The International House of Pancakes is (allegedly) changing its name

The International House of Pancakes is (allegedly) changing its name

Earlier this week pancake lovers got served a piping hot pile of confusion when iconic breakfast chain IHOP announced it would be changing its name after 60 years of being known as the acronym for International House of Pancakes. The Twitterati has gone berserk as they can not help but wonder what would "b" stand for? Is it breakfast, brunch or biscuits? But for the Arab's on Twitter it made ideal sense, hysterically.

And now 45 years later, IHOP appears to be heading for another tweak. Now, we're flippin' our name to IHOb.

According to the renders, Samsung may redesign its placement of the fingerprint sensor, moving it below the phone's dual cameras. There will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, 6GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of built-in storage.

IHOP even shared a poll about what the new name could be.

"Someone Arab has bought significant share of IHOP and now they're the International House of Bancakes", said another.

India, Uzbekistan review bilateral ties
The two leaders also deliberated on initiating a joint project in Afghanistan which will be in the sphere of capacity building. Gokhale also said that the bilateral meeting between the two leaders, on the sidelines of the SCO summit, was "positive".

So for many Arabs, IHOP has always been known as IHOB.

Not all were thrilled with the name change announcement as many took to Twitter to post their confusion or attempt to decipher the mystery for themselves. Nobody knows. This week, they have been going back and forth with Twitter users about the possibilities, never fully releasing its meaning.

Lyon Cancel Dealings With Liverpool Over Nabil Fekir Transfer
Fekir is one of the best attacking players in Europe who would be a great signing or Liverpool in the summer transfer window. Liverpool were obviously cautious of spending £54 million on a player that could have a long-term knee issue.

"Right now, we're keeping mum on the extent of the name change, but I can tell you that it's tied to news we'll be making on Monday and reflects how serious we are about a new launch for the brand", Peterson said. And yes, this entire thing could very well just be a publicity/bublicity stunt by the breakfast chain, which has 1,671 locations in the U.S.
