The internet's new favourite meme is undoubtedly the 'girlsplaining' or 'girl bro' joke which is all over Twitter at the moment but we now know the true origin of the picture that has taken the internet by storm.
By now you've probably seen the image of the woman appearing to be enthusiastically talking into the ear of a man who looks completely bemused by what she has to say to him.
Many of the memes to date have reimagined her being very invested in niche topics from the Napoleonic war to Dune and many many more. However, thanks to the meme archive Know Your Meme, the woman in the picture has finally been tracked down and we now know what she was saying to the man.
\u201cPAUL ATREIDES ISNT REALLY A "GOOD GUY" NEITHER IS HIS SON LETO II OR THE BENE GESSERIT. ALL THE CHARACTERS IN DUNE HAVE VERY SERIOUS FLAWS. WITH DUNE, FRANK HERBERT IS WARNING THE READERS OF THE DANGERS OF CHARISMATIC LEADERS.\u201d
Sanchez revealed that the man in the picture was actually her boyfriend Alfre but the pair have since broken up. The story doesn't end there though as Sanchez said that they weren't even the subject of the photo. She told KYM: "another girl took a photo and we were behind them."
It would also appear that the meme was popular in Argentina many years before it branched out into English-language-speaking countries. It first started appearing in 2019 with Sanchez adding: "I was featured in the newspaper in my city, many people followed me on Instagram, and people have written me and asked how it happened."
Sadly the press wasn't all good as she said she was treated like a "toxic girlfriend." It's all good now though as she has a new boyfriend, adding: "my friends laugh a lot whenever I mention it and they were surprised when I started to get famous."
In regards to the meme going viral again she says: "I honestly had no idea that the meme resurfaced again and I never realized the huge number of people who saw it! It makes me laugh a lot when everyone is surprised that it's me." That being said she has now dyed her hair black making it harder to recognise her.
