Which Widely Used Internet Acronym Is Coincidentally Self-Referential In Dutch?

To Aid In Maintenance Urban Planners In Melbourne Australia Assigned Email Addresses To What City Feature?

Answer: LOL

LOL is a long standing internet and chat acronym that means “laugh out loud”. Coincidentally, “lol” is also a word, not acronym, in the Dutch language.

What makes this coincidence noteworthy is that it isn’t merely an alignment of letters but of meaning, too: in Dutch “lol” means “fun”.
