If you weren’t already aware, or haven’t been anywhere near Twitter, you might have missed all the Suez Canal memes floating around. And yes, I did make that pun.
Dad joke humor aside, the story behind the memes is relevant. Basically, a shipping container ran aground after a sandstorm in the Suez Canal and is blocking over 200 ships from transporting goods. For those of you who don’t know, the Suez Canal is one of the most important shipping lanes in Egypt, connecting the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea.
It is not known when the shipping container will be freed, but inspiration has struck the internet and the Suez Canal Memes were born. I thought I would share some that are floating around Twitter.
