A farmer in the UK unknowingly sent conspiracy theorists crazy, with an unorthodox apology to his wife
Murray Graham, a farmer in Oxfordshire the UK, went viral unwillingly with an unconventional apology to his wife, as reported by the Guardian.
The farmer accidentally sent imaginations of conspiracy theorists wild, with a message he sprayed into his field with weedkiller for his wife. Murray sprayed the letters “SUE x” into the field using his tractor’s GPS system.
“I had some leftover chemical, and I thought I’d give it a go and see if I could put a smile on her face,” he said.
The 49-year old had intended for his son to fly a helicopter over the field, taking a picture in the process, but was beaten to the punch by local police. Police, while flying by, spotted the message and posted a picture on social media. They posted underneath “Does anyone know Sue just south of Tetsworth, the other side of the M40?! #WhoIsSue”, causing the image to go viral.
Many thought the message was a cryptic message, with some even claiming it may be a warning of an incoming alien attack. Others even claimed it was a marketing ploy, by a local law firm. The farmer insists it was just his way of making a romantic gesture to his wife.
“I’m not quite as grumpy and old as perhaps I make out occasionally...As ever, everything has its ups and downs, so I thought I’d try and make a gesture at some point, and that was the one I chose,” said Murray.
