About

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.

Origin

As early as October 2010,[1] a page was launched on the image macro creator website Meme Generator,[2] 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).



Spread

On May 21st, 2011, a “dear diary” image macro was submitted to FunnyJunk[5] featuring a man writing in a journal while being eaten alive by a crocodile (shown below, left). On February 3rd, 2012, FunnyJunk[3] 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.



On January 25th, 2013, Redditor masterschmo submitted a photograph of a woman writing on a clipboard inside an overturned car titled “Dear diary…” to the /r/pics[4] subreddit, where it gathered more than 11,000 up votes and 160 comments prior to being archived. On February 19th, 2014, FunnyJunk[6] user almightybenjamin uploaded a photograph of a woman wearing a low-cut blouse with the caption “Dear diary… / Why won’t anyone make eye contact with me?” (shown below, right). In one month, the post accumulated upwards of 26,000 views and 650 up votes.



Notable Examples




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.
