The Wendy's Twitter account is one of the best places on the internet to go if you're looking for a quality burn. That's never been more true than this week, when IHOP (the International House of Pancakes) announced they were changing their name to IHOb (the International House of Burgers). Pretty much everyone thought the re-branding was a pretty dumb idea, and Wendy's didn't hide their opinion of their new competitor.
Twitter users were eager to know: what did Wendy's think of IHOP's new name?

Wendy's didn't disappoint.

Perhaps Wendy's should consider a similar move?
@soIoucity @Wendys @IHOb Yes, turn into #Wenpys and sell us some square pancakes!— Rick (@Rick) 1528752024.0
The joke even prompted a surreal conversation between several corporate brands.

What is IHOb supposed to say after a burn that brutal?

No matter who loses the fast-food wars, Twitter users win.
