On Wednesday's episode of "The Opposition", Jordan Klepper was certain that the impending International House of Pancakes restaurant chain name-change masks a awful threat - and he brought in nearly his entire team to figure out what it is.

What do you think the "b" in IHOP's new name could be? "Now, we're flippin' our name to IHOB", IHOP tweeted.

Burritos, Brexitfest, bacon, biscuits, along with several NSFW words have been thrown out as possibilities for the mysterious lowercase 'b'. Its curious customers would have to wait until June 11 to find out. But for the Arab's on Twitter it made ideal sense, hysterically.

"What do y'all mean name change", Chris Tadros wrote, "this is what Arab parents called IHOP for years". Now, we're flippin' our name to IHOb.

Mrs Merkel will now face questions three times a year, though some opposition MPs complained that the format is too inflexible. Merkel said she will try to discuss problems such as Iran and tariffs with President Donald Trump.

Confused? Don't be. That's because in the Arabic alphabet, no letter exists with a hard "p" sound, making it tough for Arabic speakers to pronounce the letter "p". Across the Middle East, Pepsi is known as "Bebsi" and Pizza is "Bizza". IHOP will release more on Monday. International House of Gravy?

"Did an Arab person take over IHOP?" asked Fatima Syed, a reporter on the Toronto Star newspaper. The restaurant posted a tweet suggesting that it is changing its name to IHOB.

One Twitter user claimed he'd heard from an "inside source" that this is all lead up to a summer-long burger promotion for the brand, others are convinced it's simply just a switch to International House of Breakfast.

When a tweet from Patrick Ford begged the company to "stop b-ing elusive and tell me what is the answer b!", the company responded, "batience, Batrick, batience".
