Pl

1. What is PL short for?

Punchline

When you're discussing jokes or comedy, PL is short for punchline. A punchline is the final portion of a joke that, when delivered correctly, sets audiences laughing.

For example, in the joke below, "I'm lonely. I really wish my friends were back here." is the PL:

"Three guys who are stranded on a desert island happen upon a magic lamp. The men rub the lamp, and the genie inside appears. To be fair, the genie decides he'll grant each of the men one wish.

The first guy wishes he was off the island and back home. The second guy quickly wishes the same. The third guy, however, says 'I'm lonely. I really wish my friends were back here.'"

(This and many other PLs should be accompanied by a rimshot.)

Example

"That joke was so funny. What a killer PL."

2. What is pl short for?

Playlist

Pl is short for "playlist," which is a list of media, such as songs or videos, to be played. The media may be played sequentially, shuffled (random play), or looped (repetitive play).

Playlists were originally utilized by radio and television stations to organize songs and videos to be re-played. But as personal computers, media devices (iPods), music services (Napster and iTunes), and the Internet spread, everyday users began creating and sharing playlists to playback their media.

Soon, playlists became digital mixtapes, especially as music-streaming services, like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and TIDAL emerged. Users can now make and share music playlists from almost all recorded tracks for all sorts of genres and moods.

Some examples of different types of music playlists include dancing, exercising, getting pumped up for a game, studying for school, and setting a romantic mood. You may also make a video pl for when you need to be cheered up and YouTube is your only available friend.

Example

"Can you share your indie pl with me? I'm obsessed with that mix."
