SyFy Idents

Or, as I like to say, "Siff-eee"

Sorry folks, I still fundamentally don’t understand the reasoning behind the change from “SciFi” to "SyFy"—they lost a single letter, gained some symmetry, but entered mispronunciation hell.

Seriously, look at that word: SyFy. What do you hear? In my head I can only pronounce it as “Siff-eee”, like syphilis. So, hey, if that’s what they were going for, great. Otherwise, I feel like this falls under the category of changing shit because you’re bored, not because it really needs to be changed. Heck, if they’re trying to get away from the Science part of “SciFi”, they would’ve been better off just dropping the “C”: SiFi. That would’ve worked for me.

Also, is that Disney’s magic kingdom popping out that RV?
