What does TNTL stand for?

Trying not to laugh

When you see TNTL in a text or chat message, it means the sender is “trying not to laugh.” They’re likely stifling a laugh in response to something funny you’ve sent them.

This acronym is often used when a person finds something incredibly funny but can’t physically laugh out loud. Maybe they’re at work, in a classroom, or somewhere else where it’s not appropriate to burst into laughter.

So, if someone sends you a message saying TNTL, it’s a sign that you’ve tickled their funny bone. They’re probably struggling to keep their giggles in check, all thanks to your hilarious joke or amusing video.

Remember, TNTL is a surefire way of knowing that your humor has hit the mark, even if the person can’t laugh out loud at that very moment.
