Why did my iPhone send out a message from someone else?

Last night I sent a photo of my cat to a friend. When I sent the photo, another text, not written by me, popped up and was sent along with the photo. How did this happen?

I did not write this text and it is completely unrelated to the photo. The author refers to himself as "a numbers guy" and I am a non-numbers female. No one has ever sent me this text message.
What's especially strange is that the text refers to one of my old high school teachers, so it was written by someone I probably know. I actually think I know do who it is - we are Facebook friends and have messaged back and forth a bit about this teacher, though he has never sent this specific message to me, nor does he have my cell phone number.
I just installed the new Facebook Messenger app and understand that it is pretty invasive. I am wondering if one of my friend's FB messages somehow ended up in my text messages.
I have an iPhone 4G, Version 7.1.2
