“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.

I Wasn’t Born in Texas
All Texans accept anyone who came to Texas just as fast as they could. Great gift for NEW Texans.

My favorite Texana bumper sticker:

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