A young Australian man/boy, generally between the ages of 12 and 25, who, due to a lack of any real parenting or discipline, lack the social aptitude for any real friendly connection or meaningful relationships.
As they find it difficult to attract real people these individuals gather in large groups and prey on the small and the weak in an attempt to hide their inherent fear of their own weakness.
Easily distinguishable by their nautica, saucony, and other sporting brand clothing (ironic in that even the healthiest lad pulls enough cones and smokes enough cigarettes that even light exercise such as running from police and beating down 8 year olds with their mates tires them out); not to mention various other ridiculous clothing and hair choices such as the famed nike TN's, which take many dole payments to acquire, the nautica white cap, and, worst of all, the rats tail, which has in actual fact been proven to cause severe mental disability.
the lads female counterparts, known as "lasses" (luminary I know), are generally very similar to lads in the respect that their parents mistakes create a girl who, with no self respect or ability, allow these lads (many at the same time), to stick them with their miniscule, unprotected excuses for penis's.
this in turn creates a new generation who, with their teen parents unable to provide them with even the most basic education in any academic or moral sense, turn into even worse versions of the preceding generation.
this is a vicious cycle as this causes a rapid degeneration of social behaviour in sydneys western suburbs.
As already mentioned, lads are known to roam in large groups and single out those who they sense are weaker then they are (with 10 of their mates), this list of weaker people involves women (though in many cases they still get their asses kicked), elderly people (who still can sometimes successfully fight back), children (same goes), and the mentally and physically handicapped (im sure you can guess what this caption alludes to by now =P).
They can usually be found in three places, namely any train station, as this proximity to transportation allows them to mobilize to other towns for parties or gang bash/rapes, on the trains themselves, where they amuse themselves by playing rave music on their phones, attempting to pick up, and tagging, and finally, at every damn party i seem to go to, where they insist on fighting everyone.
it is unknown from whence the lads originated, however, in a few short years they have spread from the western suburbs of sydney to lithgow in the upper blue mountains. if this trend continues it could turn into a countrywide epidemic of massive proportions, but as soon as the NSW government passes laws legitimizing their eradication as vermin the issue will be quickly resolved.
Or so we can only hope.
words cannot describe just how massively lads fail
An Australian term used to describe teenagers who wear a nautica, polo or nike white hat, tilted upright revealing the front of their hair with the strap at the back done up tight so it is dangling out the back, a striped polo or nautica shirt with the collar popped and either saucony or nautica trackies or shorts, topped off with nike Tnz which are fresh. These lads think they are tough but are generally small and skinny and travel in packs trying to roll other innocent bystanders for their worth.
The lad threatened the innocent bystander by saying 'Wat bra! i'll shank ya lad', after completing his theft he headed up to a blank wall and began to graffiti.
A lad is a male who specialises in creating and distributing exquisite banter. Though most lads are youngish (late teens and early twenties) age is not a defining characteristic and you will find both young lads and old lads. Some special skills of lads include, but are not limited to the following:
- Binning Pints
- Exposing genitalia and getting naked in public places
- Throwing up after copious alcohol consumption
- Spousal Abuse
- Getting kicked out of pubs/nightclubs for being overly offensive
Excelling in all areas will earn a lad the title of "top lad". There is no higher praise that can be bequeathed upon an individual.
"That guy just saw off a whole bottle of Vodka then partyboyed that bird, what a lad!"
"Andy got kicked out of City for binning his pint, then turtling naked on the dancefloor...LAD"
Lad: An australian youth subculture centred around individuals who hang out in gangs, engage in petty theft, pick fights, vandalise property and use foul language which generally involves a great deal of pig latin. Hence the terms "adlay" and "eshays". Lads generally wear white caps tilted up at the front to show the front part of their hair which is often gelled. The strap of the cap is done up tight at the back and the possibility of a rats tails or other such hair style dangling out the back is common. They can be seen wearing white polo shirts, or polo shirts of other colours with short shorts (striped parachute/tracksuit pants in winter) and trainers. They sport brands such as Nautica, Saucony, Nike and Everlast and in addition to this wear ridiculously small bags usually scrawled with graffiti. 'Lads' are now commonplace is many areas of Sydney including but not limited to the inner west, outer west, north west, south and south-west. 'Lads' can be found in most high schools throughout the Sydney metropolitan area, they have a gang mentality which enables them to gain physical superiority over other groups and subcultures and are disliked by the general population. They can often be seen hanging around train stations and shopping centres or just roaming the streets in search of trouble. Lads are generally into rave music and in particular hardstyles such as gabber. They also engage in tagging as graffiti is a large part of the subculture. Lad girls wear similar cloth...more...
The British version of guy
"that lads gay"
Lads are usually teenagers that fail in school and drop out, spending their lives 'bumming' around the same place 7 days a week.
They can be spotted by their white caps (usually of polo brand) tilted up showing the front of their hair. Also they wear shorts (also of polo or nautica brand) no matter what season it is, they wear them even when it is snowing, they also wear polo or nautica shirts, with the collar popped up and lastly they wear sports shoes, in most cases nike TN's.
man that party was so sh*t, yeh man all those lads and their sh*t taste in clothes, it was -10c and they still wear shorts
Guys that think theyre hard. They generally wear Sports caps, stripy polo shirts, footy shorts or nike trackpants and Nike Tns. They go around starting fights with younger kids thinking it makes them look big, and gate crashing partys no one would invite them to. You'd find them hanging out front of shopping centres smoking and talking themselves up. Also Lass
which is the female lad. Lasses act and dress just like Lads.
Lads also have really small bags?
Person with a life:Those Lads and Lasses crashed my party!
Another Person with a life: i know ! i wish theyd just realise theyre not cool already *sigh*
An English phenonemon, lads hang around in packs, drink heavily, watch soccer and attempt to kill each other afterwards, enjoy pictures of bare naked laydeez while singing inane and tuneless songs all too loudly, such as...
Oh we are the lads, we are the lads, we are, we are, we are the lads!
