The 40-year-old Lad is an Irish lad aged in his 40s. He carries a pink umbrella that he uses to smack people with if they don't do an Irish jig while smoking a pipe. It may be that he's a leprechaun. Like all other BLAAARGH! freaks, he is a Grape of High Authority, even though he hit Count Grapeula on the head with his umbrella, which ISN'T of high authority.
