Whataburger Revolutionizes Tacos by Filling Tortillas with Sandwich Ingredients

Ride the Whataburger fish taco wave if you dare.
Wednesday marked the beginning of Lenten season, and it only took Whataburger a day to announce plans to capitalize on the religious observance that is typically associated with prayer and repentance. And who wouldn't want to make money off those observers who abstain from eating red meat on Fridays during Lent? Friday fish frys at churches are popular during Lent, but if you need a fast-food alternative, Whataburger has you covered. Yesterday the fast food chain announced they will be offering a new fish taco and spicy tartar sauce for a limited time. Customers can substitute the Southwestern tartar sauce for boring tartar on Whatacatch Sandwiches and also on the new Whatacatch Taco. The taco consists of chopped breaded fish fillet and lettuce wrapped in a flour tortilla, topped with your choice of tartar sauce. Basically, it's the contents of a Whatacatch Sandwich in a taco. Gee, thanks, Whataburger. Your team of geniuses finally decided to cut up fish and stick it in a tortilla. And it doesn't even sound tasty. And it's only available until May 1.

Put anything in a tortilla and normally I would eat it, but everything about this Whata taco just seems wrong.

I think that photo is very insensitive given today's events in Japan. Please remove it.

Be sure not to buy any Ocean Spray juice, Crest toothpaste, Surf detergent, or play any of the computer game Quake, because those are obviously also offensive and not at all coincidental.

While you at it, drain all the local reservoirs and refrain from drinking water. I feel for the people in Japan but really... My family's village was wrecked from the Samoa tsunami in the village of Vailoatai (use the googles) and I hope even they think asking to remove a picture of someone surfing a fishing taco because it's "insensitive" is hilarious. America is turning into a bunch of ______. Move to Canada.

We have to wait until May 1 for it to go away?

Yep, Jim, but don't forget your semen-free banana pudding milkshake is also available for a limited time at Chick-fil-A.
