Basically means you are laughing at something that is funny but either wrong, innapropiate, something you shouldn't be laughing at, or something that's just plain weird that's funny.
To summarize it, a confused lol.
"OMG lolz I ate my pants yesterday they were sooo good you should try them."

In a monologue on the internet, this word can also be used as a substitute for punctuation marks. Not very common, but it can happen.

A qualifier used to diffuse tension at the end of a particularly serious statement. The user of this qualifier usually anticipates a negative reaction (the nature of which is either anger or awkwardness) from the listener, and thus hopes that adding the word "lol" will convey a tone of facetiousness, which is often not discernible in netspeak.
Johnson: Hey Timothy, last night I shat in your mother's vagina and farted in her mouth, after which I proceeded to masturbate on her face and urinate all over her body lol.
Timothy: Haha, oh Johnson, you never fail to amuse me.
Johnson: I wasn't kidding, lol.
