A cargo ship is stuck in the Suez Canal, but these 19 memes are here to save it
‘Imagine the entire world watching you park your car? Humiliating’
A massive cargo ship is wedged in the Suez Canal in Egypt. It’s one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, with about 12 per cent of global trade passing through it – and this container ship is now blocking it, and it may take weeks to get cleared. Obviously this isn’t ideal for anyone, but what it has given birth to is a lot of memes about the Suez Canal cargo ship.
Just before it got stuck in the Suez Canal, the ship drew what can only be described as, well, a dick. Feast your eyes on it:
just to reiterate: about 10 percent of world trade has been at a standstill for 2 days because a cargo ship drew a giant dick in the Red Sea then wedged itself sideways in the Suez Canalhttps://t.co/hlN1PcmMhW pic.twitter.com/wfSKdrtpkj

10. So much chaotic energy
I can't explain why but the boat stuck in the Suez Canal has the exact same chaotic energy as a gender reveal party gone wrong

11. Plain and simple: It’s just stuck
I love that the boat is stuck because every other piece of global news is so hard to comprehend or explain.
The boat? It's just stuck. Stuff won't go. Boat needs to be not stuck. That's it.
