“What happened when the escalator broke down?"/"Everyone stopped and staired!”

An escalator riddle was posted on Reddit—Jokes on July 31, 2017:

Q: What happened when the escalator broke down?
A: Everyone stopped and staired.


“Escalators don’t break down. They just turn into stairs” and “Why was the blonde late for work?"/"She was stranded on the broken escalator” are other escalator jokes.
