The inscription on the field in England has led to confusion of users of social networks
MOSCOW, 5 Dec — RIA Novosti. Users of social networks was puzzled by the inscription on the field in the English County of Oxfordshire. The inscription represents the word “sue” (Sue) and the English letter “ex” (x). It was removed from a helicopter, local police, and then published in Twitter.
“Does anyone know sue South of Astarta, on the other side of the M40 highway?”, asked their subscribers to law enforcement officers, and then called on to use “the power of social networks” to “find sue.” People began to tweet with relevant hashtags — #FindSue (“Naitou”) and #WhoIsSue (“Who is sue”).

Began to appear a variety of theory — for example, that in the place of the cross (the letter x) the treasure is buried or that it is a local law firm (the word sue means “to sue, to prosecute”). Some users do not rule out the possibility of an alien invasion.
It turned out that the tombstone for his wife made a local farmer Murray Graham using chemicals for processing of fields. An “x” on the end, apparently it means kiss.
That his work became public, he learned through friends.
The farmer told The Telegraph that he wanted to show his wife how much he loves her, despite his “grumpy”. “I still have some unused chemicals, I thought that I would try to use them and see if I can bring a smile on her face,” he says.
The inscription was supposed to take a picture of the helicopter with his 21-year-old son, but police did this first.
According to Graham, he’s glad it happened, although he surprised, how popular was his writing. “I didn’t expect it to go national, international, intergalactic level,” said the farmer.
