Something You Should Know About The Suez Canal

The Suez Canal is an artificial sea-level waterway that acts as a great shortcut between the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. It is a major route for ships trying to get from Europe to Africa and Asia and vice versa.

The canal is very important.

In the year 2020, about 19,000 ships passed through the canal. In short, an average of over 50 ships passed through the canal each day throughout the year.

You can imagine how many ships have been affected in the days the ship has been stuck in the canal. In fact, a lot of Amazon, Ali Express, and many other orders have to be transported through this waterway.

The unfortunate ship is called MV Ever Given (Evergreen). It happens to be one of the largest cargo ships in the world.

It has a length of about 400 meters and a gross tonnage of more than 220,000.

How Did This Happen?

When the ship was passing through the canal, high winds and a large storm hit it, making it lose control. As a result, it was pushed sideways, and in the process, it got stuck after hitting the bottom of the canal.

At first people thought the problem would be fixed quickly.

Unfortunately, after several days of effort, the ship was still stuck. Sadly, estimates indicate that it might take weeks before the ship is completely free.

Internet Saw An Opportunity

Obviously, the accident has been a massive blow to international trade, and everyone took note of the issue, including the internet. Consequently, there have been a lot of memes about the incident.

Actually, some applauded the effort being made to get the ship free. Some compared the herculean task the tiny excavator is trying to do to get the ship free to the effort necessary to complete a thesis or get through a to-do list.

Others tried to compare the situation to how Austin Powers tried to turn around a baggage carrier in a narrow corridor.

Obviously, some made fun of the situation. Others suggested that the ship could be repurposed into a camper.

More pessimistic commenters pointed out that 2021 is not turning out to be better than 2020 but has instead become a sequel to the trying year.

Memes On All Platforms

Memes about the beached ship have been on all social media platforms, including Facebook, Reddit, and Imgur. These posts have received hundreds of thousands of likes, upvotes, and shares by now.

Some people speculate that they are sure that the ship has some of their orders and will not get them until it gets unstuck.

Several people suggested that this would make an amazing plot for the film, Fast and Furious: Suez Drift. Unfortunately, there has been nothing fast or furious about the whole situation at this point.

Some have joked that a magical hand could pop out of the sky and quickly reposition the ship, which hints at some sim video games.

Then someone suggested that maybe people canceled the orders the ship was carrying, forcing it to go back, a process that got it stuck.
