IHOP changing name to IHOB

Pancake Chain IHOP Soon to Become IHOB! Nothing New for Arab Speakers Find Out Why IHOP soon to change its name to IHOB

Earlier this week pancake lovers got served a piping hot pile of confusion when iconic breakfast chain IHOP announced it would be changing its name after 60 years of being known as the acronym for International House of Pancakes.

Speculation abound. Surely the "b" could stand for "breakfast", some suggested on social media. But for the Arab's on Twitter it made ideal sense, hysterically.

The change is supposed to take place Monday.

One user Chris Tadros pointed out in a tweet that it has always been "IHOB" for Arab parents.

Confused? Don't be. 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".

Farrah Fawcett's Son, Redmond O'Neal, Charged With Attempted Murder
O'Neal was responsible for all of the attacks, which police described as random, according to People magazine. In a jailhouse interview with Radar Online last month, O'Neal blamed his father for his problems.

"For 60 pancakin' years, we've been IHOP", the initial tweet reads. Across the Middle East, Pepsi is known as "Bebsi" and Pizza is "Bizza".

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

The restaurant made the surprise announcement via Twitter, telling its hundreds of thousands of followers (and the world, for that matter) that after six decades as IHOP, it will go by its new name, IHOB, beginning on Monday, June 11. The restaurant chain has about 1,650 locations.

"We're serious about the quality of food and our menu, and this name change really reflects that", IHOP's Executive Director of Communications Stephanie Peterson said, USA Today reports.
