After announcing its new IHOb name recently, IHOP has now suffered the repercussions for the name change. The addition of the ‘b’ — which represents the chain’s new offering of burgers — has been met with jokes from other fast food outlets, including Wendy’s, Waffle House and Burger King.
Wendy’s response to the news saw the chain tweet: “Remember when you were like 7 and thought changing your name to Thunder BearSword would be super cool?” before adding “our cheeseburgers are still better.” Waffle House and Burger King both went for more subtle disses, as Waffle House tweeted a very fitting Bruce Lee quote and Burger King changed its name and logo to ‘Pancake King.’ Take a look at some of the responses below.
In other food news, the Dime branded toaster is available now.
Remember when you were like 7 and thought changing your name to Thunder BearSword would be super cool?
Like that, but our cheeseburgers are still better.

Inspired by the International House of Burgers announcement, we are also changing our name (Please do not ask what it means — we don’t know either.) pic.twitter.com/0HPQtQirHn
