news icon rNew Jerseyís pine barrens might qualify as the strangest stretch of woods in the world. It is completely out of place, a huge thick pine forest with only a sparse rural population situated among developed and largely urban New Jersey.

The Pine Barrens is just the type of place for a cryptid, and boy does it have one. Of course, I speak of the Jersey Devil.

Maybe the Jersey Devil is one of those winged horse things from Harry Potter, and only certain people can see them... laugh.gif

The Jersey Devil legend was a hoax written by Ben Franklin in 1732 in his 'Pennsylvania Gazette'. It was meant to be a parody, and mock witch hunts. In 1735 it was published as fact in the 'London Gentleman's Gazette'.

edit: and we never called the Pine Barrens 'Place of the Dragon'. We called it 'Mahkiirac Alowii' which means 'Big Thicket'.

I was flipping through forum posts, bored at work...and I tried to follow this up.

Don't suppose you can source this, Piney?  I went through The Gazette, and 1732 doesnt appear to have a mention of JD

From what I can gather, the stories of the Jersey Devil are related to Ben Franklin because they started after he wrote a fictitious story about a witchcraft trial; he did not write the stories himself about the JD.

This site also explains: http://bunnyfunkitch...ou-perfect.html

Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving.

I wasn't even aware that people were still seeing that thing. I thought the mass "confirmed" sightings really stopped around 1910.

`Course depending on where a "strange, winged creature" in general is sighted people will call it different things unless someone really gets specific about appearances.

If a strange winged creature is seen in New Jersey it's the Jersey Devil, if it's in West Virginia it's Mothman, if it's in the Philippines it's the Aswang, etc.

I can tell you one thing: I've lived in this state all my life and I've never seen any Jersey Devil, though I don't live near the Pine Barrens.
