Cargo Ship Charted X-Rated Route Before Getting Stuck In Suez Canal
The quarter-mile-long container ship that’s currently blocking the Suez Canal traced a distinctly phallic route in the hours before being blown off course and becoming stuck on Tuesday morning.
The route charted by the MV Ever Given in the Red Sea before entering the Egyptian waterway appeared to resemble a penis, testicles and butt cheeks when viewed as GPS data, per images and video shared online by the live boat tracking websites Vessel Finder and MyShipTracking.com:
Disinformation researcher John Scott-Railton suggested the X-rated route of the boat ― which is traveling from China to Rotterdam ― was not intentional, describing it on Twitter as “innocent, but terrible luck.”
Of course, other Twitter users had thoughts:
Blocking the Suez Canal being a literal dick move.
