LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The possi-b-ilities are endless for what the B in IHOP's new name could be. The famous pancake restaurant, IHOP, has announced via Twitter that on Monday, June 11, they will officially change their 60-year-old name from IHOP, International House of Pancakes, to IHOb, International House of B(???). 

IHOP left the 'b' open to interpretation and people from all over began guessing as to what the 'b' might stand for. IHOP even created a Twitter poll allowing users to vote on some funny options: 

One Louisiana Twitter user suggested it could be something Louisiana is known for: BEIGNETS! He even suggested that IHOP may be adding it to their menu. IHOP responded on Twitter saying, "Don't b so quick to b sure, Allan. The possi-b-ilities are endless."

One thing is for sure - we will be left wondering what the B could stand for until Monday.

All of these could have been prevented. When ever a vehicle sits in hot temperatures, it will quickly heat up inside.
