“I’m from a town where a traffic jam is 6 cars behind a tractor”

“I come from a town where a traffic jam is 4 (or 3, or 5, or 6—ed.)  cars behind a tractor” is a jocular saying about a small town that has been printed on many images.
       
“I come from a town where a traffic jam is 4 cars behind a tractor” is the title of a Facebook group that began in 2010. “So theres a group on Facebook called I come from a town where a traffic jam is 4 cars behind a tractor. SO TRUE…well at least in Tapp” was posted on Twitter by Mel Maria on April 15, 2010. “i just became a fan of ‘I come from a town where a traffic jam is 4 cars behind a tractor’ on FB… I love how these pages relate to me:)” was posted on Twitter by Amber Muire on April 15, 2010.
