“I’m from Texas. What country are you from?”

"I’m from Texas. What country are you from?” has appeared on bumper stickers since the 1990s. Texas used to be a country; some people believe it still is.

I used to have a friend from Texas - when he met new people, he always said “I’m from Texas - what country are you from?”

Not four hours after I received news of my impending doom trip to Texas, I saw an SUV with a Texas plate on it. And if that wasn’t enough, it had a Texas flag sticker in the window. And if a person was dull enough not to realize the driver was, in fact, from Texas, it had a bumper sticker that read, “I’m from Texas. What country are you from?”
