#WhoIsSue giant field message mystery solved

November 4, 2017 | Comment icon 2 comments


The creator of a huge crop message spotted in the UK by a police helicopter has finally been found.
Consisting of the words 'Sue x', the message was discovered earlier this month in a field in Tetsworth, England before being posted up on the National Police Air Service Twitter page.


The enigma sparked a slew of conspiracy theories on social media ranging from an iPhone X advert to an alien invasion, but sadly the truth of the matter turned out to be somewhat more mundane.

According to reports, farmer George Graham had created the message in an effort to apologize to his wife, Sue, for being too grumpy all the time.
He created the letters by selectively spraying the crops using a GPS-operated tractor.

"I'm not quite as grumpy and old as perhaps I make out occasionally," he said.

"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."

How did this remain a mystery for more than 30 seconds? Surely the first person you'd ask is the guy that owns the field...
