AN UPDATE ON BREAKINGGIFS.COM
Hey everybody! Some notes for you:
#1 - More GIFs are coming. If you have any ideas for some .gifs - you can tweet at me @breakinggifs! Keep spreading them. Let’s get the word out. I won’t be happy till @Oprah tweets @Diddy about “Walt’s thinking about Pizza” GIF.
#2 - Let’s end the GIF pronunciation debate once and for all. At one point in my life, I also believed that it was pronounced with a hard-g, like “gift” or “Garry Shandling.” Then I started to research the history of the .gif and found that the inventors of CompuServe, who are credited with also inventing the .gif in 1987, have made it clear that their creation is correctly pronounced “JIF,” as is “jiffy” or “Jerome Bettis.” - So if you have any issues take it up with the CompuServe guys you can send them an email from your AOL or Prodigy account. Don’t shoot the messenger. Unless it’s Gale, then shoot him when he opens the door! Right? Amirite? Right.
#3 - I’m still in New Mexico with my Winnebago and I can tell you 2 things. They totally suck ass as far as fuel consumption and mine smells vaguely like grandpas.
