Apparently, the International House of Pancakes does not want you mixing up whether you wanted to order up a stack of hot cakes or whether you wanted a few “hallelujahs” and “Amens.”
IHOP has just filed is a lawsuit against IHOP.
That’s right. IHOP claims that a Missouri based church known as the International House of Prayer or IHOP is infringing on their brand by using their acronym.
Lawyers from the pancake food chain feel that they church, “selected and adopted the International House of Prayer name, knowing it would be abbreviated IHOP. IHOP-KC intended to misappropriate the fame and notoriety of the household name IHOP to help promote and make recognizable their religious organization.”
I can’t say that I disagree with them, but this is bound to make a few Christians upset and spells disaster for the International House of Chanukah.
