According to Salad Fingers, Jeremy was in The Great War. During the episode Present, Jeremy gives Salad Fingers a toy horse, which Salad Fingers names Horace Horsecollar. After he takes the horse, Salad Fingers consumes Jeremy and then immediately forgets, wondering where he went.
Upon arriving home after visiting the toilet, Salad Fingers gasps and sees himself sitting inside. The Salad Fingers inside the house appears to be hallucinating, seeing the "outside" Salad Fingers as a life-size Jeremy Fisher. The "inside" Salad Fingers speaks in a slightly different voice and also has rougher text showing what he is saying. The conversation starts off just like the earlier one with Jeremy Fisher, but goes on to include accusations that Jeremy Fisher has been "tailgating his daughter, with aspirations of deflowering her rose." This appears to be the other "side" of the conversation Salad Fingers had into the toilet.
The inside Salad Fingers is now seen with the Jeremy Fisher finger puppet. Salad Fingers remarks that he never did "sample the delights of your flavour", and begins putting the finger-puppet in his mouth, but the scene quickly changes to a bloody scene of the "inside" Salad Fingers eating the "outside" Salad Fingers head/brains.
It's been theorized by some that Jeremy might've been Salad Fingers' best friend before the supposed nuclear fallout of The Great War. It is also possible that Jeremy Fisher is, as Doctor Jose Baselga of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has hypothesized, fashioned from the remnants of Salad Fingers' deceased Uncle Horatio. A widely accepted theory is that Jeremy Fisher is actually the true identity of Salad Fingers. Many believe that the conversation between the outside Salad Fingers and the inside one in episode 6 relates to a memory that belongs to Salad Fingers of him (as Jeremy Fisher) walking into his house to find his father, where the conversation is taken from.
The fact that the shots of the outside Salad Fingers switched between one of Jeremy Fisher supports the idea that they are the same person. Jeremy Fisher was most likely the person that Salad Fingers was before The Great War.
When Salad Fingers eats Jeremy Fisher, only to have the shot cut to that of him eating himself may be symbolic of the fact that Jeremy and Salad Fingers are one in the same.
