I have always been sooo curious to know WHO MADE UP the following abbreviations that everyone seems to use.(I know the meanings.)
It must be fascinating for the person who created them to observe!
I don’t think they’re someone’s “creation. I think they just became!
I don’t know, but after the first few it just opened up the door to ROTFLMTOWTIME…
(with tears in my eyes)
Can we make up new ones,just to make life exciting?
LQTM-laughing quietly to myself
IWJW-I was just wondering
ATH-according to halacha
WADR-with all due respect
WDYJITL-why don’t you jump in the lake (just joking)
WADR and LQTM are well established abbreviations. I think you can take credit for the other 3.
“WADR-with all due respect” already long exists — exactly as that.
TMB became an official one around here 😉
WWMD=what would moshe do?
I seriously thought I made them ALL up!
K.O.-where else did you see LQTM?(just curious)
ROTF (and ROFL/ROTFL) has been around for a while, maybe even since the late 90’s. It became very popular more recently.
Kapusta – its been around since at least the early 80’s, and perhaps longer.
Al Gore made them all up.
eclipse: I don’t know if I had specifically seen it before. I just googled to see if anyone used it, and they had.
