O RLY is simply a shorthand version of "Oh Really" It is often used on the internet to express either doubt or disinterest in something. O RLY is usually followed by YA RLY which is sometimes followed by NO Wai.

O RLY is commonly accompanied by a picture of an owl. The snowy white old was the original I RLY owl, and it started at a message board called 4chan. It's unknown as to why an owl was chosen to represent O RLY. It's probably because an owl's wise, inquisitive eyes are the perfect way to express the dubiety of a situation. The owl KNOWS.

Sometimes it is accompanied with boobies (the bird silly)
