"I'm gay"


Fallen Rib

Let's hear it GBS: everyone knows lol is mostly a polite acknowledgement of someone's joke or intended humor, but what do you reserve for something that gets you busting up??

Personally I like to go for the easy, ALL Caps LOL or even LMAO.

Rofl is basically just a tiered up version of lol, in my professional opinion

Spill it

Haha = being polite
Hah = being poilte +1
Hahha = pretty funny
Hahhhahhahaa = genuinely laughing out loud and probably sharing what you said with someone else

If you want to join high society you can't type those gauche acyronyms. To be received well one should use the sardonic 'lel' or an ironic 'kek'.

I have to point out that this aol speak is technically banned here, however, the proper expression might be " Laughing My loving rear end Off" or "LMFAO".

i loved the '90s but hated my parents fighting



I write lol if I disagree or agree with something politically, and lmao if i disagree or agree with something a lot. I'll write it after stuff I say myself, as well, so people are sure to know that I agree with me.

This is an accurate representation of how I laugh in real life; not because something is funny, an alien concept to me, but to underline a point. Like, maybe I will say "the European union is really good, actually, hope this helps" and then just burst out laughing.
