What is jelly short for?


Jelly is a funny way to abbreviate "jealous." It is often used by teenagers when they are playfully jealous about something their friends received or experienced.

Jelly is often seen in text messages, online chatrooms, and social sites, such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. It is typically not used for serious instances of jealousy, like when a spouse is flirting or a parent displays more affection to one child than another. If it is used in serious contexts, it will sound really stupid.


He gets twice as much as me. That's what I'm jelly about
