Who doesn’t love IHOP’s nommy pancakes? They are simply wonderful. And, of course, IHOP wanted to wish all the moms out there happy Mother’s Day yesterday… so they did it with a tweeted joke. The left proceeded to have an absolute meltdown over it. The tweet said: “If you have pancakes in your tum tum, does that make you a pancake mum mum? Happy Mother’s Day to ALL the moms out there!” I thought it was cute. Silly me.
This revolves around the abortion insanity out there. IHOP’s Twitter account shared the joke in a tweet, which featured a picture of an obstetric ultrasound. The ultrasound showed a healthy stack of pancakes rather than a baby. As we all know, the left does not have a sense of humor we are aware of these days and they latched onto the accusation that IHOP was making a pro-like political statement which is just nonsense. This could be a sonogram of the stomach – but everyone was hot to take it the wrong way.
Those on social media that got all offended by the joke simply embarrassed themselves. Some found the joke very distasteful and downright offensive. Go figure. I thought it was funny.
There were a ton of reactions with my favorite being: “LIFE STARTS AT CONSUMPTION.” Now, that’s clever. Lol. You have to give IHOP credit… as much blowback as they got over the tweet, they didn’t take it down. Good for them.

“One user complained, “What the f*** is this s**t? Why didn’t you just post a stack of f***ing pancakes like a normal f***ing pancake house?” That particular user’s tweet has received more than 2,000 likes at the time of this writing, which makes it one of the most popular tweets on the thread.
“Another social media user added, “And @IHOP weighs into the most controversial space in American politics in the last 50 years.”
“This is offensive to babies AND pancakes,” one Twitter user whined, while another said that they would like to fire the social media person who shared the tweet to begin with. “I would like to personally fire whoever sent this tweet out,” the user said.
“When the company’s Twitter account apparently refused to take the tweet down in the face of criticism, one social media user complained about that, writing, “How is this still up after 4 hours!?”
“Another user — who apparently had “medical training” — wrote, “I feel comfortable enough in my medical training thus far to confirm that the uterus is NOT in fact connected to the GI tract.”‘
IHOP really thinks people are just sliding whole stacks of pancakes down their throat and into their uterus https://t.co/XI8hUlzBdK

The harmless tweet sparked a social media firestorm with some pointing out an anatomical error while others assumed the message was meant to stir up a personhood debate – a topic that has made the headlines since Georgia enacted the controversial “heartbeat” bill last week. ‘Touchy’ doesn’t begin to cover it here.
IHOP’s tweet received more than 1,000 retweets, 5,000 likes, and nearly 3,000 replies. Their previous tweet had only received around 1,000 total interactions. The Instagram picture received more than 9,000 likes. IHOP is not even bothering to answer those who are feigning outrage either. I respect that.
When I eat pancakes they go straight to my uterus https://t.co/aXottCodoO

I especially loved how the media twisted it all into accusing IHOP of being stupid and not knowing anatomy. Or that they were making a pro-life message to gin up political unrest. Guys… sometimes a stack of pancakes is just a stack of pancakes. Give it a rest already and lighten up.

I’m no expert on anatomy but I’m pretty sure pancakes never make a trip there during the digestive process https://t.co/ON7jxgagC9
