ALA is an acronym for "Actually Laughing Audibly." Many
believe it carries the same
meaning as "lol." Had ALA been used
pre-2003, this would have been true. However, due to the commonplace
over-usage of "lol" (use when
there is no laughter out-loud), the need for an acronym referring to audible laughter has arisen. Hence, ALA. Use of ALA when
one is not, in fact, actually laughing audibly, will result in a german shepherd attack.

A: Well man, just keep jammin' her until
it falls off.
B (who is laughing his freakin' balls off): ALA!!!
