How does one interpret "mfw" when no face is given? Or any of those acronyms that are usually paired with images


Disgust at the user for using such terms.


You're supposed to imagine the relevant face. It's just a super lazy alternative to using reaction images.


In a way it reminds me of context-required sentences in Japanese since you're expected to understand what's being conveyed by that possibly catch-all term.


It means it's one of those faceless old men- protect your anus!


you should ask #jp


My sister and I were talking about that the other day. It's a big part of why Japanese is so hard to translate. So much of it is either implied and/or expressions that only make sense if you know Japanese culture. "Translating" Japanese often means finding the broad meaning of the original and then writing something completely different that conveys that meaning.
