When you get a text back saying FOTFL, it’s a sure sign you’ve cracked a killer joke. FOTFL stands for Falling on the Floor Laughing. It’s a way of expressing that something is hilariously funny, even though it’s not meant to be taken literally. It’s basically a more dramatic way of saying LOL, which we all know stands for Laugh Out Loud.

There are countless variations of LOL, and FOTFL is just one of them. It’s good to have a few of these in your texting arsenal. They can help you convey your amusement in a more specific and expressive way.

On the flip side, if you come across something that’s not at all funny, you might want to use NLOL or NOIRL. These acronyms are the exact opposite of FOTFL, and are perfect for those moments when something tries to be funny, but fails miserably.
