This decade has been one for the books (and not in a good way). From the COVID-19 pandemic invading our world in 2020 to the six-day Suez Canal obstruction in 2021, it seems nothing can ever go right. Now, speaking of the incident involving the Egyptian waterway, it appears an identical situation has occurred again as another ship got stuck and blocked the trade route.

Talk about an impossible maneuver!

There's no perfect way to describe a ship getting stuck in the Suez Canal than by referencing the infamous three-point turn from Austin Powers. It's such a classic scene, and it's all we could think about when we heard another ship blocked the canal.

If this were true, 'The Flash' still wouldn't be shelved.

It's no surprise that Ezra Miller found his way into the Suez Canal memes.

The 29-year-old actor has been at the center of various controversies and allegations this year, so we really wouldn't be too surprised if they were somehow involved in this incident (in all honesty, they have nothing to do with this situation).

He is truly thriving these days.

Whoever drove this second tanker clearly knew what they were doing. Maybe they saw how much attention the 2021 Suez Canal obstruction received, and the driver wanted to have their time in the spotlight while simultaneously reuniting the digital world via new meme potential. Ugh — talk about a genius plan!

Our kids will be miserable reading the textbook chapter about the 2020s.

Thank goodness we're no longer in school because if we had to read a textbook chapter about the 2020s, we would simply never stop crying. With that said, good luck to the next generation because they need all the luck to get through that section.

The "girlsplaining" meme is everything to us.

This "girlsplaining" meme has been all over our Twitter feeds lately, so what's one more? Plus, for all we know, the girl might've been actually telling her former boyfriend about the Suez Canal and its well-established history.

Don't make the same mistake twice ... or thrice, in this case.

If we had to drive one of these massive tankers, we would 100 percent end up getting stuck in the Suez Canal. Sure, the general public thinks it's easy to navigate one of these ships in the canal, but it's probably one of the most challenging tasks ever, and hopefully, we never have to experience this situation (for now, we are sticking with journalism!).
