GIFs turn 30

 

On the 15th June 2017, the GIF (those animated things that keep Gifville’s lights turned on) celebrated 30 years since it was devised by Steve Wilhite, of the US early computing firm CompuServe. Since then they have gone from strength to strength.

To celebrate this special milestone, Gifville will be releasing special #30YearsofGIFs pieces featuring the first GIFs to go viral. Up above is one of a series of GIFs made by GIPHY Studios to mark 30 years of dancing bananas and stuff. This one features Internet sensation Logan Paul.

Happy 25th birthday Azzy

 

Today one of my younger brothers turns a quarter of a century. They call him ‘the Hitman’ but I call him an awesome brother. Load of best wishes for this special day, Azzy. Don’t worry, one day, you’ll have that army of meerkats.

‘I been drinking, I been dranking’

Seen having a massive bender with the Seven Dwarves, the fairytale world finally realises that the formerly innocent Snow White is not so squeaky clean any more.
