    LOR Local Rabbi

    LOL. Laugh out loud

    OP. Original poster (?)

    PBA. Popa bar abba (username)

    C A. CoffeeAddict (username)

    D Y. DaasYochid (username)

    R B. RealBrisker (username)

    please correct if wrong!

    I’m sure there are more so everyone please help build the list, and if you don’t know what one means I’m sure the more imaginative members do.

    always runs with scissors fast asked:

    “is IMHO regular internet slang on any blog or just the CR? “

    It’s general internet slang.

    BTW, there are web sites dedicated to internet/texting abbreviations and slang.

    Hi arwsf.

    From what I know DH stands for designated hitter and is used in baseball where a player goes up to bat for a pitcher, who I guess has to rest instead of batting and running bases. It may have another meaning, I dont know.

    Do you ALWAYS run fast with scissors? What are you cutting? lol

    #1063760

    running fast with scissors is the best way to beat your morning and start the day. With scissors you can cut up anything, you can make ribbons on gifts have that swirl affect, and you can look intimidating during it all.

    Abbreviations must be viewed in the context or surroundings of where it is used. So for example in the coffee room DME would stand for Dolt and Mildly Eccentric

    This is how you do bold

    <str ong> insert text here </str ong>

    This is how you do italics

    <e m> insert text here </e m>

    Just remember to remove the blank space in between the words “strong” and “em”
