Zynga just closed at 3.06 per share. The good news? That’s not an all-time low, as it dipped below $3.00 in July. However, it’s hovering at dismal levels, compared to the schadenfreude-inspiring state of Facebook (19.15).

But let’s put that in real dollars, shall we? A single share of Zynga is now worth fewer American greenbacks than a Shake Shack milkshake ($5.00), a Sunday New York Times (also $5.00) and the Metrocard cost of a trip to Coney Island and back ($4.50).

$3.00 isn’t going to get you much in the way of virtual items, either.

However, it is still possible to assemble a decent meal off the Wendy’s 99-cent value menu for less than the cost of a share of Zynga, provided that you are not very hungry.
