What does OTGL stand for?

On the ground laughing

When you see OTGL in a text, it means the person is “on the ground laughing”. They’re probably reacting to a hilarious joke, meme, or video you shared with them.

This acronym is a less common version of ROFL, which is internet speak for rolling on the floor laughing. So, when someone sends you OTGL, they want you to visualize them rolling around on the ground, overcome with laughter.

Though, let’s be real, they’re probably not physically doing this because it would look pretty strange. Still, it’s the image they’re trying to convey to show just how funny they found your message. Yes, OTGL is a bit of a strange acronym. But it’s all part of the fun and creativity that comes with online communication.
