How do Texans love Whataburger? Let us count the ways. There’s the #2 (double meat Whataburger), #5 (bacon and cheese Whataburger), #10 (Whatachick’n Sandwich), the #25 (Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit) . . . the list goes on. And if celebrating your love of Whataburger in verse is something you enjoy—and why wouldn’t it be?—you can now be rewarded by the restaurant chain for your words.
This week, Whataburger announced the #BurgerVerseContest. It is basically exactly what you think it is—and if you think that Whataburger and poetry don’t go together, consider this viral slam poem tribute out of Houston from a couple years ago. To celebrate National Burger Month, from May 3 to May 24, aspiring poets can tag Whataburger on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with short poems (remember, poetry is compression) up to 70 words that convey their enthusiasm. In return, aspiring bards have the chance to win free Whataburger for a year and a $500 Ticketmaster gift card.
