Rofl lmao



As can be seen, rofl usage is near an all time low while the other internet-based lol synonym remains steady, keeping its head above pre-2009 levels. Of course this is based on google searches and not actual usage frequencies, but I imagine there is a very strong correlation. I didn't include lol because it squashes rofl and lmao down into straight line bottom feeders.

Discuss.

Rofl isn't internet slang ? Do you know what these words mean exactly ? And what's their origin ?

O-m-g fishos you're a genius. Even if it wasn't you who screenshoted this (or if it was, double-kudos!), this is precisely the right place and time to post it.

Apparently exists also in German (same meaning) and in Maya where it means flower/rose.
