This form of, LOL, is yet another way to emphasize how funny something really is. The *ICON* makes it sound like a convention. This brings way to the fact that there is a convention of loling to whatever it is you are finding humorous, therefore making it very humorous and very worthy of a lol.
No links to Lolicon. You can make one if you want though.
