"Don't mess with Texas"

Who can tell me where this phrase came from and what the story is behind it?

It was an advertising campaign in the late 80's (I know this cause it was a popular phrase us young kids in high school thought was cool)

I think it was the Transportation/Hwy Department that use it for advertising or a campaign to keep Texas roadways clean.

Did I pass?

Stevie Ray Vaughn and the Fabulous Thunderbirds did a spot...
It's mighty reckless to mess with Texas.
It WAS about littering.

(forgive the Alice stuff.. it is the only one I could find)
