    What does XD mean? I've googled it and have found a boatload of pages but no definition.

    If it's going to get you censored, can you PM enough clues so that I get it? :rofl:

    Could it be referring to Disney XD? Duckie says XD.

    Disney XD branded content will span television, online, mobile and VOD platforms. The programming includes series, movies and short-form, as well as sports-themed programming developed with ESPN. In the U.S., Disney XD is expected to reach over 72 million households via its basic cable affiliates.

    Try googling "Definition of XD". I got the following under the Urban Dictionary:


    A symbol with X being the eyes and D being the mouth, to make a seeming of the person having squinched eyes and a mouth wide open laughing. This is usually used to replace rofl, as the X for eyes indicates that they are laughing so hard they may have fallen off their chair. Usually used in mmorpgs and chat lines.
    Example 1:
    Person 1: Hah i hacked some n00b's account then went and spammed lots of people and got it reported!!1!

    Person 2: Omg XD haha he must be so ******!

    I asked Dan and he said it was a facial expression - similar to scrinching up your eyes or crossing them and laughing. - he said its supposed to look like
    but turn the D to the right one turn

    Thank you all!!! Andy - will make note to self to add "definition of" in my future google searches! XD ..... nope, definitely not as fun as :rofl:

    Marcie - when it comes to my beloved son, I have no preconceived notions anymore - it could have been something as innocuous as a smile all the way to some cryptic demonic sign. With him there's just no telling. I am a cork floating on the tsunami called thank you. ;)

    Well, thanks to you and the question, I learned Dan was into blogging. But I am not going to go look as I prefer to sit here and be clueless LOL

    That's a pretty stinky visual of a face. They could be more creative.

    I have a friend that only texts. It drives me nuts as it takes me 30 minutes to decipher the message. Why can't you just pick up the phone and CALL?
