The debate has raged for years. Is it ‘Gif’ or ‘Jif’? The short little animated posts you see all the time usually come from web content hub Giphy has collaborated with peanut butter people Jif to play on this play between words. So which one do YOU think best represent the thing on your internet feeds that shows off a reaction or emotion you would rather embed from a code than type out yourself?

YouTube channel React covered the debate with teams. Yes, we have teams of people arguing over this.
As this silly debate video from Comedy Central notes, the creator of GIF says it should be pronounced as ‘GIF’ but still many want to say ‘JIF’. It has some testy language be aware.
