IHOP becomes IHOb, and the b is for burgers

America's beloved pancake house announced its new name Monday, the International House of Burgers.

With the 8:30 a.m. announcement, Twitter let out a collective "What?!" It remains to be seen whether the change will be permanent or merely a flash in the pan (cake) to promote hamburgers. Though the restaurant may be dropping the "P" from its name, it promised that the pancakes on its menu aren't going anywhere and reassured skeptical followers that the name change was legitimately happening.

It's adding several burgers to its menu, including a Big Brunch burger with bacon, a fried egg and browned potato on top. It looks like there will seven different types of burger.

Chef Nevielle Panthaky, the chain's head of culinary, agreed, saying in the same statement that "Burgers are a quintessential, American menu item so it makes ideal sense that IHOP, one of the most iconic, all-American comfort-food brands in the world, would go over the top to create a delicious line-up of quality burgers that hit the spot any time of day".

The change is actually to celebrate the restaurant's new line of burgers. It doesn't seem like any of the restaurant chain's original items will be changed or replaced as a result of the new burgers.
