..why does this irritate me so..

IHOP announced that it'll (temporarily ?) change it's name to IHOb (Pancakes to burgers)

I just don't wanna go to a place called IHOb   

and

it defuncts one of my favorite jokes, about "Ilene, the one legged waitress, who works at IHOP"

1st isis, then n korea and now IHOP - oh the humanity..... :help:

Dont frequent IHOP so I likely won’t frequent IHOb.

Matters not what they call it

Not a big IHOP fan. I’d rather eat breakfast someplace that’s a drive-thru, who also serves pork products and has pictures of ‘Rocketman’ in the urinals.

Speaking of restaurants and jokes. Most of us have probably read about Trump's press secretary and family getting the boot from the manager of a Red Hen restaurant in Virginia. Somebody hacked the restaurants on line menu to include "erectile dysfunction."

Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".

The only thing that irritates me about IHOP (by any name) is that they stopped their all you can eat FISH FILET dinners after 1300 for Seniors at 8.95

Their fish was GOOD & a bargain.

thanks for the morning chuckle.....I started this thread as a satirical take on how a favorite joke of mine was being negated because of some stupid corporate decision to change the name of their company.....somewhere, along the way, it's turned into a culinary review

but.....the few times that I've eaten at a IHOP I've found the food (breakfast meals) to be basic but good - pretty hard to screw up eggs, breakfast meats, hashbrowns, pancakes and coffee

not understanding how anyone can say IHOP is crap but really don't care as we all have different tastes

so, it's about the joke folks, not about the food

Psyc,

Despite their name, their pancakes are second rate AT BEST.

IF I owned a pancake house I would ASSURE that we had nothing but TOP QUALITY pancakes.

One has to wonder how does one know what ASS tastes like so as to use it as a basis for this comparison.

LOL
I only dine at Taco Bell when the pipes are clogged. Other wise as a Texan we KNOW those are NOT truly TACOS.
