PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — If you find yourself in close proximity to an IHOP but really craving a burger, fear not: The restaurant known for its variety of flapjacks flipped the “P” for a “B,” temporarily changing its name to the International House of Burgers (IHOb).

But many restaurant chains quickly took to Twitter to grill the name flop for the griddle-less fare. (Don't worry: They will still sell pancakes.)

Wendy's remained savage as usual in its response.

Some users wondered if others were planning on joining in the burger game.

A few restaurants dragged IHOb for changing a name after so many years in the flapjack biz.

Others declared a name change themselves. Burger King changed its name on Twitter to Pancake King, along with a photo of a stack of syrupy cakes.

And even our own Phillies got in on the fun.
