    IHOP is officially back to its original identity as the International House of Pancakes. On Monday, the chain announced on social media that its time as IHOb — the International House of Burgers — had come to an end. "We're giving away 60¢ short stacks on July 17 from 7a-7p for IHOP's 60th birthday. That's right, IHOP! We'd never turn our back on pancakes (except for that time we faked it to promote our new burgers)," the chain posted on Facebook.

    The White House has launched an internal investigation into how a comedian's prank call earlier this week was connected to President Trump. ABC News reported on Saturday that the Trump administration confirmed the claim that comedian John Melendez was connected to the president. The White House said it is now reviewing how the call occurred. Melendez said last week that he tricked Trump into believing he was New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez (D). In audio uploaded to “The Stuttering John Podcast,” Melendez converses with Trump, bringing up immigration concerns and Trump's executive order to stop separating migrant families at the...

    It’s a yearbook controversy, which has a Valley charter school issuing an apology to parents Monday night. Parents who just received the yearbook from Sonoran Science Academy were in disbelief after seeing a page in which a student with a Muslim first name was voted “most likely to bomb the U.S.” Bree Brown has an 11-year-old daughter at the school and said her daughter showed her the post over the weekend and appeared disturbed by it. “I looked down and read, most likely to bomb the U.S. and I just sat there for a second and thought, no way.

    STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – The sound of gunfire and someone shouting “Everybody down, everybody” shocked moviegoers sitting in the lobby of the Bow Tie Majestic 6 movie theaters Sunday night, but the incident appears to have been a juvenile prank. Five children ranging in ages from 10 to 16 were arrested and face both criminal charges and potential school disciplinary action after police say they used toy cap guns to stage the mock attack in Stamford, reports CBS2’s Tony Aiello. Police say three members of the group had noisy toy guns and fired them in the theater while shouting “everyone...

    A Twitter user by the name of “Hotep Jesus” walked into a Starbucks store and received a FREE cup of coffee simply because he said “I heard y’all was racist”.

In response to this incident, Starbucks announced that they will close 8,000 stores for one day in May for an afternoon for race-bias training. Bryan Sharpe, who goes by “Hotep Jesus” on...

    British firefighters were "seriously unimpressed" when they were called out to rescue a YouTube prankster whose head was cemented inside a microwave. A video posted to YouTube by 22-year-old prankster TGFbro shows his head being cemented inside a microwave with Pollyfilla with a plastic bag protecting his face and a tube feeding him air. The prankster tells his friends that, despite the precautions, he is having trouble breathing, and they attempt to free his head -- without success. The West Midlands Fire Department was summoned to the scene and firefighters spent about an hour freeing the man's head. "We're seriously...

    It’s getting to be that time of year again: when jack-o’-lanterns glow and mummies and witches roam the streets. But there is one Halloween tradition that really gives me the chills: Jimmy Kimmel’s annual candy prank. Every Halloween for the past six years, ABC’s late-night talk show host has encouraged viewers to tell their children, on the morning after the holiday, that they have eaten the kids’ entire candy stash. Parents record their children’s reactions and send the videos to Kimmel, who broadcasts some of the clips on his show.

    A British "prankster" has said editors at right-wing news website Breitbart replied to spoof emails purporting to come from Trump adviser Steve Bannon. The prankster shared emails in which staff discussed doing "dirty work" against US President Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner. Mr Bannon has returned to Breitbart after being fired from the White House. "I don't much care for the Trump administration or Breitbart," the prankster told the BBC. One of the emails purporting to be from Mr Bannon said the former White House chief strategist would be "bringing forth my wrath on Ivanka and Jared"....

    A schoolgirl prank gone gruesomely wrong left an 11-year-old Bronx girl hospitalized with severe facial burns — and her rage-filled mom bent on revenge. Relatives of hospitalized Jamoneisha Merritt called Thursday for arrests in the scalding of the girl at her friend’s Bronx apartment. The victim’s mother Ebony Merritt appeared outside the home of Shernett Panton and her 12-year-old daughter Aniya Grant Stuart, spewing obscenities and threats. “I’m going to cut your face, you f---ing b---h!” Merritt screamed at Panton. “I’m going to burn your f---ing house down! You let this happen to my daughter!”

    Is a "noodle mass" a legitimate form of religious service? This has been the source of heated debate for years in the northeastern German town of Templin. Now, a court has issued a ruling on the matter. The controversy centers on four signs in the small German town of Templin, in the northeastern state of Brandenburg. At each of the four main entrances to the town, a sign erected by the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster informs locals of the date and time of their weekly "noodle mass," exactly like how the Catholic, Evangelical and Protestant denominations advertise their...

    So this happened. I have a hypothesis. Gay people often get away with murder. Certainly behavior that straight men could never get away with. So my producer and I put that to the test. Behaving the exact same way and even repeating the exact same phrases to women at the mall. The only difference? One of us is gay. One straight. The reactions are, well... entirely expected. You're welcome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngATnQFL-FQ

They discussed another Russian aggression in state of Limpopo (made up name from well known Russian CHILDREN's book) and installing Putin's right hand marionette as its President by the name of Aibolit (another well known Russian CHILDREN's book character, Dr. Aibolit and loosely translated play on a sound one makes when sick, Dr. OhItHurts!). Maxine Waters agreed this Russian aggression must stop now! She offered help in...
