It was set free from the Suez Canal—but not from our social media feeds.

The quarter-mile-long Ever Given, the tanker ship wedged in the Suez Canal for days, was finally unhinged from the shoreline Tuesday. Prayers were answered for salvage crews, and for the public, it's been the greatest meme since Bernie Sanders sat arms crossed with mittens at the presidential inauguration, ending up at Franklin's Barbeque and every other place in Austin and the globe.


With the magic of meme-making, the ship has ended up in the likes of, well pretty much everywhere—lakes, highways and canyons. And we couldn't leave Austin out of the fun.
