IHOP changing name to IHOB

The company has not disclosed the meaning of the new acronym.

Many social media users were attempting to guess what the "b" could stand for, but others simply began pointing out the logo looks eerily similar to o.b. tampons'. But for the Arab's on Twitter it made flawless sense, hysterically.

The popular breakfast chain hinted at the possibilities on Twitter with options like biscuits, bacon, butternut squash and also a curve ball choice of barnacles.

On Wednesday morning, IHOP announced on its Facebook page that on June 18, it will change its name by flipping the P (for "pancakes") to a B.

One user Chris Tadros pointed out in a tweet that it has always been "IHOB" for Arab parents. Arabic has no "p" sound, and speakers of the language usually substitute a "b". Hence, Arabs found a solution by choosing the closest alternative - the Arabic equivalent of the letter "b".

UFC 225: Australia's Robert Whittaker primed for Yoel Romero fight
UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker easily hit the mark, but after a hard cut, his opponent, Yoel Romero did not. The main event is positioned on top of arguably the most exciting card of action the UFC have put together this year.


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

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

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

Well, this could just be a publicity (or should we say bublicity) stunt, but till then we all have to wait for June 11.

"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. The restaurant chain has about 1,650 locations.
