LOL is the canned laughter of the internet

(Warning: Internet Curmudgeon mode is enabled)

Everyone please stop LOLing at yourself. If you post something funny or giggly on facebook, twitter or thenextsocialnetworkoftheweek, do not put “lol” at the end of your update/tweet.

e.g. “I did [this really stupid thing] last night! LOL!”

Its either funny or its not. Your friends will let you know if its funny by responding “lol”. More than likely they will be laughing at you and not with you. When you do it on your own its like canned laughter and just as appealing. Yeah we get it. You want me laugh with you here. Thanks for the hint.

OK – now back to your regularly scheduled internet.
