IHOP is now officially 'International House of Burgers' and the internet has some thoughts
Well, the mystery is finally over.
The International House of Pancakes, better known as IHOP, announced a few weeks ago that it was changing its name to "IHOb," but let the world guess what the "b" could stand for.
The chain restaurant announced Monday morning that the "b" officially stand for "burgers," turning the name of the restaurant to International House of Burgers.
This could be some sort of promotional campaign to garner some more interest in the restaurant (clearly that worked), but the company has gone as far as changing its logo on all social media accounts and even changing its Twitter handle to "IHOb."
This decision has a lot of people on the internet saying "really?" and tweeting out hilarious tweets that are drenched in confusion and shock. Here are some of the funniest below.

IHOP is now IHOB? This is like last seeing a cousin when he was 11 year old and little leaguer. Then you see him again at 14 and he's goth and into gothic metal.— (((Harry Enten))) (@ForecasterEnten) June 11, 2018
Some people are even saying that the "b" is going to stand for something else besides burgers.
