lol

verb; acronym
to find something so funny that you laugh out loud. This word began as a little known acronym used to quickly tell a friend online that he was being funny. It stands for “laughing out loud” as in “that joke made me laugh out loud.” This word has actually moved from merely an Internet term and is now used in everyday speak. It started out being used in jest, as in making fun of people who use such acronyms. However, it has become a fairly common word to use to denote something as funny, usually in a fairly ironic way.
