Is a term used to describe sad, subjacent, illiterate adolesents between the ages of 12-20, who live in australia.
They are characterised by polo/nautica shirts (with collar popped), caps (tilted upwards), jeans/tracks (lowrider, baggy style), asinine hair cuts and their "nigga" attitudes & "badass" personalities...hence, they are normally school dropouts...

Normally, they group together in mobs between 3-20, trying to act, talk and walk "hard" to impress their company.

Lads are usually found during daylight hours, in or near, Maccas, shopping complexes, fubu/kappa/nike retailers. Acting to immtimate normal shop patrons, with such phrases as "what brah" "shank ya" "f*ck c*unt".
They usually retreat back home at dusk, afriad of meeting someone darker in skin colour or more sizable then themselves.

A typical lad is sh*t scared if someone, does not seem "rattled" by their "scare tatics" (both verbally and physically) and responds in force. (the lad usually runs away)

Some Lads are said to be androgynous... but thats still debated
Lad: Wat'cha want brah, ill shank you
Person: Shut the f*ck up lad
Lad: (runs away)

Lebo: Look bro, theres some lads over there, lets go bash em'
Lads: (spots lebo group and "hauls ass"

Person: Look at those lads over there... so typical.. polo shirt

Lad at maccas: (stares down a bystander) Wat'ya lookin at brah?
Bystander: (Gets up, walks over) What you say?
Lad: Sorry sir...

Person 1: Those lads are always at cremorne maccas
Person 2: Yeah, man, they basically live here
Person 3: What sad f*cks

Commonly used to refer to larey British young adults. In modern culture however, the word takes on a greater meaning. The distinction between a "Good Lad" and a "Shit Lad" are socially judged between fellow Lads, and "Good Lads" are only awarded to those deserving respect. Admittedly this can often mean womanizing, though, to contemporary Lads, masculine-yet-chivalrous acts take on higher precedence.

Lad anecdotes can be seen and rated on truelad.com
"Walking towards a bloke arguing with his girlfriend down some shitty alley, he shouts at her and slaps her across the face, so I walk up to him and fucking twat him, just absolutely floor him. Righting wrongs LAD"

The most disgusting, scum of the earth, pieces of shit. They think they are top shit but everyone else thinks that they are complete losers. A dissapointment not only to Australia, but to the human race. They wear white caps, strippy polo shirts and dirty sneakers. They are usually skinny and look weak. They usually hang around train stations or shopping centres, tagging walls and speaking their own complete fuckwittage language. If there could be any law in Australia, it should be to make these little pieces of shits go to some shitty little island where they can listen to their shitty music music, take their shitty little pills and just shit all over each other.
LADS ARE TAKING OVER, WE MUST DESTROY THEM

Look at their fashion sense, eurghh seriously go and wear some jeans or something...

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*

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.
