In the world of fast food and convenience, there are few things worse than running to McDonald’s with a hankering for a large fry and Smartie McFlurry just to find out that the ice cream machine is broken… again.

In fact, the franchise was recently under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission for the issue.

Luckily, until things are ironed out – we have McBroken and creator Rashiq Zahid – who deserves a whole lot of praise for pulling this off.
