It seems that observing april fools is controversial.

That's unfortunate. I was looking forward to some smiles this year. I understand why it is not a good idea to do coronavirus pranks or scare people. But there can be fun stuff too.  Like what we did here at CodeRanch.

If you find any you like online, post them here. I could definitely use some fun ones to look at.

Found a site that is aggregating.. I like that tweetdeck renamed of the "gif" button to "jif" to highlight the pronunciation controversy.

And some from Australlia

So "gif" the image format is pronounced "jif"? Does that mean that "jif" the peanut butter is pronounced "gif"?

And what about "git"? Of course I mean "git" the source control system, not "git" the annoying British person.

Both words are pronounced git.

Is this different between American and British English? I never refer to a person as a "git" but I would expect it be pronounced the same way as the repository

I have no idea how the repository's name is pronounced, I've never heard anybody say it.

But "git" in the insulting British sense is pronounced like "give".

Paul,
So it isn't pronounced the same.

The "git" repository name rimes with "bit" and "pit"

Yeah, yeah. But is it "git" like "give" or is it "git" like "gin"?
