What's The Diff?

The things Quicken Loans team members care about and want to share with the world

Charlie Kondek is the first official DIFF Captionator

Charlie Kondek is the DIFF and always will be

Charlie (eight times down up) Kondek may actually just become the official winner of all DIFF Caption contests forever. We’ll still put the pics out there and ask for comments, but Charlie will probably already win. I mean, he deserves to. If you don’t like that, send in a better picture of yourself than this one. 

By the way, here is Charlie’s official acceptance letter as he is crowned the first DIFF Captionator.

Dear Diff,

Attached please find an image of me wearing my crown as the first
official Diff Captionator. I am so pleased that The Diff has recognized
my genius. I want to thank all the little people that helped make this
happen. Like, for example, the Lollipop Guild. And the smurfs. Thanks,
Shorties. I also would like it known that I hereby issue a challenge to
all future would-be Captionators: what you see here is the gold
standard of captionating. You come at the king, you best not miss. And
all you sucka MCs should call me "sire." I won’t stop captionating til
I retire.

Yours very sincerely,

Charlie Kondek, Capsquire

P.S. Caption, if you dare, this pic of me in all my regal majesty! I’ll go first.

we shall caption on the beaches,
we shall caption on the landing grounds, we shall caption in the fields
and in the streets, we shall caption in the hills; we shall never be

  2. I’m blown away by your admiration and support! I feel like an aging heavyweight champion. Surely, someone is going to come along and try to take my belt. Er, crown.

  4. P.S. – Like I keep telling Clay, Rogain is for your head, not your arms.

  6. I don’t know what it is, Frank. It’s like the more I bench press, the hairier my arms get. It’s some kinda alpha male thing. I don’t pretend to understand it.

  7. No wonder I am hairless (or is it that Nair bath I take monthly…)
