UPDATE: IHOP lies, toys with our emotions
UPDATE: It was all a lie.
IHOP said the whole IHob name change was fake.
The restaurant known for its pancakes tweeted Monday the only reason they said they were changing their name on June 11 was to "promote our new burgers."
IHOP even changed its Twitter bio to say, "if at first you don't pancake... pancake, pancake again."
Wendy's, who called out IHOP when they first announced the meaning of the "b," said they weren't surprised by the lie.

Ending weeks of speculation, guessing and joking the International House of Pancakes (IHOP) will now be known as IHOB, with that 'B' standing for burgers.
The internet speculation was all over the place, with the easy guesses being 'bacon' or 'biscuits.'
But the marketing ploy will give diners 100% Black Angus beef, hand-pressed burgers with low-carb-friendly bun choices.
On the newly-minted IHOB Twitter page, the profile says "Burgers so burgerin’ good, we changed our name to IHOb. For burgers."

An IHOP representative confirmed the brand will have more news to share about its name swap on Monday, Today.com reported.
Many social media users took guesses at what the last letter of the new name means.
