Rolling On The Floor (ROTFL)

What I want to know if, is they're really ROTFL, how can they be typing in the fact that they're ROTFL, and if they're not ROTFL, then they have no business claiming to be ROTFL. Maybe we need to propose FLIROTFL (Feel Like I'm ROTFL), or maybe MMWTROTFL (Makes Me Want TO ROTFL). One also must wonder whether ROTFLers ROTFL about other things elsewhere in life; if so, how come we don't see them ROTFLing out and about, in the post offices, supermarkets, offices, libraries, etc. Perhaps they have a twelve step program, although I guess if they can take any steps, they aren't ROTFL and therefore don't need it. Of course, we can't be _sure_ they're always ROTFLing; perhaps some of these are people who simply forgot to take their meds, or glazed over waiting for MOSAIC to download full screen images at 14.4.
