Mark Zuckerberg made an absurd amount of money while getting grilled by Congress for ten hours.
During that time, both Zuckerberg's net worth and the company's stock increased dramatically.
Per CNN Money:
All told, Facebook's stock has gained about 4.5% since the start of trading Tuesday morning.
So Zuckerberg, who owns more than 401.4 million shares in Facebook, got nearly $3 billion richer in the past few days. His stake in the company is now worth around $66 billion.
The company's total market value has increased by nearly $23 billion since Tuesday morning.
It only makes sense that the inventor of the most influential social media platform ever would generate a viral meme. Unfortunately for Zuck, the internet has fixated on the "booster seat" the vertically challenged tech mogul sat on during his Capitol Hill appearance.
Another widely circulated image mocked at Zuckerberg's robotic demeanor by depicting him as Data, the dorky android from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Here are a few more honorable mentions:
Don't feel too bad for him—being the "butt" of the internet is definitely worth $3 billion.
