Blue Marlin: A Ship That Carries Other Ships.

Fogonazos has a neat photo collection of semi-submersible heavy-lift ships [wiki], basically giant floating platforms that can transport oil drilling rigs, gas refineries, and even warships.

This one above is Blue Marlin [wiki], owned by the company Dockwise, carrying the oil platform Thunder Horse which was later damaged by Hurricane Dennis.

This reminds of the recent Simpsons episode where Homer and Bart were Mob Bosses.

Homer comes home driving a Truck. Marge inquires, and Homer says it fell off a truck truck.

Then Bart comes up driving a large truck for trailing trucks. Marge inquires, and Bart says it fell off a truck-truck (car hauler) truck.

The scene ends with a gigantic vehicle carrying several truck-trucking trucks.

LOL!!!

I found the video here.
