    I say both 'lar' and 'lad' as part of my natural vocab, but say lid all the time jestfully. So voting for the other option.

    Problem is, I don't get to say it much on the forums because most of you ***** are older than me.

    I reckon the only acceptable word out of the three is Lad. Lar is just eliminating the use of the D in lad, and lid is replacing the A for an I. Lad was obviously where all of the words dervive from. I use lad naturally in life. I'm voting for Lar

    Never heard lid before, NFI what the hell it means. Scouse bloke at work uses lad far too much, almost as much as I use man in the same vein. Conversations between use are epically insightful

    'Alright lad?'
    'Aye, you alright man?'
    'aye, sound'

    As a denizen of the fens I usually use our preferred regional alternative of "boy" (hence the username, as it goes), which should, correctly, be pronounced "buh".

    & "lid" is rhyming slang: bin lid = kid.

    I say Lad fairly often, but whenever I speak to Richard I address him as Sir, so will vote that for the purposes of this thread.

    have absolutely no idea, although you would probably say "lid" instead of lad if you were from New Zealand....

    Yeah use the term 'lad' to describe someone who is a bit of a Jack-the-lad round these parts.
