The internet has been buzzing since the International House of Pancakes announced it would be changing its name.

Turns out, the IHOb name change is simply a stunt to promote its new burger menu, according to USA Today.

"Burgers so burgerin' good, we changed our name to IHOb". So naturally, we rounded up a few of our favorite Twitter reactions to the IHOB fiasco... On its website, the company featured a countdown clock for when the "b" would be revealed.

Twitter users also didn't think IHOP's switch to burgers cut the mustard either. "Based on fan demand, there's the chance we may create more IHOb restaurants in the future". And we imagine IHOP will be realizing before long what the people really want from its kitchen. "Can't wait to try a burger from the place that decided pancakes were too hard", the fast-food chain tweeted in response to the news.

"I'd love to welcome all of America to the world's first "IHOb" restaurant, which stands for the 'International House of Burgers, '" Darren Rebelez said.

Still, it's worth wondering why IHOP is going through all this trouble. IHOP even later tweeted out a poll asking followers to guess what the "b" stood for, with possible answers including biscuits, bacon, butternut squash, and barnacles.
