“When you come to a fork in the road, don’t pick it up. God knows where it’s been”

“When you come to a fork in the road, take it” is a saying popularized by Yankee baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra (1925-2015). “When you come to a fork in the road, don’t pick it up. God knows where it’s been” is a jocular saying that has been printed on an image.

“When you come to a fork in the road, don’t pick it up or eat with it because you don’t know who has used before you” was posted on Twitter on September 2, 2009. “When you come to a fork in the road… Don’t pick it up! You don’t know where it’s been!” was posted on Twitter on April 28, 2011. “When you come to a fork in the road, don’t pick it up. God knows where it’s been” has been printed on a Hallmark card since at least 2015.
