What does HH1/2KO stand for?

Ha ha, half-kidding only

Ever received a text that ended with HH1/2KO? It’s a playful slang term used online that stands for ‘ha ha, half-kidding only’. This is used when the sender wants to communicate that they were joking, but there’s a bit of seriousness in their message too.

For instance, if a friend exaggerates a story and then sends HH1/2KO, they’re letting you know that while their tale was tall, there was a smidgen of truth in it. It’s a way of providing a cheeky disclaimer of sorts, that while they may have stretched the truth, it wasn’t an outright fib.

Another common use of HH1/2KO is when someone suggests something that might sound crazy or reckless. In this context, HH1/2KO serves as a safety net. If you reject the idea, they can simply say they were joking. But if you agree, they can say they were serious. It’s a clever way of testing the waters without fully committing to an idea.
