WTFFFF?

I’ve noticed that people have started writing “actual LOL” in emails and on message boards, to signify that they are not just using the term figuratively, but that something really caused them to laugh. Of course, it’s only a matter of time before this phrase is also acronyminized and becomes ubiquitous, forcing people to take their calcifications to the whole next level.

Man, I feel sorry for the IM’ers of the future, who will have no choice but to type “Actual AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALOL!” and “O RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY RLY??!” They will look back on the era of three-letter acronyms with the kind of heartwarming nostalgia we feel when we reminisce about the Atari 2600 and polio.
