    Default So, has anyone actually said the word "lol" in real life?

    Sadly, I have used so much of this online chat speak I have begun to speak it in real life. Much more then once I will think the word lol, and one time I actually said it out loud I have even almost said the word "rofl" (I pronounce "roffle" >.>) Anyways, has this happened to anyone else?

    Yes, I have said "lol" in this "real life" you speak of. Mind you, it was entirely intentional.

    Yeah, I've said these before, but it was completely on purpose, since I don't even usually use them online.

    Heh. This thread title makes me chuckle. Yes, I say 'Lol' IRL, but only when I'm being sarcastic... which is often... so I say 'lol' often. Though, it's always spelt out.

    While I don't recall ever having said it myself, I do recall this one guy who would mockingly spell it out. Also, some of my friends had taken to using pwnd (pronounced as loaned, with the obvious replacement of l for p) in regular conversation the last year or two of high school.

    Thats about the closest I've ever gotten. Otherwise I'd have to hope my tongue would fall out so I could run over it a few times with a Transformer shaped as a steamroller.

    No. But in an attempt to say, "I fell lol" the guy I'm dating accidently typed "I feel lol" which prompted me to prompty save that for posterity.

    I haven't, and I dislike it when people use online slang in real life. This past year there was a kid in my spanish class who would do that all the time. lol, pwnd, everything. He and I got along horribly, but not because of his usage of lol in regular conversation, though that added to his overall annoying-ness

    People probably said the same thing about "okay" back in the day. Butchering language just makes it tastier.

    Edit: Er, anyway, to answer the question, yes I have, but only when discussing Internet slang with a linguistics professor. Does that count?

    In any case, I've definitely used the word "pwn" and its variations numerous times in conversation.

    No, I have not, nor will I ever. I have, however heard someone else say it. (Only once fortunately) but they spelled it out rather than pronounced it as a word. I have, however, very unfortunately met a group of guys who constantly would use "roxxorz" and "suxxorz" as real words in place of "rocks" and "sucks". ugh.

    When me and my friends are messing around, we occasionally say it.

    This is, of course, after we are totally high on sugar and caffeine. I never say it in "serious" conversatyions.

    I say it with a perfectly straight face, usually resulting in laughter of those around me. Come to think of it, I haven't said it for months. I never use it while chatting either though, I'm a fan of "haha"

    I say "lawl," to my friends when I'm joking around, but never really to anybody that I don't know, or to somebody who wouldn't appreciate it.

    And sometimes I say "wtf," when I'm not really in the position to say the uh... stronger variation.

    Funny though, because I never use either of those online.

    Our head boy uses it all the time at our school, so it's a tad of an in joke.

    "rofl" is a also much commonly used one I am sad to report.

    Only ever intentionally.

    Whenever my boss recieves an email from someone who is talking rubbish he will announce to the office "Double-you tee eff mate!"

    The following rules are integral to any roleplaying game:
    Rule 0: The Gamesmaster is always right.
    Rule 7: Do not take the piss.

    Only when I'm being silly and/or sarcastic.

    though I do use "pwnd" sometimes. And "sauce" has become a suffix. ie "lamesauce" "awesomesauce" "weaksauce"

    win and "wtf" are also occasionally used.

    I pronounce it "powned", like owned with a p in front.

    EDIT: In my mind as I read it, I don't actually say it aloud.

    I pronounce it 'pooned', as in Welsh 'w' has the same pronunciation as 'oo.' Thus cwm (which means valley) would be pronounced 'Koom.'

    This is the correct way. I hate to use internet lingo in real conversations. I do not even like to use contractions.
