The inventor says it was intended to be call "Jif" - like the peanut butter. Though I've been laughed at for pronouncing it that way. So now I just say Graphics Interchange Format and laugh at them ;)

I've only been online since Nov,13, 2014 - total ludite.
Some computer programmer I knew kept snickering when I pronounced,"memes," as "meems," saying that "mehmehs" was correct.
"Mehmehs" finally became ingrained until someone told me earlier this year that it was "Meems"

What a jerk.

Sounds familiar. My brother always said Me-Mes. I always said it like Beams= "Memes". I've finally won the battle. Really the spelling of the stuff is off, but that's the tech world for you. :)

I was showing my sister the funny memes and threads on this site when she noticed I was mispronouncing it. She even Googled it to make sure she had it right.

I haven't spoken in awhile to the one who intentionally steered me wrong, so I can't find out why. It was over an extended amount of time she did this, not like just pulling my leg for a day.

Oh, well, haha

He said it was because "graphics" has a hard G sound. I still pronounce it jiff.

It really doesn't matter to me. I call it "gift" without the "t." Sounds better to me.

If you pronounce it "Jif" Then you are actually talking about a totally different graphic file.
