A shortened variation of "Laugh-out-loud" LOL, also could just be a single-letter acronym for "Laugh". Typically used during "online speak" or texting. Multiple laughs could be multiple L's.
"wow that kid is such a nerd, L".

The new LOL ; point of all abbreviations is to be short and meaningful. L = Laugh, effective in responding to random nonsense, and could be used effectively in a sarcastic tone as well.

'L' works better than 'LOL' because it can be used in a variety of responses more effectively. Just saying 'I Laugh' is saying this could be funny, lame or useless - you are not 'laughing out loud'. It is rather that what is said in the statement is laughable.
