If Burger King could co-optÂ Ashford and SimpsonâsÂ âAinât Nothing Like the Real Thing,â maybe Texas-grown Whataburger can license U2âs âEven Better than the Real Thing.â The Irish rockers allegedly dig the Texas chain. At least if this un-credited Â photo from Twitter is to be believed.
It seems U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr. and bass guitarist Adam Clayton hit Whataburger following their show in Houston. But, anyone with Photoshop couldâve pulled that off, right?

After this one photo, it may seem specious at best that the world-famous rockers would go to the Texas institution, but then thereâs this photo of Bono at the same Whataburger,Â retweeted by Fernanda Bottini (@febottini). a Brazilian woman whose Twitter bio declares her a member of the U2 news staff. In her thread, Bottini says the photo up top was taken by Kaleen Bliss, wife of Canadian music promoter and power player Arthur Fogel.

If these Tweets are to be believed, that means Bono hung out with George W. Bush and went to Whataburger in a two-day span. Quite the Texas experience.
Now, the question is, what did they order? If it was me, itâd be a bacon Whataburger with cheese, jalapeĂ±os, mayo, mustard, pickles and onions. Spicy ketchup for the fries. Duh.
