Debate Over Proper Pronunciation of “GIF” Leaves Eighteen Coworkers In Hospital

Costa Mesa, CA – What started as playful office small-talk instead quickly grew violent when employees at local marketing agency Amobee debated how computer acronym “GIF” should be pronounced. Sources report that tensions boiled over when marketing manager John Tucker slammed an Epson printer over Curtis Murphy’s head after Murphy pointed out that Steve Wilhite, the inventor of the Gif file, declared “jiff” the official pronunciation. Tucker later told police that “just because he invented it doesn’t mean the a—hole gets to declare how the English language works.” Legal experts are skeptical that his defense will hold water in court.
