“GIF” was officially selected as word of the year by Oxford American Dictionary. That says something about our society, we’re obsessed with a simple animated clip of politicians and cats doing silly dances on loop. You can basically bet that any feat whether monumental or idiotic (especially the idiotic) will no forever be memorialized in GIF form. Aliens land – GIF. Robot revolution – GIF. Honey Boo Boo presidential campaign – GIF. You get the idea. These are the most viral GIFs that helped cement the GIF’s place in Internet history in 2012.
