Well, it was freezing IE9, doesn't seem to be happening with CoolNovo & Waterfox.
it should not be posible for it to freeze your browser, even on a page with 100mb+ full of gifs it should just load them all slowly, but not freeze your browser at all.
anyway if it really bothers you, you can use ABP (adblock plus) and right click my gif to block it out and you wont ever have to see it again.
No offense, but can you please do something about the chicken gif you've got as your signature, it keeps freezing my browser until I manage to pass your post.
Turns out the reason why it's over 30MB!
