    There is nothing wrong with the sentnce, but can you die laughing unless you have a massive heart attack which is a remote possibilty.

    It's used for other people: "They laughed themselves to death!"
    For myself, if I had to use it, I'd say "I almost laughed myself to death". That would save me from having to explain why I'm around to talk about it.

    Sounds like Eliza Doolittle's dad, an East London resident.
