Word of the Week: Natty Lads

Natty Lads is defined as:
Young thieves or pickpockets.
1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue by Francis Grose

This cant term could describe a few of my humanoid’s adorable cousins.  When one was five the natty lad tried to take his auntie’s pillow.  Please he begged adorably when caught and it worked too!

“See I was thinking that all ants were natty lads at a picnic.”

  1. I’m sorry to agree eL but I think HT has it here, nicking picnic sandwiches and Swiss Roll, you do get up to some tricks.

  2. Et tu? Humans think just because they slave over making picnic feasts it entitles them to eating it! Then I think from now on I should be a natty lassie and so should HT because those chips she is eating right now- SO not hers!
