Oh My God

A variation on OMG, it is a more enthusiastic and sarcastic way of saying OMG. Some say the Z doesn't stand for anything, but rather is added onto the O, making it pronounced as "ZOH MY GOD!! However, it actually comes from a gaming expression "ZERG OH MY GOD!" As in "they about to get pwnd by a mob."

It is online jargon, also known as text message shorthand, used primarily in texting, online chat, instant messaging, email, blogs, and newsgroup postings; these types of abbreviations are also referred to as chat acronyms.
