Meme: Stonks

In social networks, they laugh at business losers who lose all their money on crazy ideas and take pride in low incomes.

In mid-June, the Stonks meme gained popularity in social networks – a surreal picture of a businessman standing against a table with stock prices. With it, users make fun of entrepreneurs who make “excellent” investments, but do not understand the economy at all.

In July 2017, the picture was first published on Facebook on the page with memes. Stock Photo businessman placed on the background with stock exchange visualization, and the man’s face was changed to Meme Man – 3D-head, which became the community mascoto and the star of surreal memes. They wrote “stonks” on the image, intending to distort the spelling of the word “stocks”.

The picture was published without comments, so that users can interpret it in their own way. During 2018, the image appeared on Reddit , Imgur and YouTube .

In June 2019, the meme returned to Reddit. A new wave of jokes began after the template was published in the r / goodfaketext section, where fake screenshots of correspondence are posted. The hero of the dialogue begs the former to return and randomly sends a meme with Stonks.

Please do not do this. I really can’t live without you. I did not change you. I accidentally sent it

Soon the meme began to appear more and more often in the r / dankmemes and r / memes sections. With its help, users make fun of unfortunate businessmen who believe that they can get rich on their “ingenious” ideas, not understanding how the market works, and turning off common sense.
