William Patrick Tandy of Smile Hon, You're From Baltimore fame is back at it with a new ode, this one to the Jersey Shore. The real Jersey Shore, not that fake ass TV show. No one person can handle a topic as unique as the Shore, so he enlisted the help of nine friends to tell their tales as well. Searching for tortilla's in Manasquan, causing trouble at the boardwalk, being a BENNY and many more fun and fascinating topics and are discussed here.
