You Chose The Smelliest Towns In New Jersey👃

Let me first say this article stinks, literally. We had you select the places here in Jersey that stinks. Now I will admit I hate when comedians, the late-night hacks, make their "Jersey" jokes, but just like every place in the world, we have a few places that do stink. Every spot in the world has those places that are a little "ripe" Whether it's a natural or human-made cause, it just happens. For instance, it can be pungent when you go to some back bay areas along the Jersey Shore on a hot and muggy summer morning. It's like a big tuna boat ran aground on the beach lol. So let's take a look at what you had to say about those "smelly" spots here in the Garden State.
