This Potato Sack Girl Was NOT Responsible For Blocking The Suez Canal


Egypt's first female ship captain says she was blamed for blocking the Suez Canal despite being on a different ship hundreds of miles away.

Marwa Elselehdar was working as a first mate in command of the Aida IV in Alexandria when the Ever Given became wedged in the canal, bringing the major shipping route to a halt.

The doctored headline was based on a genuine story by Arab News profiling her success as Egypt's first female captain.  

The 29-year-old does not know who started the rumours but believes she was targeted because of her gender.

She told the BBC: 'I was shocked. I felt that I might be targeted maybe because I'm a successful female in this field or because I'm Egyptian, but I'm not sure.'

Women only make up two per cent of the world's seafarers according to the International Maritime Organisation

I'm going to level with you guys. I woke up pissed off today. It's weirdly a good feeling because for me, waking up pissed off means baseball is back, but I can't get this goddamn 1-3 start out of my head. There won't be much "journalism" out of me today because I won't be able to give too much unbiased opinion on whatever world event I'd be reporting on for Barstool Sports because my brain is just to cloudy thinking about the 9th inning last night, Moncada looking like asshole, and Robert swinging at every single pitch delivered to him. It is really fucking with me. 

That was until I saw the headline and picture from the Daily Mail that I linked above. It had an orange glow... like the aura. You know the aura? I seen it, man. Cute girl? Check. Clickbait headline? Check. And guess what the best part is? She had the easiest IG account I've ever stalked. Like I googled her name and her IG instantly popped up. It's NEVER this easy. So instead of writing a bunch of bullshit where I blog about whatever X story and make a few jokes I stole from Family Guy or Eastbound and Down and then quote a movie, I'll just let her IG do the rest of the talking for me. Potato sack girl like you read about!  And no, she was NOT responsible for that ship that blocked the Suez Canal.
