the jersey devil

new jersey has its own folklore creature: the jersey devil, otherwise known as the "leeds devil." the back of this postcard tells you the legend of this strange character that has come to be identified with new jersey. (click on image to read detailed story)

this character is the inspiration for new jersey's national hockey league (NHL) team, "the NJ devils."

i haven't seen the jersey devil...or big foot...or the abominable snowman. i don't think i want to.

Eeeeek! He's winking at me! The devil needs to learn that cider and olives don't mix! This is such a fun card:) Happy Pff!
