20 Funny Suez Canal Memes That’ll Float Your Boat
The Suez Canal is well and truly backed up. Reports indicate that a strong wind pushed the Ever Given container ship too close to one of the banks of the Suez Canal and caused it to run aground. As the bow came to a halt, and the stern continued to move forward, the 56 meter wide vessel pivoted around its bow and ended up stuck sideways across the Suez Canal. While 10% of world trade hangs in a balance, and companies resort to rerouting their fleets round the Horn of Africa like they used to sail 500 years ago, the internet of course has more “pressing” matters at hand. Namely “flooding” the internet with funny Suez Canal Memes or Ever Given Memes.
Authorities have deployed construction equipment, earth removing equipment, and an armada of tug boats, but all efforts seem to be in vain. As you’ll see in some of the funny suez canal memes below, the scale of this stuck vessel dwarfs anything the Egyptians have sent to try to relieve it from its predicament.
Many nations have offered to help the Egyptians in unplugging the Suez Canal, but so far like the canal itself, they’ve resisted all offers of relief.
With a large portion of the world’s population “stuck” in quarantine or social distancing restrictions, we find comfort in knowing that something as big and mighty as a containership can also be stuck in one place for perhaps 14 days or more.
Well without further ado, I won’t get in the way of your misery finding company so you can start enjoying a little schadenfreude, if that’s the sort of thing that floats your boat!
