by at .  Updated at .

For once, IHOP is not here to give you an immediate heart attack from a menu that occasionally mixes in some breakfast food underneath gobs of whipped cream and chocolate.

Instead, IHOP is here to rock your world.

The long-running franchise has announced on Twitter that it is changing its name to IHOb on June 11, stunning Internet users and causing them two ask two basic questions:

  1. What does the b stand for?
  2. What the heck is wrong with you, IHOP?!?!?

The restaurant says it won't answer that first question for a few days, while social media folks continue to ask the second one.
