        1. ‘Muah’ is an onomatopoeic word. I.e a word when pronounced sounds similar to its meaning. (that is a kiss in this context)..more examples: phew, meow, hiss, bam, wham, tsk.

  1. Does anyone have any idea what this means?? LMFGAL TAO
    This was posted by my young daughters b/f on his wall after watching a youtube video.

  2. I just had to search google for lml….& they said it was “laughing mad loud”….lmao & lol seem fine to me…why the need to come up with this one…wasn’t there something cooler to come up with???

  3. There is nothing wrong with the shortcuts the kids use. In my opinion, the “f” word is totally unnecessary and instead of lmao, why can’t they use lmbo, (laughing my butt off) Why must they use foul laungage? However, when I am trying to read one of these emails it does give me a headache, I have to get my reference material out so I can look up what is being said. “RIF-LMBO” 😉

    BTW: thx for the list.

    1. I agree with Connie. There must be something that can be done about the foul language and should not be allowed on FB.

    2. for us kids its not really as offensive as it is to u
      its just the way we hear everyone taking and we tend to start using these words.
      i am just saying that its not as bad as most adults say it is
