256. Advantage -Online chatting

Remember those days? Those chat days!!! Internet-Chatting is indeed fun. I still remember those days. Days I used to chat hours together.Those were great ol' fun days.
I remember the chat-abbrevations used as a part of the conversation. ASL,LOL,ROTFL,ASL. These four abbrevations are gonna be the topic for this post.
It was very easy to use this abbrevation while chatting-on-line. It is not the same case when we try doing it face-to-face.

Have you ever tried asing the age/sex and location of a complete stranger on the road? If you have tried doing so, please comment about the repercussions on such occassions.
I was an over extensive user of this particular abbrevation. I pre/post-fix LOL to every sentence that I type when I chat online.

But on the contrary, Can we do it in real life situation. Imagine that we are travelling in a train. Suddenly we burst out laughing. What would be our situation after that?
This is a hyper version of the previous type. Roll-On-The-Floor-Laughing. I just tried a little demo of the same in the drawing room. My mom and Dad are giving me a very dirty look now.

I could atleast digest and understand the previous three words, but this one is a ripper. How could I Laugh-My-Ass-Out? Is it literally possible? Don't they simply call it farting?

Readers can also share some other Chat -abbrevations that are funny and creepy when actually practised.


  1. Hey your post reminded me of the few years back when i was this crazy kid trying to get a bite(byte??) of the internet. My first message on the chat room would be 'asl' . I was so embarassed to even talk about it, now its funny.

  41. I remember the first time I went to chat room!! I didn't knew what ASL meant and when asked to elaborate the meaning of ASL to the person who asked me - the very next second all the ppl in the chat room vanished! Thus my chat room adventures came to an end!!

  42. reminded the fun parents are lookin for a groom for moi..and i always wonder if the 1st time i interact with him..i say "ASL" :P:P

    hilarious situation even to imagine!

  43. @thoorika
    i am pretty sure that you are reserving the adventures for a later post

  44. @illusion
    yes.. better dont repeat the same thingie again.. all the very best for the hunting season.. may god bless you with an amazing guy

  45. hehehehe my god! guess what i met my bf online... thru chat :P

    well i keep replying to ur comment and u never seem to reciprocate...why??!!:(

  46. @phoenix
    hey thats good. online guy.. wow..

    did i miss replying to some comment? bad me! ill check the previous posts...

  47. Haha...It indeed would be funny to ask ASL...Picture this: Me approaching a gal and asking her, "Your ASL pls?"...first of all, asking a gal's age is kinda taboo...more over asking about sex?? well, I guess its easier to ask for IT, than about IT!! ;)
    First time for this nut on your blog sir...loved it!! :)

  48. Thank you for the full forms! Knew the first three, didn't know LMAO! Now that I do, I can use it!! ;D

  49. I always wondered what LMAO was, thanks for sharing the knowledge!

    ROFL @ no. 4

  50. mr.chris...

    I like ur sense of ur humour very much, even though im a jovial person by nature, i have to agree when it comes to writing i find myself wanting! any tips bro?

  51. NOM: No offence meant..
    I write this after each comment i post in a discussion forum so that the so called heads of discussion forum wont ban me..

  52. I hate when they come to you and say ASL! I mean Does it really matter? LOL

    I loved this post!

  53. That reminds me...i use lol while talking too...just that i dont laugh...just say lol ;)

  54. These ones are not realated to chatting, may sound little cult though, but since I use to participate in a lot of forums(linux related especially), I personally like RTFM (Read the Fucking Manuals) which they use when some body asks for basic syntax.. and yeah another ROFF (Rolling on the Floor Fucking).. lolz.. which is used as plural laughin out loud.. lolz.. that is you laughed out loud multiple times.. lol. =))

  55. I cannot forget what my college junior once said on Yahoo chat -- he said he'll send his resume "ASS UP" took a while for me to figure out that he actually meant "ASAP", which in turn meant "As Soon As Possible" *grin*

    funny blog dude!
