That’s Funny, Right?(not really) By G.Othello

There is an art that requires great skill. It is the art of the fake laugh. I believe everyone should perfect this. The fake laugh will save someone who isn’t funny some saltiness. And if you are good at the fake laugh they will never know.

Far too often people will tell a joke and at first it’s funny. It’s usually the follow up joke that isn’t. That’s what we call stretching a joke. It’s as if since they made you laugh they could just keep going with this joke and make you laugh more, but that isn’t always the case. Some people don’t know when to quit while they are ahead and made the whole joke stupid and unfunny. So then you’re sitting there having to fake laugh so they don’t feel bad.

Laughing Out Loud

(not really)

By Othello

LOL is an acronym for “laughing out loud” or “laugh out loud”. This acronym has been around for many years. I remember this being around since the 2000s when I was in AOL chat rooms using “ASL” which is also an acronym. What is AOL? What is ASL? What is a chat room? I will answer those questions in another writing. Right now I have a few questions about the acronym “LOL”. How many of us who type “LOL” are really laughing out loud? When do you use “LOL”? What does “LOL” REALLY mean to you?
