Where's Homestar?

These photos are of a set of towers that are part of a concrete mixing plant in Thornleigh, just down the road from us. I first spotted this rather unusual piece of graffiti several months ago, and only got around to taking some photos of it just this afternoon.

I cite these as evidence of the general spread of the Homestar Runner meme.

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Exhibit C

My point is this: Of all the bits of graffiti that could have made it to the top of that concrete tower, how did an Icon of Geekdom beat out some punk's personal tag? Heck, when do you ever see an Icon of Geekdom graffitied anywhere?
