What does this graffiti mean?

This is painted on a bridge over Hwy 401 eastbound near Guelph, ON. Every time I see it I wonder what it means? Anyone know, or have you seen anything like it? The flower on the heart was added a year or more after the rest of it appeared, so I suspect that's not really part of it but was just added by someone who thought it would look cute.

It's a personal ad. "Seeking handsome wealthy executive for love."

Handsome = circled face, squared
Wealthy = dollar sign
Executive = man in a suit with a briefcase
Love = heart

Or maybe a solicitation. "Handome executive will pay for love."

I'm not just ignoring the yellow "flower" but also the red plus sign. The original graffito is probably just what's painted in black.

That is the Walmart logo inside the heart...May change the "values" on the other side of the equation maybe?

It's possible that the red plus was added later, but I travel this road fairly frequently and it's been there since I first noticed it.

I don't think anyone else mentioned this, but is that a devil's tail circling up to the right of the man?

So what do we have so far.....

A square, but devilishly handsome executive with lots of money equals love found at Walmart?

Well, I guess you never got off on Brock Rd to investigate, but a little detective work on Google Earth reveals it is an indicator for a Ride Share Lot... Two businessmen riding together saves money (HEART). It would have helped if you had told us which overpass... took me awhile to determine it was Brock Rd. Ontario has a rather well developed rideshare/carpool program and you can sign up online.

Interesting, but disappointingly prosaic.

There are two Walmarts in the vicinity but I doubt they are linked to this, but they may be sponsors. Its an interesting topic and anyone who knows railroading is familiar with the history of hobo folk ways and indicators for good camps and handouts and the like. Seems it has evolved into a rather nefarious organized crime gang (Freight Train Riders of America - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), but interesting just the same... Perhaps we need something similar for Boondocking? LOL! Someday, when all the baby boomers are well aged and full timing in their beat up RVs (is that day already here?) we may evolve such a culture... Or have we already?!
