Social Media Vocabulary: LMGTFY

LMGTFY: Let me Google that for you.

LMGTFY is the 21st century’s equivalent of “do I LOOK like your mother?”

Simply put, it’s pretty rude AND really funny.  If you know your audience.

James: ‘hey man, do you know how tall mount everest is?  I need to know for a project’

John: ‘LMGTFY bro.’

Which roughly translates to “it’s not my job to scour the internet for easy-to-find information.’

So next time you get a question that just makes you go ‘Really?  I’m supposed to know that?’ then give your friends a quick LMGTFY.

And if you are feeling REALLY sassy, send them a link from!
