batou: confused

Friday's Unscientific Poll: Jiff or Giff, and why?

I realise this question is, like, so 2008, but I'm still curious.

Poll #2057957 How to pronounce .gif

When speaking aloud, which pronunciation do you use when referring to a file with the .gif extension?

A 'jiff'
0(0.0%)
A 'giff'
19(100.0%)

I think I use this pronunciation primarily because of

my geographical location
1(3.6%)
the way I first heard it pronounced
9(32.1%)
the way I thought it should sound in my head
12(42.9%)
something else which I shall describe in comments
6(21.4%)
