So apparently bahaha is the new, cool way to show that you’re laughing when you’re online or texting. Hahaha wasn’t quite getting the point across, so the hipsters went ahead and changed it to bahaha. I don’t like it. It seems like an unnecessary change. Hahaha is an example of onomatopoeia, it’s the sound of laughter spelled out. I’ve never heard anybody laugh out lout with a B sound. Bahaha isn’t a natural spelling of human laughter. It’s more reminiscent of a cackling chicken. I don’t like bahaha. I refuse to convert. I will stick to the more traditional hahaha or LOL. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
