After Texas beat Notre Dame in the first game of the season, Whataburger rubbed in the win by tweeting out a snide remark addressed to the Leprechauns.
Notre Dame can still get a win by stopping by Whataburger on the way out of Texas

But when Cal beat Texas Saturday night 50-43, a Twitter account named California Humor totally ripped off our beloved food chain. It posted a tweet saying “Texas Longhorns can still get a win by stopping by In-N-Out Burger on the way out of California #TEXvsCAL.”

There’s so much wrong here, Longhorns shouldn’t be remotely insulted. First off, it was plagiarized. Second, someone should inform whoever is running that account that Austin has its own In-N-Out. Third — is eating there even really a win? And fourth, maybe it would’ve been better if In-N-Out had actually been the one to tweet this.
People on Twitter definitely let California Humor know what’s up.
Texas has In-N-Out

what a fail re post of the @Whataburger one.

Too bad In-N-Out sucks just as bad as that call did

copying @Whataburger's brilliant marketing post from last week, but without the logic.
