What kanji in Japanese is used for LOL?

You might have seen this kanji being used for expressing a deeply humorous situation at places, — 笑. I myself use: 笑 笑 笑.

In principle because we abuse lol the most, I think it comes to category of selfie and twerk, but in abusive usage perhaps lol will win.

Here is why its called as emi, first of all — which is my mother’s name: Amy, Emi, Emmy etc not Emma. This is the reason I remember this kanji, also I make her laugh out loud a lot with my joking nature. She used to get irritated a lot @my jokes, but now I am getting irritated when she laughs at my joke.

emi — 笑, is said as emi in emission. And I see that this is a combination of two kanji, one is a kanji which is “bamboo” –竹, and there is a kanji which is “sky” or “heaven” — 天.

Does that combination make you laugh? Bamboos in Sky. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ..

OK stop it. Use lol for compactness.

For record: there is a similar concept in Odisha, we say “a-ka-shaw kaw-in-a chi-li-ka mach-haw” which means “grapes in sky”, “fish from Chilika Lake”.

— not exactly grape but tamarind actually.

So basically I think thats the sense.

I am an experimental particle physicist, traveler, teacher, researcher, scientist and communicator of ideas. I am a quarkist and a bit quirky ! Hypothesis non fingo, eppur si muove, dubito cogito ergo sum are things that turn me on ! Researcher in experimental high energy physics (aka elementary particle physics; like “quarks, leptons & mesons and baryons”) … Teacher of Physics (and occasionally chemistry and maths) Blogger (check my website; mdashf.org) ! Love to read read and read but only stuff that interest me. Love to puff away my time in frivolities, just dreaming and may be thinking. Right now desperately trying to streamline myself.
