Is the machine broken? ¹
Ryan Cohen has broken his month-long silence, beginning before the insane price volatility sparked by RC Ventures being awarded three seats on the board.
At 1:57 PM on February 24th, 2021, Cohen tweeted an image of a well-lit McDonalds Ice Cream Cone, accompanied by a frog emoji.
Ryan Cohen’s Tweet on February 24th 2021.
Reverse image searching reveals that the photo was taken by Irene Jiang of Business Insider, so unfortunately, Ryan was not enjoying the cone himself. This also reveals that the tweet is not an update on Cohen’s life, but yet another cryptic message.
Yesterday, GameStop’s CFO resigned amid incompatibility with the transformation and insider complaints.
The photo is from a Business Insider article titled ‘McBroken,’ about a 24-year-old engineer created a website that tells you if your McDonald’s has a working ice-cream machine.
What does it mean? The $GME community has some theories:
- The ice cream cone is the cheapest item on the McDonald’s menu. Cohen is saying that GameStop is the cheapest stock on the market.
- The frog emoji is “not a cat,” a reference to Roaring Kitty’s hearing statement.
- Frogs symbolize alertness and readiness, as they always respond to nature’s timing. As frogs croak before the rains, they are considered bringers of rain, cleansing, and fertility. The visible changes over the course of their life (from tadpole to frog) make them symbolic of change, adaptability, and rebirth. snaketracks.com
- The ice cream machine represents GameStop, which is often “broken,” is Cohen the fix?
- According to Volition Capital, investors in Chewy, Ryan Cohen is no stranger to McDonald’s soft serve.
- The resignation of Jim Bell fixed the machine.
- McDonald’s slogan is “I’m Lovin’ It,” is Cohen lovin’ the attention on him from Cramer? The CFO resignation?
- We are waiting for the cherry on top.
No matter what, we can all agree on something within the next few days…
We are in for a treat.
February 25th Editorial Update: As pointed out to us by GMEdd reader Daniel, uploading the soft serve photo into tineye.com’s reverse image search and sorting by oldest reveals that the photo was first used in a Business Insider article titled, “I ate soft serve from 7 major fast-food chains, and the winner surprised me,” by Irene Jiang.
