    I had some witty reply all planned out, then watched the washing machine video and genuinely "laughed out loud" at least three times and lost my thought.....
    Yep, it was an ol' fart moment!

    A work colleague of mine once had a text from her Mother along the lines of 'Call me straight away, your Grandmother has died - LOL'.
    As you can imagine she was very confused.
    Turns out her Mother thought it meant 'Lots Of Love'.
    It made us all LOL, I can tell you.
    HIGH FIVE...:cool:

    I laugh a lot throughout the day. LOL is the quickest and easiest way to relay the fact that something made me laugh. Who's got time to type "that made me laugh" and if you don't laugh much at anything life would suck more than just having to deal with the minor annoyance at having to see LOL typed online.

    We already had a word for that.
    Try "ha" on for size.

    It's one less, innit?


    Grown-ups have no excuse to LOL

    But I laugh, i've never said Ha.
    If I did it would be more like HaHaHa and that could be taken the wrong way.

    To laugh is to ha, he, or ho, all of which were universally recognized as the written "ha" for eons before the moronic "LOL" appeared on the scene.

    I say el-oh-el tongue-in-cheek to 'laugh' at something I think is inappropriate to laugh at. I'm sure people think it's weird, but conforming to everything gets old. I also like to spell it out when I type as I did above. I also sometimes go with lulz or lawlz. Again, often tongue-in-cheek. I never go with LOL. It gets on my nerves mainly because people type it after stuff that isn't remotely funny <insert LOL here>

    I've spent much of my life being the biggest smart ass in the room. That was pre-TDPRI. Now I'd be happy with like a Certificate of Participation, y'know? "LOL"
