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
