A boat may be stuck, but Twitter isn’t when it comes to cracking jokes.
A colossal container ship called Ever Given has been wedged sideways in Egypt’s narrow Suez Canal since Tuesday. Due to the cargo ship blocking one of the world’s busiest waterways, it created a maritime traffic jam that grew to more than 200 vessels on Friday, disrupting global trade.
And although there’s been efforts to move it, Ever Given won’t give.
But, when ship happens, you can rely on Twitter to have a hull of a time making fun of the situation.
Here are a few that have made a splash online:

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.

after years of bitcoin and reddit short selling and credit default swaps and a million other things i don’t understand it’s so refreshing to hear that global commerce is in peril because a big boat got stuck in a canal

Love the guys earnestly replying to Suez Canal tweets with ways to get the boat unstuck, like men standing around a 400 meter long pickle jar. pic.twitter.com/cnyuZSvlyW
