ROFL is an internet accronmym for Rolling On Floor Laughing, and like all things internet it has adapted to nerd culture and has taken on new real-life use, though usually in a satirical way.
ROFL can be merged with other accronyms to created super l33t
acronyms that "r0x0r y0ur b0x0rs" per se. Some examples of the merged accronyms are as follows:
ROFLAARP: Rolling On Floor Looking At Assorted Rodent Pornography

<admin> rofl. Are you ROFLEW?

Laughing My Ass Off. Used online only.
Matt: Bill fell off the horse and injured his pelvis in 6 different places.
That joke was Lollerskates!
Invented by a Blizzard moderator on the Warcraft III forum. There is always much whining going on on those official forums, much sucking up to moderators and an awful lot of 'BLUE!!! PLZ REPLY!!!1one' (Blue = color of moderator posts), so when a mod posts something, you can bet there'll be thousands of people jumping on it, if only to spam 'BLUE FIX GARGZ PLZZZZ' or 'first reply woooot!' after it in the vain hope that the mod will read it and react.
So when one invented this new buzzword, it was grabbed and squeezed out and spread like a virus across all of the Blizzard forums and from there over the internet.
The word is derived from a unit in Warcraft III, the gyrocopter (flying machine). Your immediate response when someone masses gyros (to be funny, ruin the game, mess around or whatever) is to rofl for ten straight minutes until the copters of doom and destruction have pinpricked 1 of your 20 farms to death with their uber godly bombs.
Now mostly used in Blizzard circles as a leeter version of rofl.
'...and this guy said I could reduce lag by up to 100% by hitting alt-F4. I did and the game closed on me. This is griefing, admins plz ban'
1. Message board acroynym for Click/Laugh. Used in place of lol to describe actual immediate humor upon clicking one's mouse and seeing a particularly post.

1. The "internet", or "online" term for penis.
2. The 1337 term for penis.
Dude, that girl loves the p33n.
This word originated from the abreviation :
ROFL = Roll On Floor Laughing.
Which is a term widely used in internet chatrooms and instant messaging software.
Roffle evolved due to people readling ROFL like a normal word rather than spelling out each letter as R. O. F. L.
Roffle is therefore the casual friendly way to say ROFL and can be used as a verb in its own right:
Fluffy: I roffled for about ten minutes!
