Explanation:
Estranha palavra.


No dicionário da Porto Editora LOLÓ significa "homem efeminado" (gíria)

No dicionário Michaelis LÓLÓ significa "menor, ladrão e pederasta passivo".


Sem mais contexto torna-se difícil encontrar a ideia exacta.

Um tipo de narcótico


Explanation:
Apenas complementando a resposta acima, "loló" ou "cheirinho da loló" é uma mistura de eter, clorofórmio e perfume barato usada como entorpecente. Também conhecida como "lança-perfume" ou simplesmente "lança", em referência ao produto descrito acima pelo colega que teve sua venda proibida em 1960 exatamente por conter eter em sua composição.
