Gl-ASS-ery Of Terms (you're welcome)

When reading a Blogger’s post or comments, you might see various acronyms and or slang-type phases that are used as a form of shorthand similar to when a person writes a text message.

I had no idea what many of these stood for when I first entered the blogging world, and always wished there was some sort of Glossary of Terms I could look them up in.

Since there wasn’t, and I had to learn the hard way, I thought I would save you the time & trouble and create one here now.

Please feel free to use this as a future reference.


TERMS

1. LOLLover Of Lepers  – This is a very caring individual

2. STFUSqueeze That For Us - This person would like help making orange juice or fitting into tight pants.

3. LMAOLet Me Ask Orangutans – An inquisitive person with hairy friends might say this.

4. TWSS - That Was Seriously Sad  – This person is admitting their own failures.

5. TWHS - That Was Hilariously Sad - This is what you say to that person above as you laugh at their mistakes.

6. FTW- Feel The World - These people are Hippies.

7. ROFL - Right On Fun Loveski - This is a hip affirmation of your comedic wit with a Polish twist.

8. DH - Designated Hitter (similar to in Baseball) - A term mainly used by women to refer to the man who comes in and relieves the normal hitter (aka Hubs) when it’s performance time.

9. “ha”- short for “haha” - This means, “I thoroughly enjoyed what you just said, even though I may not have agreed with all of it. And I did notice the errors in grammar and spelling, as well as a few factual inconsistencies, but overall I felt it was good in content and meaning. Just not good enough for me to leave a longer comment.”

10. FAIL - self explanatory - See this post.

I thought it said "Feel the wood"

Too freaking funny! Thanks for the laughs.

Pat said...

Boy do I feel like a loser. I only knew the REAL meaning of 5 of those to begin with! I LOVE your interpretations, though! Especially #3.

It took me months to figure out what the heck this meant <3 ! I thought "greater than 3? What the hell are these people talking about? And why are they throwing math into the conversation? I HATE math!

when i first read your "DH" description, i thought it said "designated hitler." i was like, "wow. i'm gonna start using that from now on!" you can always find a use for hitler refrences. always.

WhisperingWriter said...

I really like LMAO. Orangutans rock.

ScoMan said...

I thought "FAIL" stood for "Fuckin Awesome I Love YOU'.. But that didn't make sense, because there's no "Y" there.

But now I know it's true meaning, I'm off to seek revenge.
