CountrIES (With IES people ;-))

No actually, as "lol" is actually an abbreviation for "Laugh/Laughing Out Loud" and hence will not appear as a "word" in any dictionary. If it does then it is incorrect. It may well already appear in an abbreviations section. Smile

Oh shut up, you .... Wink

She was the one who got it in. Smile

But it;s a word from cricket. To get stumped is to get put out is it not? I found this online......... PERHAPS on the off chance the last meaning "To cause to be at a loss" was because of JK but personally i doubt it very much.

v. stumped, stumpĀ·ing, stumps
v. tr.
To reduce to a stump.
To clear stumps from: stump a field.
To stub (a toe or foot).
To walk over heavily or clumsily.
To traverse (a district or region) making political speeches.
To shade (a drawing) with a stump.
To challenge (someone); dare.
To cause to be at a loss; baffle: stumped the teacher with a question.

Said she popularised it. :P
