Because seeing Wall Street getting nervous gives us all a bit of a kick.
Gamestop and its stock prices are going up and you can read why from our explanatory article posted yesterday.
Essentially, members of the r/wallstreetbets subreddit are driving the price of GameStop (and cinema chain AMC) up through short squeezing hedge funds, because why the heck not?
It seems that everyone on Twitter is loving what's happening, as a way of sticking it to the man that is the Wall Street class.
Check out the memes that have been inspired by the showdown.
