    The others have it right. I'd just like to add that it's not an acronym. It's an abbreviation.

    Abbreviation = a word composed of the initial letters of the words in a short phrase, like IBM (International Business Machines), the IRS (Internal Revenue Service), and the FBI. The letters are pronounced as individual letters, e.g., eye-bee-em.

    Acronym = an abbreviation pronounced as a word, like NATO (nay-toh, not en-ay-tee-oh), NASA, quasar, laser, radar, and scuba.

    It's not an acronym or an abbreviation. It's an initialism.

    An initialism is an abbreviation formed from the initial letters of the constituent words in a phrase (e.g., IRS), of syllables or components of a word (e.g., TNT), or in a combination of whole words and parts (e.g., ESP) , and is pronounced as the names of the individual letters rather than a word.

    both meanings take position as customary meanings on the Acronym Finder score equipment, yet snicker Out Loud is #a million. (Acronym Finder stumbled on fifty 8 meanings plus a group extra interior the Acronym Attic.)

    I think its LMFAO, not IMFAO, and it stands for "Laughing My F***ing A** Off."
