The Stonks guy has taken over the web: Check out the best memes
Poor financial decisions have never been better physically represented than with “Stonks guy”, an animated & incidental Jeff Bezos look-a-like figure wearing a suit who stands in front of an image representing the stock market. Stonks, which is an intentional misspelling for “stocks” has become a trending word these past two weeks, especially given the insane story behind GameStop and the investment app Robinhood.
Stonks guy has been making the rounds in a collection of memes, much like a presidential candidate before an election, popping his head into d@&% near every Twitter thread that even hints at the idea of the stock market. Perhaps part of this trending figure is due to Elon Musk, who famously tweeted out his support for individual investors by tweeting “#Gamestonks” last week. Needless to say, the memes have been out of control.
Stonks guy, just like Bernie Sanders, may be here to stay for a while, folks. Get comfortable, and invest your time wisely as we take you through some of the best Stonks memes on Twitter.

The stonks meme business is quite undertaking. These memes are simply too much to wrestle with.
