What Do The Letters "lol" Mean?

Thu Jun 21, 2001 3:10 am

Hi there. I have a very simple question...What does LOL mean? Quite often, people will sign off at the end of their post by using these 3 letters. For the life of me...I can't figure out what this expression means, and it's starting to drive my crazy!!!

Thanks,
Chris  Smile

Well everyone...once again, thanks for the awakening! I guess I'm a little behind the times. I have never talked on a "Live" chat line before. Not for any particular reason, I just never have.

I'll have to try it some day...and I know just the stuff I'd like to chat about!
