There are a few things I have come to expect when I am introduced to someone in West Virginia:
"Where are you from?"
"Oh New Joisey!
(I just want to know who in New Jersey ever, ever pronounces "Joisey.")
"Have you ever seen 'The Jersey Shore?'"
Yes, I have seen it. No, it's not really like that.
"What's your last name?"
"Is that Italian?"
No, actually it's not even close to Italian.
I can tell you what else isn't Italian ... the fast food restaurant down the street advertising half price "spaghetti" and fresh "Italian donuts."
Gotta love Huntington.
