IHOP reveals what "B" stands for in IHOb name change

Its bio was changed to "Burgers so burgerin' good, we changed our name to IHOb".

Turns out, the IHOb name change is simply a stunt to promote its new burger menu, according to USA Today. "If you want a burger and beer, you are not going to come to IHOP". The new IHOb Twitter account even retweeted photos and video of a construction crew putting up the new sign in LA. - Rebelez joked that diners could order a side of flapjacks and make their own pancake burger.

Wendy's wasn't done after that.

What do you think of the change? "Like that, but our cheeseburgers are still better". "Since we know you're all waiting in anticibation for what the b could be, we've chose to give you one more biece of the buzzle", it tweeted June 8. The name change, though, is meant to help the franchise connect with more people.

Whataburger's Tweet may win the internet Monday.

IHOP/IHOb responded to the move with "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery".

'IRRESPONSIBLE AND DISTASTEFUL': Eminem slammed for using gunshot sound effects at Bonnaroo
To hear a gun shot sound effect and see the entire crowd drop to the floor out of instinct is not funny, cute, or amusing. One woman tweeted that she suffers from mild PTSD and called the use of sound effects "irresponsible and distasteful".

But not all burger chains are willing to embrace the flip.

That's actually too bad because it's an unbelievable name. "I work at IHOP", tweeted an employee last week. Netflix joked, "brb changing my name to Netflib". As well as a cold pancake or an undercooked burger.

Reaction to the name change on social media ranges from excitement and anticipation to confused and baffled.

But, of course, other restaurant chains had some thoughts to share on the whole "IHOb" announcement.

The former leader in much needed hangover food has made a decision to enter into the burger joint business.
