FOOD NEWS: IHOP Announces New Name As ‘IHOB’…But You Will Never Guess What The ‘B’ Stands For

Published

on

International. House. Of. Pancakes. We have all eaten there. We have found ourselves enjoying a short stack on “Free Pancake Day.” We have even chosen to never question just international the house of pancakes really is. The famous dining establishment mentioned last week that they will be changing their name from IHOP to IHOB, but left us all to wonder what the “B” would stand for. The easy assumption was that “Breakfast” would replace “Pancakes” in the name, seeing as the restaurant offers an expansive breakfast menu. Well you know what they say, when you ASSUME you make a flap-jackass out U and Me. IHOP really scrambled our eggs today by announcing what their new name stands for: International House Of Burgers.

Sure the restaurant chain has always offered lunch/dinner options but the pancakes were the real draw! They’ve never even tried selling a burger stuffed between two pancakes…although that’s an idea I should trademark! In any event, the announcement has left the internet confused, concerned and some might say hungry.

Well the good news in all of this is that the restaurant change is not in fact changing their name. The publicity stunt is being used to garner attention round the fact their new menu will feature $6.99 burgers with unlimited fries and drinks. IHOP Chief Marketing Officer, Brad Haley told a group at a burger tasting event last week:

“People know us for pancakes. The goal is to get people to think about us for lunch and dinner. We have a lot of white space after breakfast.”

This news broke just moments ago, but as far as attention getting headlines, I’d say Haley deserves a raise. We haven’t seen this much excitement around breakfast since those kids made that club back in the 80’s. Anyway, rest assured your favorite pancake house shall remain unchanged. Thanks for the international scare, IHOP!

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

Click below to take a look at the magical performance from last night!

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
