Bonnie and I were talking about how it is sometimes hard to recognize what is meant by all the shorthand that is used in instant messaging. That's why there are websites like NetLingo. Of course, you can not really look up all of the abbreviations as they fly at you, but it sometimes helps when you are sorting it out later.
In the interest of making the world even more confusing, here are some Monty Python additions to IM shorthand:
MBH - My brain hurts!
NETSI - Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!
ANFSCD - And now for something completely different
IALAIOK - I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay.
UCT - Upper Class Twit
SW - Silly Walk
VSP - Very Silly Party
POTT - Penguin on the telly (We have one. Don't you?)
HIWTRAC - Hello, I wish to register a complaint.
IASBOLIRIP - It's a stiff, bereft of life. It rests in peace. (Some young IMers say this of email.)
ALOTBSOL - Always look on the bright side of life
STMIAN - She turned me into a newt! (A common complaint)
IGB - I Got Better.
KWSN - Knights who say "Ni!"
NNNNN - Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni!
STIGTS - Stop! This is getting too silly!
That last one could be particularly useful for some IM exchanges. Have any other suggestions?
