IHOP reveals the mystery of IHOb

The fast-food chain Wendy's has become notorious for its sassy social media presence in the previous year, with tweets targeting both McDonald's and Burger King.

IHOP is rebranding to International House of Burgers, but ROH wrestler Cheeseburger - a self-proclaimed burger expert - says it was a questionable decision.

And it doesn't stop there.

"The chain is better known for breakfasts than for burgers, and that's exactly what the division of Dine Brands Global wants to change", Time reported.

America loves burgers, and IHOP wants to be a bigger player at lunch and dinner.

"For 60 pancakin' years, we've been IHOP", a tweet on the restaurant's Twitter account said.

Although there were multiple guesses to what the "B" stood for - and although there's already an IHOB, it just happens to be in India - the most common guess was that the "b" stood for "breakfast".

Poundworld falls into administration
Clare Boardman, joint administrator of Poundworld, said that the chain had been affected by the "challenging" retail environment. However, Deloitte said that the business would continue trading, with no store closures or redundancies planned at this time.

To lure in diners after the breakfast rush, IHOP is adding seven new burgers to its menu.

"I'm okay with the name change as long as you don't forget your roots", said another.

Professional baseball team the Philadelphia Phillies went to the trouble of making its own name change announcement video that turns the MLB franchise into the "bhillies".

A couple of days ago, people were freaking out online because IHOP released a clip that they're changing their name to "IHOB", or "IHOb" because they just flipped the P. Clever. But IHOP threw a curveball at everyone and announced that it's actually "burgers". And just this month, KFC announced plans to sell a vegetarian equivalent of its chicken to attract a new base.

IHOP's line of burgers, in comparison, is pretty standard fare. People admitted on social media that they weren't quite positive about the name change, though.

Steak n' Shake has yet to respond to what is clearly a gauntlet being thrown down, but Twitter was only too happy to let IHOp, sorry I mean IHOb, know how they felt about the switch.
