"laughing my ass off" means to laugh very very hard.

Here "ass" refers to the buttocks, in American slang. So the literal translation for this would be "laughing till my buttocks fell off". Of course that isn't true, and I think it might have come from the more widely accepted usage "laughing my head off", which means the same thing.

So, Titi Bo, next time you post a joke and someone says "LMAO", that means "It's very funny, and I'm laughing very hard".

Hope that helps!

I used to say "lmao" and similar myself, when playing online.

Shorthand for Laugh My A** Off, LMAO is commonly used in chat rooms and text based communications. Another common alternative to LMAO is LMFAO and LMMFAO, which is short for Laugh My F**ing A* Off and Laughing My Mother F**ing A* Off.
