I in turn found it really funny listening to my sister talk with her friend, because they'd *say* internet things. You know there are those things that you write, but it sounds really stupid to say out loud? My sister would say them out loud. Like saying OMG or WTF out loud just seems like more work than actually saying "Oh my God" or "What the Fuck". Or there was this one commercial on the radio last year that drove me batty because they said "LOL".
But when I think back on it, there are some internet terms that I say the short form of too. Like OTP. To me OTP sounds a lot less dorky than "One True Pair" so if for whatever reason I have to say it out loud, I say OTP.
