Chances In A Nickname War: If they were in the same league as the Florida Marlins, Columbus Catfish, and maybe even the New Hampshire Fisher Cats they’d have a shot. However, when you boil it down, they are just a small piece of metal.
Interesting Fact: Whataburger is an actual chain of burger restaurants that King of The Hill didn’t just make up. In fact, its first restaurant opened in Corpus Christi in 1950. I was so disappointed when I found out Krusty Burger wasn’t a thing and The Simpsons just made it up. But hey, Krusty Krab exists in real life so I’m alright with that.
