Very recently there has been a collective reaffirmation of this nickname in response to current Mayor Martin Chavez's announcement of a commercially-driven re-branding of Albuquerque as the "the Q." Many people feel as if this new nickname has nothing to do with Albuquerque, but with a gentrified version of the city that has been sanitized to be more palatable to outside investors. Nevertheless, new city buses and other city-run aspects of the community have adopted/been branded with this new catch-phrase.
person 2: " What the fuck does The Q have to do with Burque???"
person 3: "Fuck that stupid cunt. Its always been called Burque."
It is the inspiration for a forthcoming real-estate venture, to be known as "Burque Homes".
Burque Homes slogan will be:
"Burque Homes...holmes. Get your home from Burque Homes, holmes."
Yo soy de Burque!!!
