Due to a recent massive shortage in eggs that was caused by an outbreak of avian flu amongst chickens across the Midwest, the Southern-based fast food chain Whataburger is cutting down on its famously extensive breakfast menu availability, according to a Houston Chronicle report. Until further notice, Whataburger will only have its breakfast menu open from 5:00 am-9:00 a.m. on weekdays and 5:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. on weekends, as opposed to its ultra-convenient 11:00 p.m.-11:00 a.m. schedule.
This is a cause for severe emergency in the minds of many proud native Texans who believe their San Antonio-based chain of burger joints’ good eats are worthy for Jesus’ Last Supper. Many see this restaurant as their ultimate pride and joy and are deciding to have a major cow (pun intended) about it in the form of aimless social media whine-sessions.
Texas is flooding, Blue Bell is gone, Whataburger breakfast shortage, Dez still caught that ball. It’s hard times in Texas.

My real biggest concern today is… Whataburger doesn’t serve breakfast past 9am?

The outrage over this chain having a few less hours of available eggs for taquitos and the likes is ridiculous, but comical nonetheless. Comparing your inability to have a breakfast item for a short time to Blue Bell’s bacteria listeria outbreak that can (and has) cause actual harm to people is downright insane, though. From Houston to El Paso, it looks like that post-drinking fourth meal will have to be settled with Taco Bell, which everyone will reluctantly grow to accept..
