    For "55555, or, How to Laugh Online in Other Languages", please Google the following:

    55555-or-how-to-laugh-online-in-other-languages/

    "Imagine you and I are chatting somewhere and sometime on the Internet. Imagine that, in the course of our conversation, I -- and this may require some extra imagination -- say something utterly, awesomely hilarious. Something like this. Or like this. Or this. Or this. How would you respond?

    You could say the obvious thing: "Megan, that is utterly, awesomely hilarious." Most likely, though, you would say something else, something that better reflects a more natural response to my hilarity. Something like "LOL." Or ":-)" Or "ha." Or, if my hilarity is a little more hilarious than usual, "haha." Or, if my hilarity is a little less hilarious than usual, "heh." Or, if I my hilarity is slightly ironic, "hehe." Or, if my hilarity is slightly impish, "teehee." Or, if my hilarity is excessively hilarious in a way that requires some excessive laughter: "hahahaha." Or "haaaaaaaaaaaahaha." Or "hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha."

    But, so many hahas, you get the idea: You'd find a way, basically, to convey through textual means the uncontrollable laughter I have provoked.

    But: what if we weren't speaking English? What if we were chatting in Spanish, or Mandarin, or Japanese? In an amazing reddit thread this morning, redditors from non-English-speaking countries have been weighing in on a very good question: "what is internet culture like in your first language?"

    And the most-upvoted answers, awesomely and tellingly, have focused on laughter. Laughter rendered in letters and numbers and characters -- laughter that transcends language but also, online, utterly relies on it.

    So, how do you laugh, on the Internet, in other languages? Here -- haaaaaaaaaahahaha -- is a starting guide:"

    Note: There's more. Whew, a rough one for edits. Ha,

    Johnny, who's "Nelson"? That's my dear cousin's Maiden Name; she still
    resides in MA, and has been incredibly lonely since her husband died?

    I usually look for a response from Frank Burns or VR.
    Speaking of VR, haven't seen him here for a bit. He's probably in his vault counting his money.

    She is a tall, beautiful Swedish Lady. My "Cousin"? Oh, well, since you know her, I'll count
    on JLW to "Give the Bride Away" and, then, remain at the altar as gb's "Best Man". Ok?

    I'm goin' out with a German girl, her name is Fokker.
    She's just turned 23 and couldn't get much hotter.
    Introduced her to my folks and they made in plain.
    Can't you find yourself a girl with a different name?

    Now I'm not racist or worried about nationality.
    But it's true her name can be embarrassing you see.
    My pa's a bit deaf and so I had to raise my voice.
    He said for Christ's sake son, can't you try to be nice?

    I said can't you see I'm tryin' to explain?
    I'm not bein' rude, that's actually her name.
    She's the prettiest girl from Berlin town,
    but her name sounds like a verb not a noun.

    To make matters worse she's goin' out with me.
    My own name too is unusual you see.
    Her Mother is embarrassed and her father so is he.
    It's Imma Fokker and Johnny Longwoody.
