IRL
I Really Laughed

While the term IRL generally means "in real life" in recent years, when combined with LOL the term has grown traction as an abbreviation or shorthand text-speak for "I really laughed". As the phrase 'LOL' -- a term once used to denote actual laughter -- has become overused and utilized in instances where no actual laughter has occurred, IRL is now being used to denote real laughter so as to let the other person know they actually found it funny.
John: ...so that's when I told her I was gay.

Jane: LOL, irl.
