What does FOTCL stand for?

Falling off the chair laughing

When someone sends you FOTCL, they’re not literally tumbling off their chair in laughter. This acronym is more of a figurative expression, indicating that the joke or meme you’ve shared is really hilarious.

However, some people who are prone to bouts of hearty laughter might actually fall off their chair laughing, if what you send is funny enough. It’s considered quite the accomplishment to get someone to FOTCL and still be able to type it out to let you know.

Not everyone gets to experience this triumph. So, if you’ve managed to get a FOTCL out of someone, it’s a GJ (good job) for you.
