The plight of the unfortunate container ship that has blocked the Suez Canal has provided amusement for millions online, as the global chaos sparked by the incident continues to have massive financial impact around the globe.

While progress has been made on moving the ship, with the Ever Given being shifted 30m overnight, it remains fixed in place.

The bizarre blockage has been celebrated across the internet.

Several websites have popped up offering their own stance on the issue - with one giving users the chance to try and move the ship with Suez Canal Bulldozer (spoiler alert - you won't have much luck). 

You can also find out if the ship is still stuck at the helpful website istheshipstillstuck.com

And if you want to see how the massive ship would look if it was stuck at other places around the world.  

The incident is also being celebrated in meme-form, with many seeing themselves in a photo of the plucky digger working away at the base of the massive vessel.
