Finally, the one true purpose of Wikipedia has been revealed: It’s a GIF repository.
A new Web application from developer Joël Franusic called WikiGIFs searches through the site’s massive archive for animations featured in its articles. Given that the GIF is actually older than online encyclopedia, it’s no surprise that there are literally thousands to choose from.
The site is hours of fun, a timesuck of silly animations that will surely brighten your day.
The following are some of our favorite GIFs we’ve seen so far.
