Describe the sound of a moist waffle falling onto a hot griddle.

A soft vacuous sucking noise as the waffle extricates itself from it's temporary dungeon of the griddle (which is, incidentally, a very odd place to cook a waffle!), followed by a soft splort as the waffle falls onto the surface of choice, and sort of gives a wiggle of resignation before it settles down upon it's new surface, continuing it's existence as an underdone unrisen breakfast food.
