You add Whisker Menu to your panel like any other applet; right click on the 
panel and select "Add New Items..." from the "Panel" menu. In the dialog that 
appears, scroll to the bottom and select "Whisker Menu".

The /usr/bin/xfce4-popup-whiskermenu script is meant to be added to the 
keyboard shortcuts the same way that the /usr/bin/xfce4-popup-applicationsmenu 
script is added. It is not meant to be added to the panel.
