Do you lol? Laugh out loud?

Some people laugh out loud all the time and become quite renowned for doing so. Others smile or occasionally chuckle but rarely laugh out loud.

Do you laugh at jokes or just say that as very funny?

Wonder when the meaning of lol changed from 'Lots of love' to 'Laughs out loud'...

I think it always meant ‘laughs out loud’ to the internet users but ‘lots of love’ to those more used to writing letters but I could be wrong.
I never laugh out loud. Even when I’m crying with laughter with tears running down my face I still do so quietly.
Both my kids are the opposite and are always laughing noisily. Last night they were laughing so noisily I could hardly hear the tv even with a door closed between us.
It’s good to hear as very few things are more heart warming than laughter.

Never laugh, sometimes just a 'smile' inside.

Used to think it meant LOVE ON LINE years ago

I have a friernd with a very loud and contagious laugh. When he laughs in public everyone around him smiles or laughs at his laugh.

I thought lol was lots of love but I have enough up to date friends to put me right. I small group of us go put for a coffee morning once a week. Four of us are quiet laughers and one is a loud laugher. She does get noticed a lot.

Since this thread I’ve been taking notice of people around me laughing. Most people I know don’t laugh out loud but the few who do are female.

"Most people I know don’t laugh out loud but the few who do are female."

Well observed!

I tend to laugh loudly, I think it's funnier to laugh loudly. My brother used to get sent out of classes at school because of his uncontrollable loud laughing. This trait earned him the nick name woody wood pecker, he gets called woody or pecker still to this day.

I laugh out loud at the wrong times, like when someone walks into a lamppost or glass door, can’t help it.

It's a bit awkward for the lead singer of 10cc...

If he did something like scraping his neighbours car when he is coming out of his drive, or runs over their pet tortoise or something.

He would leave a message for his neighbour saying 'Just scraped your car..Lol'

or 'I've just run over your tortoise...Lol'

I do all sorts of things...I'm not sure what the initials would be for mine...although I can't remember ROFL'ing

It's a bit of an inconvenience when you're texting a message of condolence to someone and your name is actually Lol.

"Sorry for your loss. Lol".

Sounds like LOLs got the Creme.
