Whoppy Machine Broke is a text-based snowclone popular on Tumblr in which one person approached another asking for something, and depending on what it is, the other person responds with "X machine broke."
On November 26th, 2016, Tumblr user golfgalaxy posted a dialogue text post wherein a person goes into a Burger King and begins ordering a "Whoppy" (slang for "Whopper") when the Burger King employee interrupts him by saying "Whoppy machine broke." The post, shown below, has gained over 9,700 notes.
Over the course of the next few months, the post began being applied in snowclones where "whoppy" was replaced with various other things. One of the most popular, posted by unlocklist, referenced Full Metal Alchemist and gained over 6,800 likes (shown below).
On March 29th, 2017, memedocumentation documented the meme, noting that references to "whoppy" and fast-food-based text posts had existed before "whoppy machine broke," but the snowclone itself didn't originate until November 26th, 2016.
