“I saw an Amish billboard that said, ‘don’t drink or drive’”

“Don’t drink and drive” is a popular saying. “Don’t drink or drive”—with an Amish picture—is a saying that has been printed on many T-shirts. BustedTees came out with perhaps the first Amish “Don’t Drink or Drive” T-shirt in October 2006.
   
“I saw an Amish billboard that said, ‘don’t drink or drive’” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on July 3, 2017.

Amish: Don’t Drink or Drive
If you know any Amish people, then you’ll probably have to get this for them. Chances are, they don’t know about the internet yet.

New at Busted Tees
Busted Tees has a new tee out, Amish: Don’t Drink or Drive. What can we say? It’s true, it’s funny, and we’re really glad that we are able to do both. Just not at the same time.

Pg. 122:
There’s a T-shirt with a slogan I think is funny.
 
It shows the silhouette of an Amish man with hat, beard and suspenders and offers an excellent piece of advice: DON’T DRINK OR DRIVE, as if the Amish are always opposed to both.
