Everyone has a favorite pop culture moment, and the internet gives us an opportunity to share them with each other. The experience is only heightened by the invention of gifs. Shorthand for Graphics Interchange Format, the memeable animated content ranges from clips from Nene Leakes's famed reads on The Real Housewives of Atlanta to Rami Malek's relatable awkwardness. They're essential tools of internet culture that help us communicate and connect with each other no matter how we're using the internet.
Whether you pronounce the word with a hard or soft "g" sound (there is a right way), gifs are a pop culture staple. Here are the best gifs of 2019, according to The School of Gifs, aka Giphy — you might want to add these to your personal folder.
