so the guys who invented gifs say they pronounce it with a soft "g" but per the White House it's a hard g:

personally I think Obama's a big #$!&@ dork but I agree here, because gifs are too great to be associated with some #$!&@ peanut butter.

lately I'm really into broken gifs. liked this one a lot

no offense to the inventor but how the #$!&@ do you get to "jif" from an abbreviation of "graphics interchange format" unless you're deaf?
Yes, but in a double utley you can put your utley on top they other guy's utley, and you're the winner. (Swish)

I have no idea what you're talking about, Housh. Is this some sort of hipster code?
Which part? And who are you?

Golly - the NYTimes has an opinion about gif aesthetics (but no sign of a position on hard or soft g)

the post leans pretty heavily on this essay: Are Animated Gifs a Type of Cinema?
Yes, but in a double utley you can put your utley on top they other guy's utley, and you're the winner. (Swish)

Almost 20 years with JPGs, PNGs and GIFs and I've never once called it a "jiff"
