Listen, who doesn't love waffles at a complimentary breakfast? You get to pour in the batter yourself, turn that iron over, then boom, in a matter of minutes, your own delicious waffle.

While I understand how awesome waffles are, I'm not exactly sure how 30 people managed to get kicked out of a hotel in Ludington Mich., over a waffle maker.

Jimmy Fallon’s #MisheardLyrics Tweets Are a Trip [Video]

When my little brother was about ten he thought the lyrics to Lit's My Own Worst Enemy were as follows,

"Can we forget about the things I said when I was drunk?I didn't mean to call you fat"...

And for a very long time I thought words to Van Halen's "Panama" were actually "Hand in Mine, hand in mine"...
