Need some good laugh today?
The word death and laughter is seldom incorporated with each other. Well, that is possible if the one who died is perhaps your most hated character in a movie, but in real life? If you ever thought that the death of someone, especially a loved one or a relative would ever make you laugh, that has a zero percent chance of happening. But look, this conversation below is quite a different story!
In a ‘convo’ shared by Bicolano page “Lintian Sana,” a mother shares some bad news through text to her child; saying “Gadan na baga si uncle mo. Lol.” [your uncle died. Lol.]
To the recipient, it was baffling; why would the sender say “Lol” towards such a very sad, sensitive matter.
Even the sender got confused afterwards..
Find out what happened next.
(To save you the trouble, we translated the conversation from Bicolano dialect to English)
So there you go. The ‘Nanay’ thought LOL means “Lots of Love”. Be careful next time we use those ‘millennial’ abbreviations; to avoid misunderstandings. However, some claims say that the original meaning of LOL is indeed lots of love. But laugh out loud became more popular up to the present day.
Be careful also of using the phrase “lintian sana,” it is best to ask a bicolano friend first before using it.
And while we’re not far from the topic, here’s 14 millennial abbreviations you should take note of, according to SHEfinds.com
BAE: before anyone else
FOMO: fear of missing out
FTW: for the win
HBD: happy birthday
ICYMI: in case you missed it
IMO: in my opinion
IRL: in real life
LMK: let me know
MYOB: mind your own business
NSFW: not safe for work
OOTD: outfit of the day
SMH: shaking my head
TBH: to be honest
YOLO: you only live once
