IHOP Announces Name Change, Internet Goes Wild Guessing What It Is

This is a little odd.

So earlier this week, IHOP, the extremely popular pancake joint, announced they were going to be changing the name of the restaurant, flipping the “p” to a “b,” stating they’d reveal what it all means on June 11.

As you might imagine, the strange decision has taken the Internet by storm as folks across the globe have put their thinking caps on in an effort to attempt to figure out what it all means.

Apparently there’s not a whole lot else to do in 21st century America.

“For 60 pancakin’ years, we’ve been IHOP. Now, we’re flippin’ our name to IHOb. Find out what it could b on 6.11.18,” said the tweet, posted Monday.

Thus far, the post has generated more than 12,000 comments and has been “liked” some 20,000 times. From senators to musicians, everyone on social media was getting in on the action, offering speculation over what the “b” stands for with comical reactions.

“You can make it International House of Bowling if you want, so long as I can still get three eggs over easy, corned-beef hash, and dry rye toast,” wrote Sen. Bob Menendez. “Heck I go to IHOP so often, the b’s gotta be for Bob.”

The reactions to the decision were, shall we say, a bit mixed:

IHOP then posted a poll of possible explanations that the “b” could be, with bacon being the most popular answer.

A rep for the company stated that the name change was for real, but did not indicate whether it was permanent or not, which means it’s likely for some sort of promotion or something.

Like all you can eat bacon. That would be awesome.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
