Because apparently moms aren't too choosy anymore and Jif needs to drum up some cheap advertising, Jif has teamed up with searchable gif database Giphy to announce their very firm belief that gif is pronounced with a hard G like gift without the T, and not like their peanut butter brand. Some more info on this breaking news while I conduct a crunchy versus smooth workplace poll:. The debate has raged since when GIFs, known now for their fun looping videos, first surfaced. However, the format's creator, Steve Wilhite, told the New York Times in that, despite popular opinion, it should strictly be pronounced like the peanut butter brand and not like "gift" without the T. First of all, if the gif's creator says it's pronounced jif, then it's pronounced jif. That's one of the perks of inventing something -- you get to name it. That said, Steve was wrong and should have insisted it was pronounced with a hard G like a normal person. I mean it stands for graphic interchange format -- where the hell do you get the j sound? But, as I said before, if you invent it you get to name it, and we should respect Steve for all the LOLs the format has brought us, and Jif has no right trying to argue.
When is it OK to call a Gif a “Jif”? Never.
