All the words for laughing outside of laughing are bad

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Look at this:

chuckle
giggle
snicker
snort
whoop
chortle
guffaw
titter



They all sound like some midwestern housewife invented them. Anytime i have to read any of those in a book or article i get mildly angry. This needs to be fixed. New words to describe all kinds of laughter need to be invented in english.

Odd that only one brand of candy bar has realized what a gold mine of product names this list is.

I’d gnaw on a guffaw.

How about the expressions that indicate how hard someone laughed at something? Like, "I died laughing" or "I was crying." I think those particularly suck.
