“I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!”

“I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!” is a popular bumper sticker that dates from at least 1994.

All Texans accept anyone who came to Texas just as fast as they could. Great gift for NEW Texans.

My favorite Texana bumper sticker:
