Misinterpretation held by many people's moms - "lots of love" instead of "laughing out loud." Best to use it in a situation where "lots of love" would be very empathetic and appropriate, and "laughing out loud" would be incorrect, disrespectful, and downright horrific.
I heard your brother passed away. LOL

I'm so sorry that you were in a tragic boating accident and are now paralyzed from the neck down. Call me if you need anything LOL

The term used that is slightly nicer than saying, "Now that just wasn't funny." Not to be confused with 'lol' alone, without a period.

"What kind of key opens a banana?"
"I don't know, what?"

(n.) A drowning man. On some of the more literacy-conscious chatrooms, whenever anyone (usually a n00b) says lol, they are invariably greeted with cries of "Oh no! He's drowning!" or something of the like. The lol is a drowning man, his head (the 'o') and upraised arms (the two 'l's) visible above the water line. There have been numerous attempted positive spins on this meme, like the Headshot of Someone at a Party Theory, or the He's Not Drowning- He's Just Cheering Theory, etc., but none of them have really taken hold like the Drowning Man Theory. There are also numerous text variations, supporting various theories. Ex: *lol* is a variation on the Cheering Theory, where the cheerer has somehow obtained a pair of pom-poms, and ~~~lol~~~^~~~ is a yet more ominous version of Drowning Man, for, as you can see, there is clearly a shark slicing through the stormy waves towards the hapless lol. Prevent this slaughter of innocent swimmers. Don't lol.
In a chatroom:

n00b: haha lol

Regular: Oh noes! A drowning man!

In real life (ish):

Bob: Well, this is a pleasant day to walk along the beach *sees man drowning* Oh no! A lol!

a rubbish slang term used by folk who really don't care. commonly seen on the internet or in text messages. shortening of the phrase "laugh out loud" which no-one on the planet has ever actually said, which begs the question, "why?"
Person 1 "I'm dying"

Person 3 "lol kk"

This is an lol (Laughing out Loud), however it happens when you try to add an exclamation mark at the end of the lol, but your finger hits the shift button a little too early! We call this an lol Tracy-Style.

Slang for "laugh out loud" or alternatively "lack of lire"

When someone has failed in a business venture in Italy- or equally any foreign country- due to their misjudgment of the ease with which they can extract money from the indigenous population, consequently leaving them destitute and stranded in foreign parts resulting in their bitterness and trying to shift the blame for their failings on the "stupidity" of the locals. Hilarious!
1. Whats up with that miserable bastard?

2. lol

1.Oh right I heard he fucked up big time in his Italian business venture and he is blaming the Italians for him blowing his finances on a hair brained scheme and ending up bankrupt, the wanker.
