When is the BWL acronym used?

Bursting with laughter

BWL is an acronym that stands for "Bursting with laughter," and is a variation of the commonly used LOL. It is typically used when texting or chatting online to react to something really funny.

The acronym is a little more extreme than LOL because it implies that your body is bursting apart from how much you are laughing. This may be because your friend just tripped on the street curb and spilled her milkshake all over herself. Or it may be because your mom's text autocorrected to something very inappropriate. Be careful who you use it with because it is not well known and may actually confuse people that receive it.
