What is a Pajama Boy?

A few people have written to ask about the origin of the term "pajama boy" 

In 2013 the Obama administration launched a website to encourage millennials to sign up 
for Obamacare. Their website featured a picture of a young man who was apparently the model of the new American male (as defined by liberals). The internet went crazy and 
many modifications to the photo were circulated.

We offer the original pajama boy here but your search will yield some clever modifications.

Whataburger Has New Majority Owner

This is going to be interesting to watch. At over 800 stores Whataburger is large enough
to get the asset-lite treatment from their new owner.

They have very few franchisees and boast that the chain has been "family owned and operated since 1950". The new owners can begin to recoup their investment by refranchising stores at any pace they choose. 

If they are planning aggressive growth the franchisees will fund that growth.

The chain has a history of erecting funky buildings. Many of those may need remodeling
or replacing.

The dining rooms are festooned with pictures of the chain's past including pictures of the founders. Those will have to go in order to make the chain "modern and progressive".

In other words it will be the same strategy used to reformulate Burger King and to some 
degree McDonald's. Stay tuned.

The third and fourth lines of data are the most interesting. We get less cholesterol with 
the impossible Whopper but pay with more sodium. Everything else is about the same.
