Ass Appreciated

That is indeed some assWriting 1100 words on the purported "GIF renaissance"-"the present-day GIF love goes beyond aesthetics and nostalgia. Animated GIFs aren't just throwbacks-they're uniquely suited to some very contemporary modes of cultural consumption, and they perform distinct functions that other formats can't"-seems like an awful lot of work in order to justify showing this GIF of Christina Hendricks' ass, but I've got to give it to the folks at Slate on this one: it's a pretty amazing ass. I mean, I'd much rather this than a contrarian piece on why Christina Hendricks' astounding ass really isn't one of the world's most phenomenal asses. Which was probably their other option. Well played, gentlemen.

Don't just stare at it!

As a man used to the firmness of small ones, I have to say that this type is best enjoyed by just staring at it.

Who says you can't have it all.

I can't stand it when people pronounce it "JIF". Do we pronounce Graphics as "JERAFFIX"? No.

Christ, she's a sovereign Congressional District Planetary Object. I'm compelled to hi-five Tina Fey (<3) about it, too.

Even more to the point, Geoffrey the Giraffe disagrees with ArtYucko most emphatically.

Look. I'm a guy with (let's be honest) an over-powered desktop workstation. So why is it that having more than two animated gifs visible at once brings my browser to its knees?

Well, lets be fair here, is one of them a GIF of Christina Hendricks' ass? Because that might explain a lot.

a GIF is a powerful thing.

Far be it from me to take away from the mighty GIF Party or that amazing piece of assimation above — but are these really animated GIFS? These are video loops, not static images animated through slight alteration and compression. Am I wrong here? The 90s were kind of fuzzy for me.

Trying to figure out how to use the word "callipygous" in a sentence.
