Way too many at my Uni and all.
Elasticated cuffs over my FCUK socks for #max #toastiness. Haters can't knock me off my grinding. #ukcosyathletesfootscene
It is spot on. Likes shit Top 40 music, check. Talks about such macho clothes like Chinos and Topman, check. Admiration of TOWIE cast, check.
My green Superdry bodywarmer is still damp from last night. How can I be #thegreenbantern now? Phoning Trading Standards, false advertising.
it's only shabs and bants at the end of the day.
You're well mental! I've never heard such banter from a LAD since that time I chundered and was hanging the next day!
...while your cock rots away from neglect.
They seem to favour places in Leeds like Halo, Oceana and all the shite included in this year's Carnage, that plays soulless shite chart music.
It must take some creativity and imagination to be able to have a great time in such God-awful places.
Maybe they are more the sport type, just because you don't have a lifestyle similar to theirs does not mean that they are bellends.
Although "music" is quite a generous way of describing the shit they listen to.
But it's not their taste that makes them bellends. It's their whole loud, annoying, faux-macho, "look at me, I drink lager and use regional slang" thing that irritates me.
Is about as stale as calling someone gay, or blurting out a "your mum" joke.
i got nothing
mocking laddish banter is pretty stale too though, just a bit late to the game feel to it, its almost as cliche as the antics being mocked, guess if its your first encounter with them though
No matter how many women a man has slept with, the combined IQ of said women is roughly the same. No?
Is the amount of people I know at uni that have liked it on facebook
'Whilst it is true that having a girlfriend is almost a certain contradiction to the LAD lifestyle, there are a few advantages of having a girlfriend. The obvious ones are there, you have a beer bringer, a sandwich maker, a warm flat to crash at instead of the mile long trek home after a night out.'
I'm all for jocular chauvinism - but, i get the feeling that's not at all jocular
"But then you feel overcome with shame when you imagine her naked and get a semi."
Anyone who likes that website must is a tedious twat.
but Balotelli, for once, really is a 'fucking legend'
Would people bang on about how much of a legend he is if he played for Man United? Or would they think he's an attention seeking knob?
HE BOUGHT THE WORLD'S BIGGEST SCALEXTRIC SET
She is impossibly beautiful, and her body is something you have only ever seen on the internet.
can we never war against each other on here again? We need to present a united front against a culture this disturbing.
it's obvs not real but it might still be encouraging bad dudes. Down with it I say
I fucking hope not. JFC
a great bunch of lads
and attitudes, there is a disturbing undercurrent of extreme judgement and bitchiness. I'm not judging you, I do it myself but I keep trying to stamp it out and stop myself doing it.
I've watched myself sneer at those wearing elasticated jeans or chinos. They're only clothes - they could be fucking lovely people(this could be punctuated in all sorts of ways).
I blame the internet.
there's what 16 basic personality types, a few of them loud and extroverted and probably correlate with laddishness, with lots of people belonging to those types, not being one of those types and judging those that are is kinda arrogant its not like we have much choice over our personalities.
Judging taste in music is abit off as well, the first music I liked would embarrass me now but I liked it at the time, someone who spends all there time and money seeking out great music probably doesnt get anymore enjoyment out of it than someone who just stuck with whatever in the chart/club caught there ear, and even if not probably enjoy things I dont like sport, cars or whatever
Where he's talking about how he was on the tube. He was dressed how he normally dresses. Glasses, baseball cap, with headphones on top. With his big beard, generally looking like a mixture between a hobo and a hipster. He looks opposite and there's a chav, like a proepr london chav. Dressed in black & gold tracksuits with massive gold dangly earings eating a mcdonalds. He looked at her and thought, 'what is she doing with her life'.
Then in that moment he saw that she was looking at him and thinking exactly the same thing about him.
I get that exact same vibe when I meet and experience 'lads', especially 'unilads'. So I just don't really bother to judge them anymore, because they're judging me too. So you may as well just lower any prejudices and just try and get on with them, or at least accept them. It's just a bit pathetic really, getting annoyed over little things. Though to be fair that last sentence describes the majority of DiS threads and most of my rants in life.
but despise the term lad?
Coffee, Robinson's, milkshakes?
spot the rapists now
Think you'll find banterous lads have more fun.
Happy new shabs.
go on lads, have a good one
There was this guy, king of the pikeys with a crown of triangular hair, throwing cans of lager around with no care for who they hit, insulting his friend's wife/girlfriend while she had a baby on her knee, and proclaiming loudly that he was going to hijack the bus and kill everyone, and that "No-one's gonna tell me not to be a tosser. If I want to be a tosser I'm going to be a fucking tosser."
Those loudmouth indie guys you see with asymmetrical but office-ready haircuts who bang on about banter constantly would probably cry like a small girl at the slightest hint of a ruckus. They're just taking on the mannerisms of dickheads without the balls to back it up, which makes them only slightly less of a dickhead.
bants are about funtime, not scrapping. that's poor banter and poor form all in one.
the tiniest of benders can have steady banter, regardless of his ability to floor people.
loudmouth wankers =/= archbishabs of banterbury
had enough now, sorry everyone.
Stealing a traffic cone, wearing it on your head then clingfilming your mates room? MENTAL. EPIC.
One of my huge lad mates DESTROYED another in a bants exchange with a single put-down:
Ie. making veiled references to rubbish footballers at any given opportunity.
but the guy in question's behaviour is just taking that casual misogyny, insult-hurling thing to its logical conclusion. You can't just cherry-pick what you like about being a swaggering alpha arsehole, still like Belle & Sebastien and call yourself a LAD.
I admit that I've pretty much got no banter, but then I'd rather have an intelligent conversation with another bloke rather than just trading insults about their mums.
