The ways people from different countries laugh

Apparently, laughing is not just limited to ‘haha’. In other parts of the world, as it turns out, there’s also ‘kkkk’ or ‘5555’ or ‘LWKMD’.

Newspaper ‘Latinos Post’ recently published a series showing us the ways people from different countries express laughter, or specifically, the ‘ha’ sound. For instance in Thailand, people pronounce the number five as ‘ha’, so typing ‘555’ would onomatopoeically sound the same as ‘hahaha’.

The same goes for the Japanese with their ‘wwww’ and the Spanish with ‘jajaja’, among others. Of course, we all have that one friend who laughs with ‘hahoohee – *snorts* – hahahee’. Now that’s truly different!
