Jailyn told BuzzFeed News that her boyfriend surprised her Monday with what he thought were flowers. "I was mad at him," she said. "Itโ€™s the only reason why he brought them."

This is what he brought her.

โ€œShe was like, โ€˜This is lettuce,'" Jamarcus told BuzzFeed News. โ€œI was like, 'Damn, Iโ€™m embarrassed.'โ€The boyfriend said that he works in a produce warehouse, and that he found what he thought were flowers unlabeled in a box.โ€œI was like, 'This is pretty cool.' I thought she was going to love it, man, and she just started laughing.โ€(OK, so it looks like this may actually be Redbor kale. We realize this; let's move on.)
