We've all been the person in a social setting staring blankly because we didn't get the inside joke, well, the latest viral meme "James Barrett's wife" kind of feels like that - until you read the backstory.

It all started with a Facebook Messanger screengrab posted by Daniella Gay, in which she received an innocent enough question from a James Barret, "What are your plans this evening." Well like most people do at 4 am on a Friday night she wrote back, "Draw vegetables." But alas! Gay had been tricked and unintentionally caught the bait of Barrett's jealous wife who wrote: " “Hey. Just to let u know. Im james barretts wife. Fuck off.” She posted the bizarre try to stop a cheating husband and from there, “Noticing it got a lot of traction, I made a bunch of funny memes about the scenario” she told the Daily Dot. Things took off from there and overnight she had 2,000 shares and thousands of likes on the memes.

But who is James Barrett? The vegetable artist explained that he was a random guy who had probably found her through a mutual friend. According to Gay, these unsolicited messages are quite common, and she responds to many of them.

It's clear this meme isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Gay even created a Facebook meme group called, "artisan vegetable enthusiasts," where people can share more James Barrett's wife memes and vegetables.

It is tempting to think the wife is overreacting. But I dont think we see the whole picture here(pun intended) 🙂 It only a few lines from a conversation, that might have been a whole lot juicier before the veggie drawing. On the other hand, she did snoop in James phone, probably without permission... Wonder if James also was told to **** off?

"I just want him to make love to me like he did when we were in our 20's... but those damn vegetable drawings take up all of his free time."

Yeh, someone should send (force feed) her some vegetable pics. She'd probably explode. I'm just kidding of course (don't dox and spam people), but come on, who gets angry and jealous about something like that?!
