I often find myslef saying, "That made me laugh", rather than lol, as it denotes that i actually did use an auditory exclamation.
when people say lol to somehtign that isn't outrageously funny, usually i just assume that lol is a filler, or thrown in so it's not akward.
i hate "be ar be" much more than "lol"
not an internet work but i called someone a wench a week or two ago.
