Graffitti that bugs me

Lebreton Station WB 002 Originally uploaded by Dave Scrimshaw.
There is graffitti on the canal wall behind the westbound bus stop at Lebreton Station. Someone took the trouble to climb a fence, go down into the canal and paint the words "hue suck" in metre high white letters with black outlining. I suppose it is possible that the artist is making a statement against colours. They used white paint. Still it seems almost certain that it is intended to be a punnish insult to everyone who reads it. If I ever get the energy and nerve to go somewhere I'm not allowed to go, wade around in possibly polluted water, and paint seven very large letters, I hope that I will come up with something better to write.
