Gif is an acronym, for graphics interchange format. So hard G for me. Despite what the creator of the format says.

The "g" in "gif" is pronounced as in "gum."

I pronounce it to rhyme with "ream," but I don't have a strong opinion either way.

Well, there you go. He's only slightly less of a douchebag than Colbert, but they're both douchebags, so I don't watch either of them.

Lol fantastic. Colbert is the only late show host that makes me laugh, although he does go a bit overboard with Trump-bashing sometimes. All of his other segments are great though.

Only contrarians pronounce .gif with a soft g. :D

Because pronouncing it "gif" rather than "jif" is going to cause offense to anyone? (Except for people who toiled long hours at the Skippy peanut butter plant.)

Fine, then .jpg is pronounced "hay-peg".

You read the post where I said "It's kind of a running joke on Jimmy Fallon", and then you decided anyway to tell me you've never heard it pronounced that way.  ???

I don't care much for Fallon either, though for reasons that are probably diametrically opposed to Belkins'.

Doesn't take a rocket scientist to see why he doesn't like Stewart or Colbert.
