Alright, we need to settle this right here, right now. Whenever this topic gets brought up, the internet becomes an all-out battlegrounds and nothing productive is said. Now, I want real discussion.

Is it pronounced gif or gif? I’ve always said gif, but apparently other people pronounce it gif and it’s making me have second thoughts on whether I’m pronouncing gif correctly or if their gif pronunciation is right.

Converse.

There is no debate: It's pronounced JIF not GIF! Steve said so!

It's "gif" when talking about the file format, "jif" when talking about short, usually-mute videos shared on inane internet sites. (To be clear, they are both spelled "gif" but pronounced differently, I'm spelling them wrong here to make the pronunciation obvious).

Therefore some gifs are also jifs, but some gifs are not jifs (eg. the entirety of Citizen Kane as a 200mb .gif file is not a jif), and many modern jifs are not gifs (a lot of them are .mp4s or .webms now).

It's pronounced Skippy. Or, if you like a Detroit classic, Velvet.

You are mistaken, JPEG is pronounced Skippy. But I would like me a Detroit classic, thank you very much.

When the joke thread slowly becomes the reality thread, so you gotta throw more jokes in to balance it out.

But I think it’s pronounced…whatever individually makes all y’all happy.
