Let’s go back to when I remember “LOL” starting to be a “thing”. Chat rooms were popular for us and “LOL” was the way we showed that something that was said was humorous and made us laugh. OK, so let’s fast forward to when the acronyms “LMAO” (Laughing My Ass Off) and “LMFAO” (Laughing My F***ING Ass Off) were birthed.
Before I continue, let me give an honorable mention to “ROTFL” (Rolling on the floor laughing) which made it to the internet, but later became unpopular. [Insert praying hands here].
“LMAO” was used for when you were cracking up, like busting your gut laughing out loud, but when you type “LMFAO” you were really busting your gut laughing to the point you couldn’t breathe.
