…will be crushed to hear this.

IHOP to buy Applebee’s for $2.1 billion

The last time Kcruella and I were in a IHOP, it cost an arm, a leg and three quarts of blood and ~ both service and meal ~ sucked to high heaven.

    Hmm. I’ve never had a bad meal at an IHOP. We love ’em. Met my wife in one.

    I’m all for it, as long as IHOP will let me get a medium-rare hamburger once they own the joint.

    Will this merger mean a new name to grace the already cluttered landscape of American advertising? ApplePancakes? International House of Apples? Something else entirely? Hmmmm!

  4. John says:

    So, do they have IHOPs in Pennsacola? Or are you just waiting for Dunkin to buy them both?

  5. John says:

    There’s always the option of a road trip to Ovieda…

  6. The_Real_JeffS says:

    John, according to Qwest, there’s a Dunkin’ Donuts at 1701 Saint Charles Avenue, in New Orleans. The distance is only 201.6 miles, about a 3 hour drive……and that’s better than half the distance to Ovieda. THS could beat THAT easily.

  7. Hmmm…since I will INDEED be IN New Orleans this weekend…must be a sign from God.

  8. John says:

    But could she beat it without a fender bender?

  9. Kcruella says:

    JUST OPENED!! The new Dunkin Donuts less than half a mile from my home.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    My Bride and I went visited a Dunkin’ drive through that just opened up nearby. Awfully convenient, civilization.

  11. John says:

    Yeah, but none of youse NJ types can beat the Dunkin inside my local grocery store. The shopping carts even have little coffee cup holders attached to the handles, courtesy of Dunkin’.

  12. Mr. Bingley says:

    The ShopWrong StuperStore near us has one of those Dunkins’.

  13. Yes, but us NJ types have Starbucks in our grocery stores. (or we can walk from the Shoprite to the Dunkin Donuts.)

  14. The_Real_JeffS says:

    But could she beat it without a fender bender?
    Maybe, if she kept her mind on the road, and not on those deeeeeelicious Dunkin’ Donuts at the destination.
    Of course, there’s always the possibility that Qwest is wrong, and that store closed down long ago, possibly due to the deprivations from Chimpy McHaliburton BusHitler’s handling of Katrina.
    Never can tell, these days. Maybe she’d better call first, huh?

  15. John says:

    Really, I didn’t know ShopWrong was doing that, too. Up here their presence is too small and Stop and Shop got the Dunkin’ contract.
    Of course, I’m pretty sure neither chian has a presence in FL. Perhaps THS can write to the president of Piggly Wiggly.

  16. nightfly says:

    She can always get Entemann’s from her local Publix.

  17. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Well, someone could mail her an empty box from Dunkin’ Donuts; she could spend a day making her own, putting them into the box, and pretending that they’re the real thing.
    Who ever does that should leave a few crumbs in the box, so that THS can annoit her own creations with The Blessed Pastry™.
    Not me, though….we don’t have a DD here.

  18. Entemann’s is in the Commissary, Diptera. Not my favoritest confection is available (yummmms, used to have their chocolate chip cake for my birthday) but,they ARE here.
    Keep typing, Jeffy boy.

  19. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Just bein’ helpful, Sis!

  20. John says:

    Even I would not be so cruel as to mail THS an empty DD box. An empty waxpaper take-out bag, maybe … 😉

  21. Jon (no h) says:

    Heh. The last time I went to an Applebee’s none of our orders were properly cooked. There’s only one IHOP left in my state, and it’s miles away. 🙁
