I don’t claim to know everything about social media, Internet or text lingo. In fact, I’m always pretty far behind the curve. Like, you’ve probably been saying bahaha for years. I get it. I typically go with a simple haha. I never lol. Doesn’t seem to fit my style. Now and then I’ll throw in a muahaha but only after saying something villainish. I live in Nashville. Maybe I should say muahahaw? Sounds more Nashvillainish. Here’s a guide to my definitions of laughing through your device:
Ha = I heard what you said. I know you probably thought it was funny. It really wasn’t.
Haha = could mean funny or interesting.
Hahaha = truly funny.
Hahahaha = unable to stop laughing, can’t top what you said.
Hahapow = someone laughing in Chicago, followed by a gunshot, obviously.
Bahaha = unexpectedly funny comment.
Bahahaw = unexpectly funny comment from someone in the south.
Bahaho = unexpected laughing at what a guy said.
Lol = laughing on the inside, hardly ever literal.
Hehe = more than a ha, less than a haha.
Heehee = hidden laughter, as if a prank has just been confessed.
Hee Haw = classic TV show from the 70s.
If you have other lingo you’ve used or made up, feel free to share!
