In a television moment that could only happen in Houston, a Space City man was caught by TV cameras catching a 4-pound fish out of yesterday’s flood waters while eating a Whataburger.
ABC13 aired the footage of the man on Thursday, showing him with a large bass in one hand and a Whataburger in the other as he waited for the floods to recede near I-45 and Cross Timbers Street on Thursday. A Facebook user named Andrew Mattheis posted a photo of the news story on Facebook, racking up tens of thousands of shares, likes, and comments on this uniquely Houston flood survival strategy.
Scope out the photo below:
Fortunately, it looks like this unidentified man will be able to score a burger without having to wade through a giant river across the highway very soon — a flash flood warning is still in effect across Harris County until 7 p.m. on Friday, but the waters are finally receding.
