Wat has 2 meanings
Wiping away tears
WAT is an acronym that stands for "wiping away tears." It is typically used online or in text messages as an alternative to LMAO or ROFL for when something funny occurs.
The acronym should only be used when something is REALLY funny and your laughter causes you to shed tears that you have to wipe away. It has to be beyond an LOL moment, which is far too mundane to capture a WAT moment.
