A acronym that
is extremely overused, and it stands for "laugh out loud".
1. It means, "I really
didn't laugh out loud at all, I really
typed this because I would
and judged if I didn't."
2. "I'm really
just afraid of what you think of me, so if I type 'lol' then I do not have
to worry about you taking
anything I say seriously."
3. "I just said something that
is potentially embarrassing, I should follow up with an 'lol' just in case."
4. "I am not eloquent enough to think of anything better to say than 'lol'."
