Today I noticed that the "lol" symbol looks like a drowning guy, and all you see is his head and arms sticking out of the water. I bet he's not laughing out loud anymore. MLIA

What about peanut butter sodomy?
 
[ - ]  j_luveyoGood: 63Bad: 25 years ago
sodomizing peanut butter isn't a joke. just a nasty mess afterwards.
 
[ - ]  SheetsofEgyptionCottonGood: 50Bad: 125 years ago

[ - ]  nerdgoddessGood: 87Bad: 65 years ago
Lol... I hate laughing at the things that I'm not supposed to think is funny, but due to my contract with the Dark Lord and the fact that I no longer have a soul, I do.

Slight possibility it's the same poster, just on two different sites. Not likely though.
 
[ - ]  sicilyxsantiGood: 32Bad: 05 years ago
I actually realized today that it looks like a happy person celebrating!
 
[ - ]  MaybeILostItGood: 32Bad: 05 years ago
Without a body? I'd celebrate too!!!
 
[ - ]  sugarfiendGood: 11Bad: 25 years ago
Maybe it's a pool party and they're celebrating their/someone else's birthday... O:
 
[ - ]  digitalboredomGood: 0Bad: 25 years ago

Or somebody going down a roller coaster.
 
[ - ]  ZorroGood: 42Bad: 05 years ago
I see it as a guy going down a roller coaster and sticking his arms up in the air. O_o

[ - ]  kateyrose21Good: 23Bad: 25 years ago
Best post in a while!
 
[ - ]  boomerangGood: 33Bad: 45 years ago
Reminds me of another story that said something along the lines of: I noticed that the word "bed" actually looks like a bed.
 
Oh yea I read that one as well, it also made me smile :)
 
[ - ]  boomerangGood: 14Bad: 05 years ago
Yeah, I really like that one. But it doesn't necessarily take much effort to make me smile.
 
I think it's one of the "best this year"s.
 
[ - ]  sugarfiendGood: 8Bad: 25 years ago
I believe it is THE best this year. o:

[ - ]  hearmeroarGood: 5Bad: 25 years ago
It looks like a bowling ball going down that whatever you call it. xD
 
[ - ]  MaybeILostItGood: 11Bad: 05 years ago
Bowling lane?
 
[ - ]  hearmeroarGood: 19Bad: 05 years ago
Yeah! Thanks, sometimes I forget very simple things and look like a cotton-headed-ninny-muggins.
 
[ - ]  MaybeILostItGood: 8Bad: 05 years ago
We'll let it slide this one time (I'm so punny. I know).
 
[ - ]  hearmeroarGood: 3Bad: 05 years ago
High five !

[ - ]  heykaylaGood: 22Bad: 05 years ago
If this was Facebook, I'd like it. I just average'd it.
 
[ - ]  quinchlesGood: 0Bad: 05 years ago
Funny you say this, cause I'm a fan of MLIA on facebook, and they posted this story. I "like"d it.
 
[ - ]  RaspberryJamGood: 47Bad: 05 years ago
Maybe he was laughing out loud while swimming and that's what caused him to drown.
 
[ - ]  violetobsidianGood: 11Bad: 05 years ago
Or went swimming too soon after eating...
 
[ - ]  rAiNbOwZeBrA789Good: 5Bad: 45 years ago
this is a really really really good one!! i love it when people make words look like something, and i love how she made the connection between drowning and laughing in the last sentence. *saving*
 
[ - ]  MusicalChristian15Good: 53Bad: 05 years ago
so now instead of is your glass half empty or half full, it's going to be: do you see lol as a drowning person or a person raising the roof with happiness?
 
[ - ]  rAiNbOwZeBrA789Good: 0Bad: 25 years ago
hahaha!! i wanna save that too
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 4Bad: 25 years ago
This is actually pretty good. :)
 
[ - ]  digitalboredomGood: 2Bad: 105 years ago
Hey wifey!
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 2Bad: 105 years ago
Ayyy :D
 
[ - ]  ZorroGood: 0Bad: 85 years ago
Razzle! :D
 
[ - ]  digitalboredomGood: 0Bad: 85 years ago
How have you been?
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 0Bad: 125 years ago
Zorro! :D I've been alright. And yourself?
 
[ - ]  digitalboredomGood: 2Bad: 125 years ago
Pretty good. my roommate just bought the modern warfare 2 game. so ive been playing that.. how have the comments been?
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 6Bad: 45 years ago
I don't know. I've been on errands allllll day. I got some meds for my insomnia and visited the chiropracter. And I just sounded like someone in their mid fourties. Great.
 
[ - ]  digitalboredomGood: 2Bad: 25 years ago
Hahaha, thats exactly what I was thinking as I read that.
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 4Bad: 45 years ago
Haha. My mom always says that I was born at fourty.
 
[ - ]  trumpetgeek88Good: 0Bad: 25 years ago
Razzle, if it makes you feel better, I'm 21 years old with arthritis in both of my hips. I feel forty most of the time.
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 0Bad: 25 years ago
Ooh. That sucks. :/ Maybe we'll end up in the same MLIA nursing home soon?
 
[ - ]  trumpetgeek88Good: 4Bad: 25 years ago
That would be awesome! I'll bring the trumpet cookies...with reduced sugar, just in case either of us has "diabeetus". (LOL, I love those commercials!)
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 0Bad: 25 years ago
Hahahaha. I'm not familiar with it.
 
[ - ]  trumpetgeek88Good: 0Bad: 25 years ago
Haha, it's this grumpy old guy talking about having diabetes, but he pronounces it "diabeetus". I think his name is Wilford Brimley. http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/diabeetus
 
[ - ]  KirenGood: 8Bad: 05 years ago
I approve this as an average MLIA.
 
[ - ]  MaybeILostItGood: 26Bad: 65 years ago
I think it looks like the letter "o" between the letter "l" and the letter "l" again. Perhaps I'm too average to understand...
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 19Bad: 45 years ago
I don't understand how you see that. It's obviously a man with his arms up, and it MIGHT resemble two 'l's and one 'o'.
 
[ - ]  hearmeroarGood: 4Bad: 25 years ago
Razzle, your username always makes me think of Chicago. That makes you awesome, you know...
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 2Bad: 25 years ago
How? And thanks. haha.
 
[ - ]  hearmeroarGood: 0Bad: 25 years ago
The 'Razzle Dazzle' song. Oh, and I meant Chicago the movie...Hahah
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 2Bad: 25 years ago
Haha. I'veeeee never seen it. I actually just came up with it. And instead of 'Razzle Dazzle', I say 'Bedazzled', because I used to bedazzle everything. But I'll just go with what you said. haha.
 
[ - ]  hearmeroarGood: 2Bad: 05 years ago
Can I call you Chicago for now on ? XD No, not really. I mean, if you're fine with it. *awkward silence
 
[ - ]  RazzleBedazzledGood: 2Bad: 25 years ago
Chicago is absolutely fine. Haha.
 
[ - ]  violetobsidianGood: 0Bad: 05 years ago
Chicago the musical? That is one awesome musical.
 
[ - ]  ichnalGood: 2Bad: 05 years ago
This made me laugh out loud.
 
[ - ]  bigfootexistsGood: 11Bad: 05 years ago
This is a very good MLIA. AVERAGE.
 
[ - ]  nerdgoddessGood: 9Bad: 05 years ago
They could have their mouth in an O for another reason....

Riding in the back of a pick up catching flies?
 
[ - ]  nerdgoddessGood: 2Bad: 05 years ago
Sure, that ;)
 
[ - ]  cerd2009Good: 53Bad: 05 years ago
My friend and I are endlessly amused by this. We have spent whole conversations making the drowning man get into worse and worse situations. My favorite is him swimming away from the shark attack: ----^-----/o/----
 
[ - ]  violetobsidianGood: 2Bad: 05 years ago
What are some other ones?
 
[ - ]  superwomanvicGood: 4Bad: 05 years ago
He sure looks panicked lol. d: ^^^lol^^^ (on fire?)
 
[ - ]  ChangminsBabyGirlGood: 4Bad: 05 years ago
You could also type the shark attack one like this: ~~~~~^^^~~~~/o/~~~ Triple shark attack. :p
 
[ - ]  superwomanvicGood: 2Bad: 05 years ago
Or like this... ~^~~^~~lol~~^~~^~ Surrounded!
 
[ - ]  quinnopolisGood: 10Bad: 05 years ago
Oh, that's wonderful. This will be very satisfying when boring people respond in conversations just "lol". I'll pretend it is them drowning.
 
[ - ]  xxbirdsinmyearsxGood: 0Bad: 85 years ago
yeah...this one was definitely stolen from me..i posted this like last week..
 
[ - ]  nerdgoddessGood: 0Bad: 05 years ago
Things that were posted last week are very likely not even in voting rounds yet. I know mine aren't.
 
[ - ]  xxbirdsinmyearsxGood: 0Bad: 25 years ago
well this is pretty much exactly what i said..unless its a huge coincidence..
 
[ - ]  nerdgoddessGood: 2Bad: 15 years ago
You sure it's not yours?
 
[ - ]  xxbirdsinmyearsxGood: 0Bad: 25 years ago

I'd say "win" except we discovered this ages ago. We determined that proper!drowning man was \o/ because he looked like he was waving for help instead of cheering. \o and o/ are cripples. ;)
 
"OK" is a sideways stick person .. hahah
 
[ - ]  Your_GrannyGood: 4Bad: 05 years ago
QK = Ninja.
 
You win, ninjas are better.

[ - ]  eabowieGood: 18Bad: 05 years ago

[ - ]  wtrsport430Good: 0Bad: 15 years ago
If someone was drowning, they wouldn't be able to stick their arms out of the water that high. If anybody can stick their arms out that high, I'm sure they are good enough swimmers.
