Who loves ya, baby?
The Yacht Fascist.
I wanted to ask this when I saw the title of the thread. Are geezers and lads closely related, like species within a genus? Or is it a case of parallel evolution, like the Tasmanian wolf?Luke still hasn't explained the difference between a lad and a geezer.
Yeah, I like it shortened to a single syllable.Geezer is East London/Essex, essentially. And can just mean "boy" ("who's that geezer?").
Just like in many places "lad" is more like "boy" (i.e. male children, teenagers and young adults) than the macho beery NUTS mag reader.
But adding "a" in front of them ("what a geeze", "what a lad!") changes things - nobody really says "what a geezer" ironically, unlike "lad" (its very easily an insult). Otherwise it can mean "legend"/"hero".
And thus ends my catechism.
