' culture, the post-ironic lad (also known as the post-lad) is a parody of the stereotypical English lad. To this
end post-ironic lads still
partake in activities such
as hanging around in packs, drinking heavily, watching soccer
and attempting to kill each
other afterwards as well as enjoying pictures of bare naked women while singing inane and tuneless
songs all too loudly, the difference being that they do so ironically.
On first inspection it may seem that there
is no difference between the lad
and the post-ironic lad
, however on closer
inspection it becomes
clear that post-ironic lad banter
is generally more witty
than lad banter
and in the pursuit of greater irony is often more extreme. Additionally
post-ironic lad is generally younger than
lad and most importantly treats the 'lash
' as a true
way of life.
lad - "If you aren't drunk
in 5 seconds, I'm going to punch in the face!"
lad No.1 - "Hey lad, smash up that wardrobe there with
the shovel" Post-ironic
lad No.2 then proceeds to smash a wardrobe to pieces with
a shovel 'ironically'.
