This is a question I don't understand the attraction

Smaug says: Ricky Gervais. Lesbian pr0n. Going into a crowded bar, purely because it's crowded. All these things seem to be popular with everybody else, but I just can't work out why. What leaves you cold just as much as it turns everyone else on?

Can't believe I didn't think of this before:
Saying the word 'lol' out loud. As in:

*Person 1 tells joke*

Person 2: "lol"

Me: "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh"

Does this actually happen?
I hope to god it's an isolated outbreak.

Playing some online games with friends using headset, messing around telling jokes etc and he says 'lol' on the mic!

They could just laugh!

But lol is pretty much a full stop these days lol

That is just unbelievably stupid!
I'm surprised you haven't had the urge to scream down his headset or, better yet, set off a rape alarm.

I always knew it would end up in the vocabulary, but somehow I am not happy at being proven right.

my wife says
'etc' in conversation and 'eg' - surely these are just in writing

I think
it must be said with an enormous amount of self-parody, and even then, it's pretty fucking stupid.

You would think so
But no. I first heard it used by a guy in an XKCD t-shirt, and he really meant it. He described it as a phrase "For when something is funny, but not funny enough to laugh at it". I wish I was making this up, or even exaggerating.

I once knew
A youngish guy who used it. I wanted to tear off his head and piss down his throat. (Instead I smiled wanly).

just language on the move. Language evolves, or sadly as in this case, devolves.

Give it a year and it'll most likely be in the Oxford English Dictionary.
