Hard "G" for life!
@Doctortoast, *double taps with a silenced 9 mil*
@Josh42A, I have no idea why you got so downvoted...maybe stuckpixel is full of liberals or something. I thought it was funny
@double decker, thanks man.
@The pigeon whisper , XD, I was actually just about to comment that when I saw this!
@Doctortoast, I think its cool that there is clearly two ways to pronounce it jif and gif. Why would its creator have spelt it gif if it were to be said as jif. It is obviously gif
Choosy mothers say Jif
Gif is short for graphics interchange format. In graphics you pronounce it with a hard g sound. Not a j sound. Therefore it is gif.
@TheSonOfRageAndLove, that said, those who created gifs pronounced it as jif. Or so I read.
@TheSonOfRageAndLove, is it bad that I pronounce gif like G-I-F
@TheSonOfRageAndLove, his name is Steve whilwhite. Google it..he says its jif.
@ TheWot, I don't care what he says it is, he has been overruled by the majority.
@PoetaFit, k.. Going to start a group that will change the pronunciation of the "horse" to "stfu"...we'll be right cause every other person who knows the real pronunciation will be over ruled by the majority. No big deal.
@LegoLass, the creator wanted it to be like "choosey developers choose jif", but "the gif that keeps on giffing" is obviously superior.
@DustMonkey, Hahaha that was pretty witty!
@TheSonOfRageAndLove, Scuba is also a word that began as an acronym ( self contained underwater breathing apparatus ) but you don't follow@the pronunciation of the original words in that case
The great debate: gif or jif?
@Pokemon Masturbator, Upvote if you say gif
@Pokemon Masturbator, Upvote if you say jif
@Pokemon Masturbator, the people that wrote it literally said "choosy programmers choose gif" like the Jif slogan, "choosy moms choose Jif"
@Pokemon Masturbator, I've always pronounced it like "jif" 'cause of words like giraffe and Giovanni.
@Naty2RC, Grape, gorilla, gross f**k your logic
@Spodermen, none of your examples have g followed by i
@Works at IKEA, Girls
@Spodermen, oh ok thank you, you give the gift of knowledge
@Works at IKEA, thx I cri evry tiem
@Spodermen, I'm not saying I'm right. I'm just saying I associated those two words first. Get the gist of what I'm saying? ;)
@Naty2RC, yes, we are all entitled to our opinions. Gizzard
@Naty2RC, I think I will go die with honor
@Pokemon Masturbator, doesn't everyone say it gif? Isn't that the debate, what saying gif means? Technically even those whose pronounce it jif are still saying the word gif, just with a different pronunciation. I'm great at parties.
@Pokemon Masturbator, I say G-I-F. Fvck me, right?
@Pokemon Masturbator, It is literally 1 letter off from gift which is pronounced with a hard G. It makes zero sense that gif a partial of gift would be pronounced differently
@Works at IKEA, gift
@Pokemon Masturbator, i say both.
@Deceitful Echo, finally. Knowledge is found
@Deceitful Echo, that's actually a really good point
@Pokemon Masturbator, the creator of the gif said he hates when it is pronounced with a G. He said the real pronunciation is jif.
@Pokemon Masturbator, I'll upvote you from 365 to 665
@Naty2RC, the g in gif stands for graphics which is a hard g.
@Pokemon Masturbator, I always said "G-I-F" (I would say each letter, rather than saying it as a word.) Is this weird?
@Pokemon Masturbator, such likes, very gif, wow, much cool
@Pokemon Masturbator, I meant upvote! I am so sorry!
@Pokemon Masturbator, wow, surprises me how many people say gif not jif, I'll say jif to my friends though and they'll look at me like "What the h3ll did you just say?"
@davestrideur, yeah but that's dumb. They should be mandated to say Jraphics Interchange Format
@DustMonkey, ...I'm honestly not sure how to respond to this.
Ha, as I'd Anonymous could ever accomplish anything.
@CriTiKa1, don't mess with things you don't understand and go back to making great Internet videos
@JosefVStalin, Aww, are you a member of Anonymoose?
I say gif because people don't know what I'm talking about when I say jif
@JStormCatcher, Ping. A new challenger has arrived!
@JStormCatcher, I just say " p-n-g
"It's pronounced JIF, not GIF." -Steve Wilhite 2013. He created the Graphics Interchange Format, while working for Compuserve in 1987. Nuff said
@Poser Pete, Ya and now idiots are spelling dog as "doge". Certainly no one cares about 24 years ago.
@Poser Pete, or 27.
In this world, it doesn't matter what is "technically correct" only what the popular consensus is. That's why people still call Native Americans, "Indians."
@A Wild Bidoof, Calling native Americans Indians is wrong.
@A Wild Bidoof, actually, the circumstances are very different.
@A Wild Bidoof, I call them redskins
Give, Gift, Gimp, Girdle, Gills, Gib, giddy, giggle... Making comparisons to other words is stupid, because there's also giraffe, ginormous, gin, giblets, etc. The only thing that matters is how the majority choose to pronounce it, as that is what shapes the language as it evolves over time. I myself favor the hard G GIF.
Well guys, according to the English dictionary it is pronounced "JIF". Debate closed.
George giraffe gin geodude geography any ology gif generate ledge etc etc etc
@Joker420, Girth, Gift, Gimp, Girl, Girrate, Give, Gizmo, Gills, Gif.
Jif is peanut butter Gif is a short video on funny pics/ ifunny
Last time I checked jif was a peanut butter
I always said G I F.
@Screw YOLO, Yes! Circumvent the system!
TWITCH JUST BEAT POKEMON
@Booty butt cheeks, ALL HAIL LORD HELIX!
The word closest to gif I can think of is gift... Just sayin'
@Beloscar, what about Ginny weasley?
@noballs, Gift literally has the word "Gif" in it.
*inserts comment from previous gif. related picture*
It's pronounced jif, the creator said so. Everyone else can just shut up because they're wrong and sore about it.
@Richy , can you like... Stop?
@Richy ,Where is your honor!
@Richy , Someone's got a bad case of butthurt.
@Richy , I'm pretty sure I've heard that the creator said it was Gif....
@britters, no the creator said it is pronounced "jif"
I'd die with honor.
@The Chosen Undead, surely you mean you will hollow with honor

Gif is pretty close to gift which is nice while jif just sounds like something you do when you're alone.
Just saying guys Green,Great, Good, Gas.. so what I'm saying is when the g is in front it makes the hard g sound. If I'm wrong please let me know.
@Pokemon Masturbator, thank you
@baconator27, Giovanni as well
@baconator27, see the argument above
V for vendetta
I just spell it out.. G I F
@LiquidDeception, *Builds another fortress with mini guns to shoot firsts*
@LiquidDeception, The Special Zubat used Supersonic! LiquidDeception is now confused! It killed itself in its confusion!
Why not both?
I still say gif with a g
I pronounce it like gift, but without the 'T'
Saying it with a hard G just sounds wrong to me.
I just spell out the acronym
Let's just say the way you pronounce it is directly related to where you live. Problem solved.
