Ok, have you ever read a funny little blog, a text a friend sent you that just got you giggling, or come across something pretty dern hilarious that deserves a little more than just an old LOL? I mean, come on, LOL is getting over-used just a little much, plus yeah, sometimes I read something that makes me say, “HA!” and then I’m done and don’t think about it anymore. Very rarely does something make me ROFL (roll on the floor laughing for those of you not quite up with internet slang).
But sometimes something makes me “Ha” and then keep on “Ha-ing” until I’ve got a pretty good out loud laugh going on, but yet still not quite rolling on the floor. Are ya with me?
Oh I know, there’s one out there I could use. LM%*#O. But I’m a good Christian girl and I just don’t have any sense using that word, even in internet slang. It’s just a potty word and that’s all there is to it.
But, back to my first dilemma. There’s some dern good funnies out there that deserve more than a LOL and I want to have something to give them.
So I’m going with LMPO (laughing my patootie off).
Now “patootie” is an acceptable term in the Many Meadows’ and extended households for the backside area that we sit on and do other “business” with. Therefore, I deem this word appropriately worthy of stepping up LOL a notch for the really funny blogs, texts, etc., without having to use potty language to get my point across.
And don’t worry I googled it and it is not used in any current internet slang for anything else, inappropriate or not.
And I leave you with the end result of one of my quandaries for the week and wish you many LMPO in the future.
How do you express your on-line feelings of humor?
