MSW?! (Mom say what?!)

Texting acronyms can stump even the best parents:

Mom: Your great-aunt just passed away. LOL.
Son: Why is that funny? Mom: It’s not funny, David! What do you mean?
Son: Mom, LOL means Laughing Out Loud.
Mom: I thought it meant Lots of Love. I have to call everyone back.

Daughter: I got an A in Chemistry.
Mom: WTF!
Daughter: Mom, what do you think WTF means?
Mom: Well That’s Fantastic.


Mom: What do IDK, LY & TTYL mean?
Son: I don’t know, love you, talk to you later.
Mom: OK, I will ask your sister.

Good one Marianne! I get confused by those at times myself! :D :D :D

Marianne Rooster May 16, 2017

Lol - you should have seen a certain game with acronyms.

I thought WTF stood for Wolfram  TetraFluoride. :D

Virginia TheOtherTink May 15, 2017

O'Kay, O'Tink...ima start using that now, and say OTHER TINK TOLD ME it stands for Wolfram Tetra Flouride...

@ Virginia,

If O'Tink said so, it must be so.  :D


There once was a fairy, O'Tink,

Who drove lots of people to drink.

She KNEW all her compounds

(Could TELL from the bomb sounds),

That didn't explode, but they'd STINK!

Virginia TheOtherTink May 16, 2017

It's beautiful, O'Tink...(sigh)

Marianne TheOtherTink May 16, 2017


Indeed - Chemistry is one of the essential "resources" - :D:D:D!

For your German roots; some "Spiegel reader comments" - very sarcastic and critical:

and some info about certain emissions:

Salomon der Weise spricht:

Laute Fürze stinken nicht,

aber die so leise zischen

und so still dem "Po" entwischen,

Mensch, vor denen hüte Dich,

denn die stinken fürchterlich.


TheOtherTink TheOtherTink May 17, 2017

@ Marianne,

Salomon macht' einen Furz,

Leider war es doch ein Schurz.


Marianne TheOtherTink May 18, 2017


Lol - wait a minute: which one?

This kind:




or was it "Sturz", or "zu kurz" ?


TheOtherTink TheOtherTink May 18, 2017

@ Marianne,

None of the above.  A 'Schurz' is German slang for the English slang 'shart'.  :O :blush: :) :angel: :D

Virginia May 15, 2017

Okay Marianne, here is the grandaddy of the acronyms...I saw this one, and took a while Googling to learn what it means...


Ready? Wait for it...

I Love You So Much I Feel Like I'm Going To Explode...

Marianne Virginia May 16, 2017

Wow - wonderful!

This is one of the nicest! :)
