Matt’s even done it to me. I have a text from him that starts out with a Haha when he probably meant Okay.

I am guilty of many, many lols and emoticons myself so I share some shame.

Does he also use Milhouse’s glasses as a flint for lighting a fire?

Custom reaction emojis are my favorite part of Slack. Sometimes I’ll spend a few minutes just searching for the perfect *chef’s kiss* emoji.

I do contract work for various tech companies and I have found that the number and quality of custom Slack emoji is 100% predictive of how much I’ll enjoy my stint there. My main contract is a joyless company almost entirely made up of people from cultures outside the US, which there’s really nothing wrong with, but man, that place is such a drag, and they don’t have *any* custom emoji. Nobody talks to each other or works together.

The previous engagement was a mess, but the staff was awesome to work with and they had buttloads of emoji like a Janus-like :lolsob: and :doge: and lots of fast parrots.

Pretty sure I added :malort:, :lump: and :parsh: when I got Slack access at work. (We’re based in Chicago — SOMEONE had to add :malort:!)

Nelson was haw haw before the internet. I thought the reference was due to your physical similarities. HAWHAW. Did DT actually use internet abbreviations and did he do it correctly or was it a typo?

No I can’t because I honestly don’t know the character. Still never made it through an episode.

Well I wonder you attacked me and say I shouldn’t comment if I don’t know the information. And yet you comment here while admittedly ignorant? Please explain why you can comment and you attacked me for comment?

What?! I have no idea what you are talking about. I don’t recall attacking you ever unless I was entirely jesting and it got misunderstood. I’ve always liked you.

Okay, but I doubt I do disagree. Again, always liked you. Ask Matt if you doubt that at all. It’s not fun to have people dislike you and I don’t want you to think I ever once did. And I hope you don’t dislike me. That would make me sad.

As someone who shares an uncommon attribute with Nelson I eschew both lol and haha for the singular Ha!

I think I’m too used to Matt’s hahas. My bet was on Peter.

I use haha almost as frequently as you. It is generally an acknowledgement, more then actual laughter. Friends had pointed out that when I actually laugh at something funny I usually say Ha HAA, so when trying to relay actual laughing in text with friends I will type Ha HAA. Never been a big user of lol. I don’t know if this is a generational thing, as we are of similar ages, or what, but having grown up with instant messenger , and using the internet for communication, it seems like everyone has a simple catch all “humor response”. ha/haha/lol/rofl/lolz/iaohdl/etc….

Wait, did you out the Bishop?! Or does his pseudonym express an appreciation of both epic action and scifi movies?

We also love references to The Simpsons…

*tents fingers*

Excellent…

non-verbal tick

That sort of thing is more properly called a tic.

In Slack, perhaps you could use ‘nelson’ when you mean his distinctive utterance and ‘haha’ to express regular laughter.

Ticks do tend to be non-verbal.

For the first time I heard someone say lol in real life last week and I stopped mid conversation and just stared at them like I was Samuel L Jackson in Black Snake Moan

Same, as one word (“lawl”) to the point that when I hear people say ell-oh-ell I cringe.

I’m totally a lol’er, in that I end probably half of the messages I send through Gchat with “lol”. I compulsively use lol, mostly (I think) to imply a somewhat joking tone?

These are the last 3 messages I sent to a group…

“everything right off the bridge is brand new concrete lol”
“there’s no way they did all that work only to close the bridge forever lol”
“fascinating that they had already done some repairs like, 5 years ago lol”

Those lols are 100% unnecessary soooo, yeah, I might want to improve on that…

lol
