IHOP Is Changing Its Name to IHOB and Twitter Is Shook

The company has not disclosed the meaning of the new acronym. Some suggested the "b" could stand for breakfast, bancakes or burritos - and a few other inappropriate proposals too.

Many have guessed that the "B" might stand for "breakfasts" or "bacon", but the Powers That Be over at the chain soon-to-be formerly known as IHOP are remaining tight-lipped regarding the specifics of the new moniker until Monday, when "all will b revealed". But for the Arab's on Twitter it made ideal sense, hysterically.

Mohamed El Dahshan tweeted "My beoble the Arabs have taken over Ihob so much, they changed the name to something we can bronounce!"

Northern Ireland abortion law violates human rights, judges say

And another user said those with Arabic-speaking parents, it has been like that from start.

That's because in the Arabic alphabet, no letter exists with a hard "p" sound, making it tough for Arabic speakers to pronounce the letter P. Arabs have worked around this issue with the closest alternative - the Arabic equivalent of the letter "B". IHOP will release more on Monday.

"For 60 pancakin' years, we've been IHOP", wrote the company.

Google releases ethical principles created to govern company's work on AI tech
The goal of this project was to process and catalog drone imagery, and Google's rank-and-file workers were none too pleased. Pichai's assertions about not using AI for surveillance also left something to be desired, Eckersley added.

Safe to say people were shook, and days later, nothing has changed.

Although the pancake giant did not say what the "b" means, it said it will announce what the "b" stands for on June 11. The restaurant chain has about 1,650 locations.

IHOP tweeted Wednesday morning a short video that depicts the IHOP logo flipping its "P" into a "B" with the promise of a name change on the way.
