Rolling on the floor laughing

ROFL stands for "rolling on the floor laughing," which is meant to say that you think something is so funny that you fell to the ground laughing. It is most often sent in text messages, but may also be used online on social sites or in chatrooms.

ROFL is similar to LMAO (laughing my a** off) in popularity and hyperbole. Both of these acronyms are used as a more expressive version of LOL (laughing out loud).

You will most likely see ROFL as a funny comment online, an image posted on social media, a goofy sound you heard with another person, or a video you received in a text message. And ROFL will probably only be sent by a teenager or young adult, but some older adults do like to use it to sound cool.
