Get your hands on a jar of Gif; OU’s club gymnastic team is preparing for its spring season

Today is Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

The age-old debate over how to pronounce the word “GIF” may have just gotten rekindled.

J.M. Smucker, the company that produces Jif peanut butter, is collaborating with Giphy to create a special line of labels for its jars. 

New jars of peanut butter will be labeled as “gif,” complete with a banner saying “Hard g Pronunciation” in honor of the short animation clips. When placed next to a normal jar of Jif peanut butter, the contrasting labels are designed to show the different pronunciations for the words.

The special Jif jars can be purchased from Amazon for a limited time.
