The International House of Pancakes, more commonly known as IHOP, has changed its name.

After 60 years, the restaurant chain became "IHOb" - and the "b" stands for "burgers."

IHOP, er, IHOb, announced the change last week, but didn't reveal what it meant.

The chain's Twitter bio reads "Burgers so burgerin’ good, we changed our name to IHOb. For burgers."

The president of IHOP Darren Rebelez said that they are still IHOP, but this move was a marketing campaign to show that the chain is more than just breakfast food. Rebelez added that they want customers to "take our burgers as seriously as our pancakes."

The majority of IHOP restaurants will not change their signs.

The internet, however, doesn't seem to be taking the name change very well:
