Oh Dear Lord. An expression of angst. It has been known to be muttered by exasperated law professors who have had frustrating interactions with technology (see: e-mail.) This phrase can be utilized in a number of different contexts and by people of all different religions.
Sam: "I woke up to a giant raccoon going through my trash last night,"
Jimmy: "ODL."

"I have no idea where my pants are. ODL."

"ODL...I can't understand the battle of the forms. I think I will get drunk..."

Someone: "Let's go to Rick's!"
Most people: "ODL"
Most people after drinking: "Yes!"
Most people the next morning: "ODL"
