Internet shorthand for "laughing my arse (ass) off" which is surely appropriate given the subject.

Didn't help the donkey much either! lol

Reminds me of the time while on leave in Syria some of my fellow Canadians and I visited the "Crac de Chevalier" just east of the city of Homs. The "Crac" is an immense citadel built on a hill top and is still in exquisite condition. The Crusaders built many fortresses throughout the Middle East, all on hilltops so that fires lit on the uppermost parapets could be seen by adjacent Crusader fortresses. As we were climbing up the hill we passed one of the ubiquitous donkeys used throughout Syria which prompted me to utter, "First time I've seen an ass on a Crac!"
