Show Us Your GIFs!: What We Want to See

Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2012 at 5:30 PM

So, the GIF contest. As has been said before, we think that GIFs are awesome. I tend to lean toward hilarious GIFs from the world of sports, such as my personal favorite, a rollerblading mascot of the Toronto Raptors faceplanting on a basketball court:

The best part is his tail!
  • The best part is his tail!

Others in the office tend to prefer the understated beauty of Cinemagraphs, which capture moments in a video-like fashion, such a trip through Space Mountain, or an evening rainstorm in the city:

Peaceful. Beautiful. Not too cliched.

That's great too. We love these, and we'll take any sort of Tucson-based spin on 'em. Just refrain from posting this from the UA/Iowa game a few years back:

Its not because she's not cute, its because the GIF is old.
  • It's not because she's cute, it's because the GIF is old.

Personally, I'm hoping for someone who edits something spectacular into a GIF of Matt Scott vomiting on the field. Dehydration and/or concussion symptoms aren't funny, but a man spewing forth a rainbow of My Little Ponies? Screw friendship; THAT is magic. (On a related note, good luck this weekend, 'Cats!)
