The '''Blue Ball Machine''' is one of the most frequently-viewed pages on all of YTMND and the most viewed Hall-of-Fame member as of September 2, 2006. The site is a patchwork of animated GIFs linked together accompanied by a looping hook of the song ''Breakfast Machine'' from the film ''Pee-wee's Big Adventure.'' The image was created by hundreds of [[Something Awful]] forums goons who made one frame each. It has earned this title by accruing a staggering four million pageviews since its inception in October of 2005.
Due to its enourmous viewcount, it is touted as the greatest YTMND ever created.  But the original creator, Earthbounder, does not feel the same.  He claims that [[Cosby Bebop]] is the greatest ever.  He is also not willing to let his YTMND grow old and decay.  He claims that if the rating falls under {{****}} he will have it deleted as soon as possible.
The origin for the image comes from a patchwork of interconnected animated GIF files created by members of the [http://somethingawful.com SomethingAwful] forum members. As gaining access to the original thread requires a paid membership to the SomethingAwful forums, a link to the original thread cannot be made available.
Fad sites based on this usually involve other variations of the blue ball machines or other "loopy" images.
On December 21, 2006, the site lost its title as YTMND's most-viewed site to [[How to prank a Telemarketer]].

The irony of Blue Ball Machine consisting of a gif stolen from another website has been lost upon most users.
