IHOP is changing its name...we think.
Is it a marketing ploy, a prank…or an actual re-branding? We’ll find out what IHOP is talking about next week – after the pancake chain tweeted yesterday that it’s changing its name from "IHOP" to "IHOB" next week.
The tweet didn't say what the "B" in IHOB stood for, but said there would be a big reveal on June 11th. The company formerly known as the International House of Pancakes closed about 40 restaurants earlier this year in an effort to acquire small health food chains.
- Adding to the mystery? The company issued a follow up tweet – a poll supposing what the “b” could stand for: biscuits, bacon, butternut squash or barnacles? At last check, the clear leader is ‘bacon.’
The HONEST obituary....OUCH!!
Usually when a loved one passes on, especially a parent, their kids have a hard time grieving. Not for this brother and sister from Minnesota. When their mother passed away, Gina and Jay Dehmlow made sure to let the world know they didn’t care in her obituary. But we'll get to that in a second.
As the story goes, Kathleen Dehmlow abandoned her children Gina and Jay when she got knocked up with her husband’s brother’s baby. Yup. She ran off with her brother-in-law, Lyle Dehmlow, and moved to California, while Gina and Jay lived with her parents.
Fast forward to Kathleen's passing away last week, Gina and Jay wrote the very blunt obit for their estranged mother.
Kathleen Dehmlow (Schunk) was born on March 19, 1938 to Joseph and Gertrude Schunk of Wabasso. She married Dennis Dehmlow at St. Anne's in Wabasso in 1957 and had two children Gina and Jay. In 1962 she became pregnant by her husband's brother Lyle Dehmlow and moved to California. She abandoned her children, Gina and Jay who were then raised by her parents in Clements, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Schunk.She passed away on May 31, 2018 in Springfield and will now face judgment. She will not be missed by Gina and Jay, and they understand that this world is a better place without her.
