IHOP Is Changing Its Name to IHOB and Twitter Is Shook

An IHOP sign at a restaurant in Hialeah Fla

On Wednesday's episode of "The Opposition", Jordan Klepper was certain that the impending International House of Pancakes restaurant chain name-change masks a bad threat - and he brought in nearly his entire team to figure out what it is. What does the "b" stand for?

The company has also held polls that allow people to guess what the "b" stands for and choices include biscuits, bacon, butternut squash and barnacles, with bacon now leading.

DINE Brands, which operates both the IHOP and Applebee's restaurant chains, said in the most recent fiscal year, IHOP stores generated sales of $3.3 billion. But for the Arab's on Twitter it made ideal sense, hysterically.

"For those of us with Arabic-speaking parents, its been "IHOB" from the very start", said Ala'a Ibrahim.

IHOP even shared a poll about what the new name could be. Across the Middle East, Pepsi is known as "Bebsi".

"Someone Arab has bought significant share of IHOP and now they're the International House of Bancakes", said another. "I ask as someone who for years was known as the girl from "bakistan". Nobody knows. This week, they have been going back and forth with Twitter users about the possibilities, never fully releasing its meaning.

The post has sparked fierce debate as thousands hop onto the social media platform to take part in discussions about what the mystical "b" in the name change could stand for. The restaurant chain has about 1,650 locations.

Found in suburban Los Angeles in 1958, the International House of Pancakes shortened its name to IHOP in 1973, according to the company's website.

When a tweeter named Patrick begged for answers, IHOP responded: "batience, Batrick, batience!"
