I have a little request.

While not being a native English language speaker, I do sometimes encounter certain abbreviations that I am not familiar with. Some of these "puzzles" I do solve but some are still a mistery for me.

This is my latest one: ROTFLOL

Could you please help me with it and maybe give me some of the others most commonly used ones. Is there a website that have some sort of abbreviation dictionary?

Thank you.

ROTFLOL means Rolling On The Floor Laughing Out Loud.

Don't worry Simon, I don't know all of those little abbreviations either. I refuse to use most of them. I don't "LOL," I "hahahaha." Or when I'm being evil, I "moohahahahahaha."

And I have never rolled around on the floor while laughing my arse off, at least online.

I'm glad you asked. Now I know what this mystical "LOL" means as well.

When I see LOL written, I can't help thinking of the character 'Lol' from the British comedy 'As Time Goes By'. I was sort of on the right track.

Perhaps we could be subversive and invent thousands of silly acronyms that nobody understands (oops, too late). My contribution is VAS (Very Annoying Smirk)

Not to be a plugger but...

Please see my "Strictly Classified" quiz...

It's an acronym quiz from newspapers.
