Getting Twitter reactions to Whitney Houston's funeral was an odd enough task to start with. Most Twitter reaction material is about weaves, political races, and that sort of thing. I figured it would be a bunch of sad comments and lyrics, with some dark humor thrown in.
Then came Waffle House.
Thoughts on Whitney Houston's funeral this past weekend? #wafflehouse

I understand a business wanting to get some sort of discussion flowing, which hopefully would include their own hashtag, but the cognitive dissonance of #wafflehouse and #whitneyhoustonfuneral in the same tweet was too good to pass up. Maybe it has something to do with the initials matching?

Um, what? Is it just because you have the same initials or did Whitney really love waffles?instagr.am/p/HPS0RXQ-yF/

I just hope she had a chance to enjoy waffles one last time. // RT @WaffleHouse Thoughts on Whitney Houston's funeral this past weekend?

Not sure which I find more surreal, the fact that waffle house has a twitter account, or they tweeted about Whitney Houston.
