hmm.. This is very interesting. I had no idea that the "get out" could
be used this way too.

While I was wondering about the "get out" meaning of {lel}, the {Haw'}
came to my mind, and momentarily I wondered what would the difference
be, between {lel} and {Haw'}.

Anyway, now I understand. Thanks.
