Hometown Tales puts me in mind of Weird U.S., also produced by New Jerseyans. (It started as Weird NJ.) Is there something about New Jersey that makes its residence start web sites about various oddball stuff that goes on?

I grew up in NJ and never heard of pork roll until recently. It was always Taylor ham.

I'm trying to get the history together on the issue of "Taylor Ham" v. "Pork Roll." I never heard it called pork roll until I was in my 40's, but it must be a locale issue. In North Jersey it seems to be Taylor Ham and maybe South Jersey and Philly call it pork roll?

I'm going to conduct a poll at some point, although I'm not quite sure how many people take their Taylor this seriously ;)
