Dear Diary… is an image macro series featuring photographs of people scribbling on a page with captions written as if they are penning thoughts in a personal journal.
As early as October 2010, a page was launched on the image macro creator website Meme Generator, featuring a photograph of the former leader of the Soviet Union Joseph Stalin with captions depicting him writing thoughts in a diary, many of which contain “OP is a faggot” punchlines (shown below).
On May 21st, 2011, a “dear diary” image macro was submitted to FunnyJunk featuring a man writing in a journal while being eaten alive by a crocodile (shown below, left). On February 3rd, 2012, FunnyJunk user searchia submitted a ’60s Spiderman image macro in which the superhero is shown writing on a piece of paper with a pencil (shown below, right). In the first two years, the post gained over 59,000 views and 930 up votes.

Dear Diary, Jackpot
Many image macros featuring the caption “Dear diary, jackpot” have been created in reference to a memorable quote uttered by the character Quagmire in Season 3 Episode 14 of the animated television show Family Guy, originally aired on December 6th, 2001 (shown below).
The images typically feature the discovery of a person in a compromised or inebriated state, which mock Quagmire’s sexual deviancy and disturbing behavior.
