A LOL Confession

Yes, we know that "lol" usually means something is supposed to be funny, and we assume that you are not, in fact, laughing out loud. Nothing new. Still, I found the concept chosen for illustrating this Twaggie to be nonsensically humorous. Link

Many moons ago, when I first started going online - on usenet - I ran across 'LOL' for the first time and didn't know what it meant. I did a search and found out it was short for 'laughing out loud', and I immediately felt like it was a great compliment. "Wow", I thought, "I didn't know my comment was funny enough to make someone laugh at it!" Of course, I know better now, but I still remember my earlier days of feeling a surge of pride every time I saw 'lol' typed after a comment.
