The International House of Pancakes has filed a lawsuit against a church group called the International House of Prayer claiming that the group is illegally using the pancake house's famous acronym.

The Kansas City, Missouri-based church group "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," the lawsuit says.

So, IHOP, the pancake house, is asking a judge to get IHOP, the church group, to stop using the letters IHOP.

Until the dispute has been resolved, IHOP (the restaurant) has added a special dish to their menu.

BLT(Baptism, Liturgy & Theology) garnished with Virgin Olive Oil and Martyr Tartar Sauce accompanied by Belgian Papal Waffles . Finish off with one of a selection of John the Baptist desserts.

Reports suggest that the new dish is selling out, especially on Sundays.
