That is a hilarious true story. Lucky for this kid he probably won’t become the next Bad Luck Brian.
Isn’t that how it sort of works sometimes, something it very funny, funny, or only sort of funny and we use the lol, Laugh Out Loud shorthand to indicate something was amusing, but not to what degree. LMAO and LMBO is usually reserved for something that really made us LOL, or in old time shorthand, made us ROFL (rolling on the floor laughing) or the extended ROTFLMAO. Today you use ROFL and kids are all, “WTF is ROFL?” IDK is an appropriote answer since explaining it will only get you a “that’s lame” or a whatev.
