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!

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

They range from early teens to mid 20's. They wear nautica or polo hats, t-shirts, shorts and nike TN's. You always know a "real" lad when there is a whole on the back of their polo shirt because they had to rip off the store sensor to steal it. They hunt in packs and often "staunch" individuals or weak people. Their slang is pig latin, they smoke winfeild dark blues and spit alot.
"eshyays adlay"
"im pinging lad"

A phrase overused by middle/upper class Jack Willis wearing twats conveying their faux-machismo, those who like any music that is played in Yates or other shitty mainstream clubs whilst trying to retain credibility by liking Indie such Oasis and The Stone Roses...because those bands are popular amongst football fans, and what kind of "lad" wouldn't want to fit in with the football crowd. Act like they're salt of the earth when they're actually at Uni, courtesy of mummy and daddy and their money. Usually seen chatting up a vapid airhead who dresses like a supermodel in a put on regional accent (they never forget to use as much regional slang as they can!), who is drawn in by his "charms" because she is so void of personality. Usually thinks Inbetweeners is cutting edge TV, sees Cook from Skins as a role model and is more interested in Pete Doherty's tabloid habits than his actual music which they haven't actually heard, despite professing their love for The Libertines. Pinnacle of annoying loudmouth, they can usually be seen outside a takeaway at 3AM bellowing at each other because it's "banter", a word they overuse to the point of deserving to be punched.
"I had a well mental night last night lad! I went to Oceana with the lads and did 26 shots! I was hanging! Then I bumped into this Southern pansy who didn't like the checkered shirt I was wearing, so I said 'get t'fuck, laddeh' and I think he was intimidated by my accent cos I'm a proper Northerner, but it was just a bit of banter! Then I met this bird - see how I use the word 'bird'? Cos I'm a proper lad and did I mention how I'm from up North too? Anyway she looked like Amy Childs but fitter and with bigger tits! BANTER! She says that she loves my woman's clothes that I'm always wearing, which I bought from Topman. Anyway, I left with the lads and bought some chips, but then we had some well epic banter by throwing them at each other! Top night lads! Mental! Now I have to phone mummy for some money as I spent all my student loan at Topman"
