A Brief Lesson on Internet Etiquette (LOL)

Good idea:

Lolling at someone else's funny.

Joe: Your mom went to college.

Jane: LOL!


Bad idea:

Lolling at your own funny.

Joe. Your mom went to college. LOL!


You may well be lolling at your own lame joke, but telling us so only makes you seem like a self-absorbed nitwit.

um, LOL!

If I don't LOL at myself, how will I know if I'm funny?

Mr. Fob said...

Edgy and Scot: ROTFLOL! (I'll let you think it's at you and not at my own cleverness.)

Sam: Oh, I don't expect you to stop doing it--just stop telling us you're doing it. But then I guess we wouldn't know if you're funny.

Samantha said...

Actually--I never do it anyway. I am LOL impaired. That is why I consider posts such as these a huge public service...

(Sam is suddenly filled with gratitude and must rush away to wipe tears...)
