Random information on the term “Sprout”:
In botany, shoots consist of stems including their appendages, the leaves and lateral buds, flowering stems and flower buds. The new growth from seed germination that grows upward is a shoot where leaves will develop. In the spring, perennial plant shoots are the new growth that grows from the ground in herbaceous plants or the new stem or flower growth that grows on woody plants.
In everyday speech, shoots are often synonymous with stems. Stems, which are an integral component of shoots, provide an axis for buds, fruits, and leaves.
Young shoots are often eaten by animals because the fibres in the new growth have not yet completed secondary cell wall development, making the young shoots softer and easier to chew and digest. As shoots grow and age, the cells develop secondary cell walls that have a hard and tough structure. Some plants (e.g. bracken) produce toxins that make their shoots inedible or less palatable.

Random information on the term “LAD”:
Lad culture (also laddish culture and laddism) is a British subculture initially associated with the Britpop movement. Arising in the early 1990s, the image of the “lad” – or “new lad” – was that of a generally middle class figure espousing attitudes typically attributed to the working classes. The subculture involves young men assuming an anti-intellectual position, shunning sensitivity in favour of drinking, violence, and sexism.
The term “new lad” was coined by journalist Sean O’Hagan in a 1993 article in Arena.
Part of “the postmodern transformation of masculinity … the 1990s ‘new lad’ was a clear reaction to the ‘new man’ … most clearly embodied in current men’s magazines, such as Maxim, FHM and Loaded, and marked by a return to hegemonic masculine values of sexism [and] male homosociality”. At a time when “men saw themselves as battered by feminism”, one could also consider that “laddishness is a response to humiliation and indignity … the girl-power! girl-power! female triumphalism which echoes through the land”.
