The Origin of ROFL
No smiley in the history of smileys has perhaps had a greater impact than the smiley commonly known as "ROFL". With its humourous depiction of the modern-day term it has cemented its place in pop culture, and it has also been reborn many times over in different forms. ROFL of course being an acronym for "Rolling on the floor laughing."
So where did it come from?
Well, the very first version to appear was the Yahoo Messenger version (shown above), for the Yahoo instant messaging program.
It got a lot bigger when Smiley Central remade it...
And then smaller again when Kolobok artist Connie made a mini version...
It seems as though there is not a smiley program today that does not provide their own version of the ROFL smiley.
