Let me LOL

When I started blogging, very often on some comments I read "lol" after a sentence. As always when I don't understand a thing I google ! (which btw is a new verb too) and now I know ! LOL is an acronym for "laughing out loud" or "laugh out loud", and is a common element of Internet slang. But then sometimes I read "LMAO", and had to google again ! When I learned that it meant "laughing my ass off" I decided to rather use "LMPO", which would mean that I laugh my posterior off. I don't have an ass, I am a lady !

LOL was first documented in the Oxford English Dictionary in March 2011. WOW !

  5. Too funny. I like LMPO. The first time I encountered LOL was when my daughter sent me IMs when she was in college. It took me a long time to figure out what it was. My guesses were all wrong. Finally I asked her.

  14. wow, that's in the Oxford already? they must have major researchers, what with our language changed almost daily, I think!
    I like your lol better than the a- - one. I taught school for 33 years; I prefer to not spread trash talk.

  19. LOL indeed. You could say LMDO, d=derriere! Then there are those who add an F in there, and I always choose to think that means funny, or fat, though I am sure that is not the intent...LOL!

  20. I, too, like the idea of LMPO although when you say it, it sort of sounds like "limpo" LOL Thanks for the work you do keeping this wonderful meme running so successfully!
