If you're not from these parts and are visiting South Jersey for the summer season, you should know we have a term of endearment for you: Shoobie!

It means we love you!

Actually, the term Shoobie relates back to a long time ago when people, mostly from the Philadelphia area, visited our beaches on a day trip. They would bring their lunches in shoeboxes! Hence the term Shoobies! (Should we call change the name to Coolies? `Cause of, you know, coolers?)

Anyway, we asked some of our fine local residents to come up with some rules for y'all - and, they did!

By the way, if you have rules for us, go ahead and stick `em in your shoeboxes, `cause we don't care to see them.

So, without further ado, here are the 35 Rules for Those Visiting South Jersey:

Category #1 - Driving! We really have a lot of problems the ways yous drive. (See what I did there?)
