Gibe/jibe/jive: "[Jibe] is often confused  DEC 23 2001

Gibe/jibe/jive: "[Jibe] is often confused with "jive," which derives from slang which originally meant to treat in a jazzy manner." However, a quick look on Google reveals that "doesn't jive" is actually more commonly used than "doesn't jibe" (for whatever that's worth).
