“I am broken when my name is spoken. What am I?”/“McDonald’s ice cream machine.”

The ice cream machine at McDonald’s (a popular fast food restaurant chain) seems to break down often. “The ice cream machine at EVERY McDonald’s is ALWAYS broken” was posted on Twitter by Gabe Hartwig on April 26, 2009. “Every McDonald’s ice cream machine is broken” was posted on Twitter by KHIMJU on January 26, 2010.
 
“I am broken when my name is spoken. What am I?” is a popular riddle that was posted on Twitter by Hannibal Barca on March 2, 2019. The usual answer is “silence,” but Hannibal Barca then provided the jocular answer, “Mr Biggs ice cream machine.”
 
The riddle was posted on Reddit—Jokes on March 3, 2019:
   
Q: I am broken when my name is spoken. What am I?
A: McDonald’s ice cream machine.

   
“Every McDonald’s should have a flag they fly at half mast when the ice cream machine is broken,” “The adult version of the ice cream machine being broken at McDonald’s is the car wash being broken” and “Well slap my ass and call me McDonald’s ice cream machine cause I am broke” are other sayings about the McDonald’s ice cream machine.
