Kek means lol. It comes from World of Warcraft where the two opposing factions (Horde and Alliance) were made to speak mutually unintelligibile languages so as to prevent enemy players from communicating; when someone from Horde typed "lol", an Alliance player would see him say "kek". The other way around (i.e. Alliance speaking to Horde) would render "lol" as "bur", however kek became the popular one. On the Internet this further mutated to forms like kik, kekw, topkek etc. Nowadays in some places such as 4chan kek seems to be used even more than lol, it's the newer, "cooler" way of saying lol.
