roffle

abbreviation Sound Symbolism, Acronym
more phonetic representation of "rofl" which stands for "rolling on the floor laughing". All of these phrases have the same meaning, which is that whatever was just said was very funny. The first change was making the acronym "rofl", which is often used on the Internet and in text messages because it is faster to type. "Roffle" means the same thing, but is spelled like "rofl" is pronounced. This was probably done originally as a joke, or perhaps someone just heard "rofl" and thought that this was how it should be spelled. This process is very similar to the "laugh out loud" to "lol" to "lawl" process of change.
