"AFAIC this is the MOTD and FWIW I am LMAO, so MHOTY Ben for this and TYVM.
IMHO this is also the top BLOG for the day. (TBTD!)"

My Translation:

"As Far As I'm Concerned" this is the "Message of the Day" and "For What It's Worth" I am "Laughing My Ass Off", so "My Hats Off To You" Ben for this and "Thank You Very Much". "In My Humble Opinion" this is "The Top BLOG for the Day".

My Comment:

Your comment shows the perfect use of the blog and by using it you were able to shorten your message (Lol!). The only problem is if the reader doesn't know well the "lingo" it will take more time to translate and understand it. (heheh. . . .) Thanks!
