"Actually For Real Laughing"

I mean it's pretty self-explanatory, use this word when something online or text related actually makes you laugh. You can use this in place of acronyms like "ROFL" "LMAO/LMFAO" "LOL" etc. If you find yourself saying "LOL" too much then "AFRL" is for you.
Soulja Boy: "I'm from the streets. When I see you Chris imma beat yo ass."
The rest of the internet: "AFRL"
