“Confucius say: Man who drive like hell bound to get there”

An advertisement for La Palina cigars in the Detroit (MI) Free Press (and other newspapers) on October 26, 1947:

“Old Cfiief Smokum Say: ‘Fellow who drive like hell bound to get there sooner or later.’”

“Confucius Say (...) ‘Man who drive like hell bound to get there!’” was posted on the newsgroup alt.tasteless.jokes on March 4, 1995. It is usually told with “Confucius say” or “old Chinese proverb” rather than the Indian chief.

“Those who drive like hell are bound to get there” was printed in the Ukiah (CA) Daily Journal on November 25, 1997. “Those who drive like Hell are bound to get there” was posted on the newsgroup alt.penpals.forty-plus-yrs on May 25, 1999.

“People who drive like hell are bound to get there” was posted on Twitter by Kirsty Rose on January 3, 2010. “People who drive like hell are bound to get there” was posted on Twitter by Katherine Abraham on November 27, 2011.
