What Does DWL Mean?DWL means "Dying with Laughter." The abbreviation DWL is an expression of excessive hilarity, meaning you are laughing so much you might die from the effort. Similar phrases include ROFL (Rolling On Floor Laughing) and ROFLCOPTER (Rolling On Floor Laughing, Rotating Around Like A Helicopter).
Actual incidents of people dying from laughter are rare, although it usually occurs as a result of cardiac arrest or asphyxiation.
Interestingly, Zeuxias (a 5th-century BC Greek painter) is said to have died laughing at the humorous way he painted the goddess Aphrodite, after the old woman who commissioned it insisted on modelling for the portrait.
