It actually is a phrase that means the same as "Give A Hoot, Don't Pollute". It is on "Do not litter" signs in the state of Texas.
Man reading sign: Don't mess with Texas.
Other guy: What the fuck does that mean?
Man: I'm not sure, but I don't think we should be throwing these dead bodies here by the look of this sign. It says littering is a $500 fine.
Other guy: Shit.

A phrase in which "big men" from Texas (see George W. Bush) will use in defense of their state.

Little do they know that it was a slogan coined in the 1960s by Ladybird Johnson in a highway beautificatoin campaign. So when you hear some macho cowboy say this, what they mean is "Please dont litter in my state."
I'll mess with Texas all I want! I just won't defenestrate my garbage.
