Tom French BS: What does 'LOL' mean? (44) RE: BS: What does 'LOL' mean? 15 Nov 01


Hey, thanks for all the great information. My curiousity has not only been thoughly satisfied, it's buried at least six feet under.

However, new questions have arisen. No doubt that the LOLS have great bearing on a chorus that I heard John Roberts and Tony Barrand sing to a particular song, which might have otherwise been sung Fa-la-la-etc. It went:

Fol-LOL-LOL-LOL, it's a lovely day.
Fol-LOL-LOL-LOL Lady.
Fol-LOL-LOL-LOL, it's a lovely day.
To me Fol-LOL-LOL-LOL Lady.

Although I formerly believed that LOL was a nonsense sylable, the various meanings of LOL seem to indicate that the above is an acronym chorus (AC), understood by a select few individuals who knew the order of meanings. What is mystifying to us in this day was probably a matter of common community communication (CCC). It seems that if this could be deciphered, we may have the makings of a Rosetta Stone vocal phrasing (RSVP) understanding for the interpretation of the many other choruses that appear in various ancient syllabic songs (ASS). Could anyone assist in the deciphering.
