What does FOTCL stand for?

Falling off the chair laughing

Most people who send you FOTCL aren't actually "falling off the chair laughing." Instead, this acronym is typically used figuratively, to let you know that whatever joke or meme you just sent is exceptionally LOL-worthy.

However, those who have a propensity for BL may actually FOTCL if you send them something funny enough. Getting someone to both fall off their chair laughing and yet remain coherent enough to send you FOTCL is an achievement - one that many people are never lucky enough to accomplish. If you've managed it, GJ.
