1. Japan: wwwwwwww
The Japanese gaming world was quick to adopt “w” for the word “warai” which means laughing. Now, the more wwwwwww’s the better!
2. Israel: חחח/ההה
The letter ח is pronounced ‘kh’ so putting a bunch together is khkhkhkhkh which is kind of like hahahah
4. Sweden: *asg*
*asg* is an abbreviation for asgarv which means intense laughter in Swedish
5. Everywhere: ha3
It’s most popular in Malaysia and the Arab world, but it’s so simple (“ha” x3) that you see it just about everywhere.
mdr comes from the French phrase “mort de rire” which means “dying of laughter”
9. The Middle East: هههههههههههه
This is the Arabic script equivalent of hahaha but because Arabic uses short vowels it’d be more like hhhhhhhhhh
12. Thailand: 555
The sound of 5 in Thai is ‘ha’ so 555 is literally hahaha
14. Greece: ΛΟΛ
15. Nigeria: LWKM and LWKMD
Translates to “laugh wan kill me” and “laugh wan kill me dead.”
