Roflcopter (1)

noun Blending , Clipping, Reverse Acronym
An alternative to rofl. It also may refer to an acronym, Rolling On the Floor Laughing Can’t Operate Properly Till Eyes Refocus
 
Roflcopter originally comes from a forum in a famous Blizzard game, Warcraft III. When someone invented this buzzword adopted from a game unit, gyrocopter, it spread fast in the game community, and eventually became an alternative for rofl. This is another commonly used chatting word that takes the place of rolling on the floor laughing. It can refer to an alternative of rofl or an elongation of the acronym which has been created reversely to suit roflcopter.
Etymology : It combines "ROFL" and the clipped word "-copter" from "Gyrocopter", a unit in the game Warcraft 3, (Or, nowadays could refer to helicopter) to form Roflcopter. An acronym, after such blending, has formed to suit all 9 alphabets.
