Chupa Chups with a message – Carrer d’ Arlet

What do you think the graffiti artists were trying to convey? In the case of Chupa Chups (above) I know that the graffiti refers to the fact that the company that makes them doesn’t treat its workers all too well (hence the reference to sucking blood), but as for the rest, I’m not sure. Iconic (or ironic?)
