"A waffle is like a pancake with a syrup trap” is a jocular statement that has been printed on posters. The joke was a signature of comedian Mitch Hedberg’s comedy act since at least 2001.
Similar sayings include “Waffles are just pancakes with abs” and “A waffle is just a more considerate pancake. It’s like, here, let me hold that syrup for you in these convenient boxes.”
