Bath Twp, Mich - A police officer in Bath Township takes a radio call asking for a suspect name and hears Laurel.

The Township's police department has a history of making and posting content on Facebook that many consider funny and go viral.

Experts explain the difference on ify ou hear Laurel or Yanny could depend on a number of factors, like pitch, age/hearing ability, the medium on which you're hearing the recording and even how individual brains process pitch.

And, in case you were wondering, the original creator of the recording told the New York Times that the word is actually: Laurel.
