Hunterdon County, New Jersey
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Hunterdon County is a county located in western New Jersey. Yes, “western Jersey” is a thing. In 2016, it was rated as the United States’ best place to live if you’re old, if you believe that electricity breeds sinful behavior, or if your parents were brother and sister.
Hunterdon County was first settled by Europeans in 1704 when Col. John Reading built a homestead in what is today Lambertville. Reading was the first and last person to serve in the military and be permitted in the safe space that is Lambertville. In 1714, Hunterdon County was established as a separate county, breaking off from Burlington. Over the next 150 years, Morris and Mercer County seceded because their residents wished to finally learn the secrets of metallurgy in order to make bronze tools.
The only interesting thing to happen over the next 250 years was the Lindbergh trail, which was tried at the Flemington courthouse for some reason.
In the second half of the 20th Century, rich people in search of large properties discovered they could trade stone hatchets, string, and flint for dozens of acres of property in Hunterdon County. Today, Hunterdon is the wealthiest county in New Jersey.
As of 2016, the county’s population is estimated to be 124,676 people, a decline of 2.9% from the 128,349 counted in the 2010 US Census. The racial make up of the county was 25.6% scowling curmudgeon, 21.2% aging hippie, 19.7% highland inbred, 18.2% plutocrat, 12.3% New York transplants who ruin New Jersey, and 3% Asian.
Hunterdon County's economy is based entirely on a barter system. Merchants from New York make the trek down I-78 to trade swords, flintlock rifles, rum and smallpox blankets to Hunterdon County residents in exchange for fine furs. While the New Yorkers are there, they try to convert the Jesus worshipers of Hunterdon to their religion of militant atheism.
