The internet's favourite ship is coming home.
The luckless MS Ever Given, the internet’s favourite cargo ship, has been impounded by Egyptian authorities over a compensation claim worth almost $1 billion.
“Ever Given had never tried canal before.”
The last time ships got stuck in the Suez Canal, they were there for eight years and developed a separate society with its own Olympic Games.
If you had been following news of the Ever Given solely via Egyptian media, the first you would probably have heard of the ship was that it had been freed.
After drawing a dick on the ocean and blocking one of the world's busiest shipping lanes, the Ever Green has been dislodged.
The Ever Given cargo ship is blocking one of the world’s busiest trade routes, and conspiracy theorists have a lot of thoughts.
The Suez Canal Authority has made a bunch of dramatically-soundtracked videos showing the MS Ever Given not moving, as the ship holds up an estimated £7 billion worth of goods every day.
Just before blocking one of the world’s busiest waterways where 10 percent of world trade flows, the unfortunate Ever Given sailed an even more unfortunate course.
