Wendy’s started it by tweeting, “Not really afraid of the burgers from a place that decided pancakes were too hard.” Several other burger joints also chimed in, but none as big of a burn as Wendy’s. A&W joked it was flipping it’s logo. Just because. They didn’t really know why.
Burger King had been silent…until someone noticed they changed their profile picture on Facebook to say, “Pancake King,” even changing its logo to pancakes, from burgers. It makes you wonder. Is IHOP loving all the press or hating it? They say there’s no such thing as bad press…

Inspired by the International House of Burgers announcement, we are also changing our name (Please do not ask what it means — we don’t know either.) pic.twitter.com/0HPQtQirHn
