By now, you’re probably aware of the Suez Canal and the traffic jam incident.

Previously, we mention that with the calamity of the Suez Canal, people are taking this chance to unleash their inner comics.

If you’re looking for updates to the Suez Canal blockage, and whether Ever Given is finally released from its torment in a lighthearted manner, here are two Twitter accounts to follow.

Stuck Container Ship ‘Updates’ Us On their Progress of Getting Unstuck Through Parody Twitter Account

As of 6.25am on 29 Mar 2021, Singapore time, the MV Ever Given is still stuck in the throes of the Suez Canal.

And how do we know that?

Because MS Ever Given (@EVER_GIVEN) said so.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that MS Ever Given is really apologetic about the entire incident.

In fact, the parody account is so helpful it decided to highlight what the ship’s unfortunate incident means to global world trade:

Not The Only One

Now, if you’re looking for something a little bit more than just updates and apologies, this Twitter account @SuezDiggerGuy might be what you’re looking for.

Other than reporting on the status of the “rescue”, the parody account also goes about it in a humorous manner.

Read: We failed, will try again tomorrow.

Here’s a sneak peek at how much resources were mobilised to dig the ship out too.

Of course, it’s not all jokes and legitimate real-time updates are given as well.

Here’s a reminder: if operations to start unloading the ship commences, it’ll take more than a couple of days to complete.

Which is worrying for certain ships.

Ships With Livestock Now Worried

While ships carrying oil and other cargo can last for a while, it’s a different story for those carrying livestock.

Livestock on ships require water and food for the animals, and these ships normally carry only a few extra days of supply.

Are you angry at someone now, and can’t get him or her out of your mind? Well, watch this video and you’ll know what to do next:

Right now, the ships carrying animals only have a few options; to find the nearest port to restock, find a country that needs your livestock or get feed from a barge in what is known as “midstream loading”.

On a separate note, for those who are wondering what the consequences might be from this major incident, you can check out this article here.
