Romantic Mystery Message Goes Viral

In later news, a farmer by the name of Murray Graham created a lovely dedication to his wife in their cornfield.  The whole episode sounds pretty innocent, doesn’t it?  Well, when it comes to social media and the news, there isn’t much of anything that’s taken at an innocent-faced value.  Murray Graham had used the GPS in his tractor to spray weed killer diagonally on the cornfield, full of weeds and grass.  The outcome spelled out his cherished wife’s name.  Murray Graham did this act to pay tribute to his wife, but of course, when the media came across this and linked it to a cornfield, news spread like wildfire.  There were speculations of UFO activity all over social media and various other forms of communication.  

The farmer wanted his son — who is a helicopter pilot — to fly over the cornfield, taking a photograph of Graham’s work.  He thought that his gesture would place a smile on his wife’s face.  Who wouldn’t love for someone to make a gesture like that?  The funny thing is, before Graham’s son could find the time to grab a camera and take a couple of shots, The National Police Air Service spotted the message and brought high attention to it.  It seems as though a person cannot do anything out of innocence anymore, can they?  The officers then posted the “strange” image to social media with the following caption.  “Does anyone know Sue just south of Tetsworth, the other side of the M40? #WhoIsSue” In this day and age, who doesn’t have at least one form of a social media account, right?

So, you know that just about everyone under the sun has seen or heard about this story.  There were so many conspiracy concepts which flooded in as more and more people began to inspect the photo.  Others had even suspected that the “message” was a very sly piece of advertising from a local law firm.  A few days later when the story began to pipe down; remember, no tale lasts too long on the internet.  So, just a few days after the story and concepts had surfaced, Graham then explained that the message in the cornfield was meant as an apology to his wife because he had been moody.  Graham stated that he always liked to make gestures to his wife for being moody and so forth.  Too bad Graham’s gesture caused national attention.
