Taking some shots at the state of Texas, the Stanford University marching band garnered some boos during its Valero Alamo Bowl halftime show on December 28. Mocking our state pride, the proposed border wall, the size of the Capitol building, and even Whataburger, the band (which is known for good-natured jabs toward their opponents) seem to have incurred the wrath of Texas in general.

According to KENS 5, their show commenced by saying “Our program is sponsored by The Onion and the White House Press Office, everyone’s favorite source of definitely not made-up facts,” and went on to present “alternative facts” about the Lone Star State. They referred to queso as a popular sports drink, noted that that cost of the proposed border wall “…could only pay for the tuition of about twenty million college students…” and mentioned Whataburger as “Waterburger,” claiming it only served water. Huh?

Of course, Whataburger couldn’t hold back, taking to Twitter in a response tweet that said, “Maybe if the Stanford band had some Whataburger they wouldn’t be so unhappy.” Their digs at Texas wrapped up when they said, “I suddenly have a strange urge to purchase a Ford F-150”, having fun with the notion that Texans love pickup trucks (which we do…doesn’t every state in their right mind?) The full script and their performance video is available on the KENS 5 link provided here.
