“Like a good neighbor, stay over there”

“Like a good neighbor, stay over there” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. The saying is a parody of the State Farm insurance jingle, “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.”
 
“Like a good neighbor, stay over there. #WordOfAdvice” was posted on Twitter by JayQue on June 14, 2011. The saying most likely originated from an image.
 
     
Wikipedia: State Farm
State Farm is a large group of insurance and financial services companies throughout the United States with corporate headquarters in Bloomington, Illinois. The group’s main business is State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, a mutual insurance firm that also owns the other State Farm companies.

The State Farm jingle (“Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there”) was written by American songwriter Barry Manilow in 1971. A cover was released by Weezer in 2011.
