DredgeWire Recommendation: Humorous Satire from the Washington Post

Posted on April 6, 2021

The container ship Ever Given that blocked the Suez Canal is a mirror of my life waiting for a vaccine.

Ships that

waiting

The same map with better labels:

Vaccination point

Me, stuck

People

I envy

People

worse off

than me

Countries

worse off

than ours

At a closer look, you can really see my point.

Me

Weight I gained

Pre-pandemic clothing size

Another way to put it…

Stuff I bought online

Stuff I

actually

need

I can imagine how it felt when the ship got unstuck.

Vaccine day!

Weee!

But the path ahead isn’t always straightforward.

Single-dose

vaccine

Two-dose

vaccines

And, for most ships, including mine, there is still a…

… long, slow path

to normality.

Lucky bastard

Even when the

vaccination line

starts to move…

… a shot somehow

remains elusive for

most of us.

Good social

distancing

Too close
