Pancakes are rather scrum-diddley-um-shious because of the tasty, liquid gold it is made of. Also waffles are hard solid as a rock if i may (no legs at this point) might hurt babies teeth. and the teeth of your elders. Finally waffles have a higher average calories then pancakes, waffles being about 82 calories, and pancakes having about 63 calories. In conclusion pancakes are better than waffles.

Con

Of all the scrum-diddley-um-shious-ness that pancakes have (which, I agree, is quite a bit), waffles simply have more. This is because of the pockets that waffles have to hold in any toppings desired. These pockets can also negate your health argument, because it is much easier to hold fruit, such as strawberries or mangos, in a waffle rather than a pancake. Also, as a rebuttal to your "might hurt babies teeth" argument, this simply isn't true. This is because the waffle's crispiness can be varied without burning or undercooking the food, leading many to believe that waffles have god-like powers sent down from the heavens.

"Diner Adrian Mosley, 33, is dead after getting into an altercation with Waffle House cook Quintavius Martin, 25, in the wee hours of Friday morning. This is the second Atlanta-area Waffle House shooting this month."(gawker.com) this quote directly shows how the fans of waffles are follow and are over came be the evil surrounding waffles. Also Pancakes may be the real god send here from accounts from the ufo case in eagle river where occupants of this "space-ship" gave Joe Simonton pancakes shown in the quote,"Overview of the close encounter at Eagle River, in which Joe Simonton was given "pancakes" by the occupants of a UFO which landed outside his home."(ufoevidence.org). Your move.

These Waffle House shootings are either from jealousy from the pure awesomeness that emits from waffles, or simply because Mosley did not order waffles, to which he immediately asked to be shot. To your "God" argument, UFOs generally do more harm than good. If a UFO gave waffles to Simonton, then I would've surely forfeited this round. Now that I've invalidated your argument, let's talk bout the actual difference between pancakes and waffles. "Traditionally, waffle batter is made with egg yolks and the whites are whipped separately and folded in just before cooking. This gives waffles a much airier texture than pancakes--the batter ends up being a foam... of course, you can always use pancake batter in a waffle iron, though Belgian waffles made that way are pretty bready." (thefreshloaf.com) This being said, "waffle batter can make for a decent pancake batter, but pancake batter does not necessarily make for a good waffle batter." (thefreshloaf.com) This means that the ingredients used in waffles are simply better than the ingredients used in pancakes. Checkmate.

The ingredients may be better but waffles have more calories and more carbohydrates. Now Hitler invaded Belgium so what's to say he did not eat waffles so waffles=HITLER.

Waffles do generally have more fat, but that's for a good reason: waffles are more crispy, and fat is much easier to crisp without burning. If you want crispy pancakes, you need to either burn them, or use waffle batter. I would disprove your Hitler argument, but it simply doesn't make sense. I assume one of your future arguments will somehow include waffle irons, so I might as well address that now. You may consider waffle irons to be a waste of time and money, but there are a few things to argue against that. First, making waffles takes less time than making pancakes (Generally around 8 minutes). Also, the sheer awesomeness that emits from the waffles and the irons that they come from pays for the irons many times over.

Since your phone broke, I suppose I should forgive you for missing this round. Therefore, I forfeit this round as well.

pancakes unlike waffles (frozen variants) are able to be customized and made to the consumers preferences, though this is not true for frozen variants of pancakes however. Also waffles may be higher in almost all vitamins and other nutrients however pancakes can be made out of the following materials potatoes, sweet potatoes, regular pancake batter, and pancakes batter which fruit chucks or fruit extracts.(Waffles=Hitler.)
ImmortalVoddoler

Con

Was that even an argument? Waffles can be customized just as much. You ate waffles just the other day, and when is the last time you had pancakes? (His response when I asked: "half a month or so"). If waffles=Hitler, then you ate 4 Hitlers the other day. (The argument will be continued for one more round in the comments) (Pancakes=Satan).

Although Satan is technically a religious deity, pancakes have no soul. This means that every time you eat pancakes, you lose part of your soul to Satan himself. What is that deal for? Pancakes.
Waffles are not only better tasting and better for you than pancakes, but they also let you keep your soul.

Waffles do indeed equal Hitler thank you for realizing that. Also if Satan equals pancakes then that means that pancakes are a religious deity or his/hers favorite food, either way pancakes are superior praise the almighty pancake hallelujah.
