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"...

Yep.

Misheard lyrics are pretty darn funny. Jimmy Fallon highlighted the hilarity on The Tonight Show with this week's hashtag #MisheardLyrics.

Scott Weiland Doesn’t Really Rock on the Range [Video]

A few weeks ago, Scott Weiland received a TON of criticism for an absolutely terrible performance of 'Vaseline'. Admittedly, some of it came from me. It was bad, and a lot of people accused him of being back on heroin. (I didn't, I thought being on drugs might have helped him.)

Weiland could have CRUSHED at Rock on the Range to show that his 'monitor problems and tiredness' excuse had any merit. Unfortunately, he sounds pretty much the same. Check out the video, especially when he gets into 'Vaseline'.

Hatebeak’s Parrot Metal Returns With ‘Number of the Beak’ Album

A few years ago, there was a small movement in metal, where animals were the lead vocalists of a few bands. The 'big names' of the genre were Caninus, and Hatebeak. Hatebeak is the band from Baltimore formed in 2003, and fronted by an African Grey Parrot named Waldo.

Not the most metal name, but an awesome metal vocalist.
