Via Reddit. Won Week 48 of THIS WEEK IN GIFs with 469 votes.

We're GIF hard-liners around these parts. No doctored GIFs, no reverse-animation, no nothin'. Just pure, unfiltered chronicle. There is something of a loophole, though: if the first and final frames of a GIF look similar enough, it creates the illusion that a GIF never ends.

This is such a GIF. This GIF is 30 years long. Come back to this page in the year 2038. The skater will be gone, and the Red Wings will be sitting there, all by their lonesome, just waiting for you.

(14) SNIPED METS FAN.

Via @ckirsch714's Vine. Special nomination. Has not previously appeared in THIS WEEK IN GIFs.

This wouldn't be half as good if Sonny didn't just sort of leave his ass draped over the seat like he's a twentysomething's hoodie. When I was in Vox's New York offices last week, I had the pleasure of carrying around my laptop and showing this GIF to everyone, and everyone laughed as hard as I did. We used to tell jokes, y'all, and then GIFs came along.
