LOL Is Dead! R.I.P.

How long have we been using and overusing LOL? Fo-ev-uh!!!! So, CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WDCG (G105)/RALEIGH PD/afternoon star RANDI WEST and COLUMBIA VP/Promotion JON BORRIS came up with MML -- Makes Me Laff -- as the only acceptable shortcode for displaying your personal amusement at something, going forward.
WEST told ALL ACCESS, "I don't need to know the manner or intensity in which you are laffing, just need to know that you are laffing. We did this yesterday on the air -- and the reaction was huge. I got an e-mail from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR PEOPLE's RIGHTS TO LAFF OUT LOUD, and they were not happy -- telling me what we are doing is outrageous. To that I replied, MML!"
