JK

What does JK stand for?

Just kidding

JK is a popular acronym that translates to “just kidding”. It’s used often when someone is joking or not being serious about something they’ve just said.

Let’s take an example. Say a person tells a hardcore fan of Star Wars that Star Wars is the worst movie series ever. They might quickly send a message saying JK to show they were only teasing.

Another situation could be when someone says they’ve hit the jackpot in the lottery. If you start planning how you’ll spend their winnings and they quickly send you a JK, it means they were joking and didn’t really win anything.

Example for using ‘JK’ in a conversation

Hey, did you hear about the new superhero movie coming out?

Yeah, I heard it’s going to be amazing! Can’t wait to see it!

Actually, JK! There’s no superhero movie. Just wanted to see your reaction!

Haha, you got me! You always know how to pull a prank! πŸ˜„
