Really, we should be celebrating this at least every year, but perhaps a couple of times each, it’s that good of a holiday. Of course, I’m talking about Beware of Strangers Baring Gifs Day, which we somehow missed last year, and I do apologize. Hence, a collection of various gifs (pronounced, “har-DJEE”) that I’ve collected during my exhausting, professional, online research efforts in support of this website. Some of them are actually short videos, since apparently this takes less memory, a curiosity all its own. But we can call them gifs if we want to.

Pay close attention. This is regret:
I don’t think this was how it was supposed to go:
This one may require several views to take it all in, but it’s great:
And finally, a combined gif – it may take a second to register. This never fails to make me grin stupidly:
Ah, hell, we need to see the two best from the previous holiday post again, because.
First sip of Coke:
And the best gif ever made, period:
But I close with a public service message, again, because people somehow keep forgetting this. Harder slaps may be in order:
Enjoy the day!
