ROFL (archaic: ROTFL, pronounced "Roffle") is primarily used by smug 16 year old girls laughing at each others' hilarious antics. It meant "rolling on the floor laughing," and was first used as far back as Shakespeare. In 'Macbeth' he wrote:
—Shakespeare knew how work the blue
Two days after Shakespeare wrote this, it became irritating. By the advent of Broadband it was as passé as corduroy and today it is considered firmly old meme. DO NOT USE THIS EXPRESSION. If you do the reader may mistake you for an asshole and injure themselves ROTFL at your expense. To do so is to indicate that you are as slow as your dial-up connection and TWICE AS FUCKING ANNOYING.
To update the expression and safeguard it against the HORROR of the millennium bug it was streamlined by removing a superfluous 'T'. This was found to increase its productivity by up to 25%, preserving the internet users' time for more important pursuits. Win!
