Dad called me up for the Napoleon’s Idiot Series and asked me what ROFL (he pronounced it as roofel) meant? I couldn’t help but to LOL (Laugh Out Loud) because of how he said it.

Dad uses Facebook After talking to him I realized there are a lot of you out there that probably see these sorts of texting acronyms on Facebook all the time but never knew what they mean and probably never asked.

So…out of hundreds of acronyms, I put together a list of the most used texting and chat acronyms that you’re sure to see on Facebook and other Social Media sites.

I’ve also included a list I found online for Seniors chat acronyms that are hilarious! Be sure to check them out down below.

  1. Hi Audrey, ha ha ha… I’m ROFL at your Acronyms just for Seniors!! Especially BYOT! You’ll appreciate this funny (apparently true) story I heard on the radio the other day. A guy lost his false teeth on the dance floor in a club, and only realised it the next morning. That, in itself was funny, I thought. He went back to the club to look for them, and was amazed to find them…. only, as he was putting them back in his mouth, he discovered they were someone else’s dentures! UGH!

    1. Lauren,
      Aren’t they hilarious. When I showed Dad he laughed so hard at some of them. I think I laughed more at him then the acronyms. lol
      That is funny about the dentures. My question is, what “club” was he at? Just picturing an older gentlemen in one of the clubs here in the Untied States and that picture alone is hilarious. But to find out that there were at least 2 older people there, this club had to have been for Seniors or something.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. I really appreciate it.

      Be Blessed,
