I want to be there for you and just protect you and I know a lot of stuff happened today but would you like to go on a date with me?”.

I quickly hug him and peck him on the cheek and he blushes, “What was that for?” he asked. “For caring and yes I’d love to go on a date with you Liam Dunbar” I answer.

~Jikook~

Jungkook has shown that he cares about Jimin in multiple ways. He acts harsh but at the same time he would treat him with a gentleness that you would have to take a second glance and make sure it’s really him. He would go out of his way to make sure that his presence is known and that there’s someone that loves him. He knows the type of person Jimin is and takes care of him in his own way.

People think he doesn’t care but he do. Think of it like this, a boyfriend would tease you and sometimes make joke that can go too far but if someone else do it. It’s a big no, no. For example remember the time when he scolded someone that he has looked up to for the longest when they said a joke about Jimin. That someone was Namjoon and once he had taken his attention off the camera, you can hear him scolding him in the background. Mind you, Jungkook did a quick laugh for the camera but once he had taken his attention off of it. He became serious and actually scolded his hyung. Now we all know how in South Korea it’s a big deal to show respect and all but he knows Jimin is the type of person to just smile but secretly he’s affected by the comment just as much as anybody else who has a low self-esteem. At that moment it wasn’t a hyung-dosesang thing but a concern boyfriend to a friend, who knows that his boyfriend isn’t as strong as people made him out to be. Also take into consideration that he didn’t do that for anyone else. He makes fun of Jimin but would be the first to defend him.

He stated multiple times that he doesn’t share clothes. He made it apparent that he dislikes the very idea of even sharing clothes. But he made an exception. His exception is Jimin. It doesn’t count if other members takes his clothes without permission. It was caught on camera more than once with him offering his clothes and him holding it out willing for Jimin to take it. To show that it’s okay and he doesn’t mind. He doesn’t hesitate to give him(Jimin) his clothes, such as his jacket or shirt. He doesn’t care if Jimin takes his food and let’s do a mental count with how many times Jungkook has feed Jimin himself or even gave Jimin his own drinks. Let’s also remember how he handles Taehyung differently compare to Jimin. There a significant difference to how he treats them separately even though Jimin and Taehyung are both 95 liners and are both his best friends. Taehyung can’t get away with half of the stuff that Jimin does. He doesn’t rough up Jimin the way he roughs up Taehyung. He also allows Jimin to hit him, but if Taehyung does it he would push or hit him back without hesitation.

He doesn’t refer to Jimin as Jimin-hyung, which by itself is a testament to how close they are. There always the long questionable stares that he gives to Jimin as well. Plus his tendencies to stay close to Jimin. If you see Jimin, you see Jungkook and its vice verse. Don’t also forgot about the times were Jungkook would hold Jimin and would become oblivious to everything and everyone around him but Jimin. He’s doesn’t do that with anyone and even if he was to hug someone it would either be a side hug or a brief hug. While with Jimin it would take a while for him to even separated from him. He has to have a warning look given to him for him to even step back or be reminded that they’re in public. You can tell that’s he’s reluctant to even let go as he lingers around and slowly retract his arms from around him.

He’s also makes it apparent that he doesn’t want no one touching Jimin as well. He expressed his jealousy with his band members multiple times, even with Yoongi and Namjoon. He may have not done it vocally but his body language changes and his facial expression shifts. Jungkook has the habit of doing the tongue thing when he’s jealous, right? Remember when they were watching their performance with Spring day and when it came to Yoongi and Jimin part he did it.

He even moved Yoongi when he was standing besides Jimin and placed himself next to Jimin. A friend who doesn’t hold romantic feelings wouldn’t go through the trouble of even doing that because there the chance of you guys sitting next to each other or interacting at home. You guys see each other everyday and have almost the same exact schedule. Even if you guys aren’t together you guys are in a group of 7 people. Doesn’t it seem a bit odd that you only want that place besides Jimin to only be occupied by you? Which brings to the fact that they’re closer than you think beyond friendship. It was a very glaring and obvious move on his part.

There was also the time when Taehyung sat next to Jimin and Jungkook was behind them. He purposely made Taehyung leave his spot and took the seat beside Jimin himself.

Now let’s talk about back hugs. I just had to add this in here since y'all got me started.

He doesn’t do it to just anybody. He does it with Jimin. An iconic moment was at the Seoul music award when they were posing for a group picture. Once again his jealousy got the better of him once he saw J-hope and Jimin together. You can see him saying something to J-hope and out of left field he moves. While J-hope move, Jungkook went behind Jimin and completely disregarded everything around them once again and didn’t seem to care about the picture they were about to take. Jimin on the other hand may have just ignored him but he didn’t pull away. If Jimin didn’t feel comfortable he would have moved. Even if people say they fight a lot, remember they’re always back together at the end of the day and I felt that J-hope was a reminder of the fact that Jimin is a very attractive person. A person that many people have swooned over. They may have fought that day but for Jungkook to see Jimin pressed up against J-hope could have been an eye opener.

The face Jungkook made as he closed his eyes while he rested his head on Jimin’s shoulder could be interpreted as peaceful to others. But I think of it as acceptance. He accepts the fact that they fight. He accepts the fact that they aren’t perfect but most importantly he accepts the fact that he loves Jimin and would make it known that he’s a jealous man. With that it came peace as he relax with Jimin in his arms. If I’m not mistaken they posted something the same day with them smiling together. There were other moments were Jungkook would back hug Jimin, but I think the music award is a good example.

Instead of Jimin doing the chasing it’s now Jungkook. The only difference is that now the feeling is mutual. There no more hesitation.

And Jesus this took longer than expected.

What I should be doing: Reading my linguistics book, studying Japanese vocabulary and Kanji, reading my meditation book

What my brain wants to do: Continue plotting the epic fix it time travel Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan gen fic my brain stumbled over inspiration for last night. 

“Hinata may have been supportive of Naruto in her mind since the beginning, but it did nothing for Naruto, it did not help him at all during his early childhood. It’s no different from people ignoring him or being mean to him because in his mind she was just one of those who ignored him.”

This pisses me off when antis try to blame Hinata for the way Naruto grew up alone. Every problem they have with the series whatever it may be is always pinned on her somehow. The ending, the Ninja War, and now Naruto’s childhood???

Let’s get something straight first. No one was there for Naruto in the beginning.. Not even team 7. He had no one. Hinata was the first person to think of / treat Naruto as an actual person. She’s the only person to ever not doubt or not bully or make fun of him. She’s been behind him 110% of the time. Kishimoto has stated this several times.

During Naruto’s early childhood Hinata was a child herself at the time. She had her own problems being shy child inside of an emotionally abusive home. She could have just went with the crowd like everyone else did and have a negative view of Naruto but amazingly, she didn’t.

How about we blame the adults that could’ve made a difference but didn’t?

Jiraiya - He was Naruto’s godfather and was his Minato’s sensei. He could have easily taken Naruto under his wing and raised him.

Minato- Minato did not need to die. There could have been another way of stopping Kurama instead of sealing him inside of his son but he put the village before his life and his own family.

Hiruzen - He left Naruto to become an orphan, could’ve taken care of him but didin’t. Instead he put him in an apartment at the age of 5-6 forcing him to live on his own.

But nope. Let’s blame Hinata for this! This is all her fault right?

Eric and Bullying at Columbine

Accounts of some of those who were on Eric’s “Class of ’98 that should have died list.” Most of them claimed that they did not know Eric and Dylan, but some admitted that they saw how they were picked and some even admitted to making fun of them.

From The Columbine Report, documents 10201-10300, page 63:

1. “On this same date at 1610 hours I contacted [edited] by phone at his dorm room. At this time I asked [edited] if he had any direct contact with Eric or Dylan when he attended Columbine last year. [Edited] stated that he was [edited] around the school a lot, but never had direct contact with either one. [Edited] went on to say that he had been on both the golf and baseball teams, and he knew what went on with other kids at school. I asked [edited] what he meant, and stated that all the sport type kids referred to the Trench coats as the “no sports”. [Edited] knew that these kids got picked on all the time, and that most of it was done by the football team.

2. [Edited] stated that he had Eric in his gym class, but he had no contact with Dylan. I asked [edited] if he knew why he made the “’98 should have died list”. [Edited] stated that he had been relentless in his abuse of Eric during gym. I asked [edited] what he meant, and he stated that he had teased him about being bad in sports because he wasn’t very good, but he wasn’t the only one, other kids teased him too.

3. [Edited] stated that he had friends, [edited] (lead #2322), and [edited] would taunt Harris at school. [Edited] stated that he had never participated in the taunting.

4. [Edited] stated that he knew why he would have made the list, and that was because he spent most of his time in a gym class he was in with Eric Harris, Making fun of him. I asked him what [edited] meant by “making fun” and he stated that he would make fun of lots of people, but Eric had a big head on a very skinny body so he just teased him all the time.

Mere Speculation

Part One

Pairing: Jughead Jones x Reader

Summary: Reader is new to Riverdale and peaks Jughead’s curiousity

Warnings: Mentions of death

A/N: This is the first fanfic I’ve ever posted so please go easy on me

Jughead sat in his usual booth in Pop’s, his laptop open in front of him, casting a blue light over his features. He was distracted, however, by the strange girl working behind the counter. She spent much of her time in the kitchen. He caught a few glimpses of her flipping burgers, shaking the oil from baskets of fries, and she would occasionally venture out to work the register while Mrs Lodge waited on tables. Her apron was spattered with grease, her hair pulled up into a ponytail with wisps too short to be tied back hanging out by her neck.

Jughead was intrigued. It wasn’t often a stranger would appear in Riverdale. First Veronica Lodge, now this; and all of it just months after the mysterious death of Jason Blossom. It might all be mere speculation, but speculation was one of Jughead’s favourite pastimes.
