International House of...burgers?

International House of...burgers?

Last week it created its own fake news event, claiming to change its name to IHOb with the "b" standing for burgers, according to a slick marketing campaign teased last week and unveiled on Monday.

It's hard to imagine the new name could be permanent, as the almost 60-year-old restaurant chain is best known for its pancakes and breakfast menu items. Its bio was changed to "Burgers so burgerin' good, we changed our name to IHOb".

The International House of Pancakes is flipping the "p" to a "b" for burgers and the internet is flipping out.

IHOP (International House of Pancakes) has officially announced their name change to IHOb (International House of Burgers), and the fast food chain Wendy's shaded the new name on Twitter! The company will test the waters with a change that had us all asking, what does the "B "stand for?"

Antoine Griezmann ‘decision’ similar to Man Utd agreement
Lemar is now in Russian Federation with the France national side, as they prepare to embark on their World Cup campaign. Griezmann, 27, continues to be linked with a move to LaLiga champions Barcelona after another fine season at Atletico.

IHOP's specialty is pancakes, we value IHOP as a place to get pancakes, and we shouldn't forget that IHOP is a place for pancakes. The company even dropped another bomb, relating IHOB's name change to the kind of thing a child might do to equate him or herself to some sort of superhero.

There's the Classic (with or without bacon), Jalapeno Kick, Cowboy with barbecue, Mushroom and Swiss and Mega-Monster.

In an effort to put the spotlight on its lunch and dinner offerings, the chain announced on Monday that the "b" stands for "burgers".

But maybe the most savage of all was the notoriously cheeky social media team at Wendy's, who responded to the name change in true sassy form. Revamping its burger selection could convince customers to visit later in the day and for more than just hash browns and eggs.

There weren't air conditioning vents in the back of the vehicle, and the children told police they were hot, the affidavit said. A Tennessee woman is now behind bars after video shows two young children traveling in pet kennels inside her vehicle .

"I give it a year", said another.

Tell Us: Will you be trying one of IHOb's burgers?

Burger King just got back at IHOP in the pettiest way possible.
