The Twitterverse was set on fire yesterday when the International House of Pancakes, or IHOP, announced that it was changing its name to IHOb (short for ‘International House of burgers’). The competition wasted no time jumping all over the restaurant to make fun of what seems to be an odd decision:
Not really afraid of the burgers from a place that decided pancakes were too hard.— Wendy's (@Wendys) June 11, 2018
Remember when you were like 7 and thought changing your name to Thunder BearSword would be super cool?— Wendy's (@Wendys) June 11, 2018
Like that, but our cheeseburgers are still better.
As much as we love our pancakes, we'd never change our name to Whatapancake— Whataburger® (@Whataburger) June 11, 2018
We’re as serious about pancakes as @IHOb is about burgers https://t.co/IQ7J2TX47T— Red Robin (@redrobinburgers) June 11, 2018
We don't usually throw shade, but seriously? That's what all that was about? Here's a real burger for you. #ChilisBoss #IHOb pic.twitter.com/eTVmtd9vir— Chili's Grill & Bar (@Chilis) June 11, 2018
Burger King didn’t necessarily tweet anything snarky, but they also decided on changing their name!

Not every competitor decided to be mean to IHOb over the name change. TGI Friday’s decided to extend a little comfort to the restaurant, since they were getting picked on:
