The ship that’s blocked the Suez Canal for almost a week has shifted.
That Ever Given moved in the early hours of Monday, Egyptian time, seems certain as footage from the scene has emerged.

At the time of writing, ship-spotting site Vesselfinder depicted the Ever Given’s stern as in the centre of the canal.
But it is not yet known whether the ship is ready to move, and therefore allow other traffic to use the Suez Canal and allow global trade to resume at normal speed.
While we wait for that news, feel free to spend some time gazing at amusing memes the ship has spawned. Techie pranksters have, thankfully, managed to move on from Docker gags and container quips.

The ship also lent itself to a Java joke.

And who doesn't love a joke about the complexity of managing clouds?
Of course there were also Kubernetes and container gags.
Other memes nod to the fact that the Ever Given may have replaced the "Distracted Boyfriend" meme as the world's visual metaphor of choice.
