How to use lad in a sentence?

  1. Paddy Pimblett:

    I woke up on Friday morning 4 a.m. to a message one of my friends back home killed himself. This was 5 hours before my weigh-in. So Ricky, lad, that’s for you.

  2. Kellie Maloney:

    I was always trying to be the best and be seen as a jack-the-lad... because I was always hiding something, I could never ever let my defenses down, the manager of the heavyweight boxing champion of the world being a transsexual would have been some headline and a story that would have run for quite a while.

  3. Anthony Joshua:

    I feel good. The weigh-in is important but as heavyweights it don't really matter... skills pay the bills, he's a big lad, they should make a super-heavyweight division.

  4. Piara Powar:

    There's a strand of male culture you see in the UK, and to some extent other Anglo Saxon societies, prevalent among 20, 30 and even 40-year-olds, which is : you go abroad, you drink a fair amount, you sing songs and engage in banter, and pick on someone who is different to you, there's this pervasive sexism and racism. The idea that' anyone who isn't like us, we're going to sing about them and insult them and it's part of the lad's day out.'.

  5. Jack Reynolds:

    I’m a big, strong lad, and I’ve had plenty of needles in me in my time in various places.
