n. One who, in an attempt to look cool amongst his or her peers, will claim to consume massive quantities of beer at a party, all the while leaving a majority of the cans half-full and strewn about haphazardly, so as to "hide the evidence" of doing so. Often, when caught, the offender will offer the excuse of not enjoying the "warm swill", or porf, at the bottom of the can. The assumption is that a frates will seem cooler by having "had" a whole case of beer, and will score later that on that night with multiple pigs, or babes with questionable morals.
v. The act of casually, violently, or discreetly tossing , hurling, or dropping a half-full can of beer into the bushes, high-grass, sand, or parking lot, announcing too loudly, "Guy, gimme another bee-ah! I'm so wasted, guy!"
The act of fratesing is an attempt to hide the fact that the whole beer is not empty (a party foul), and the loud proclamation is camoflage for the loud "doink" of the half-full aluminum can of (usually) cheap beer.
n. One day at a party , Scott was seen quite often reaching into the cooler to grab another cold one. All the fellas were impressed at his alcohol consumption skills, and marveled at the fact that he was still capable of "scamming" the chicks - he even did the "Cruz Lean" a few times!! That is, until he was outed as a Frates when somebody noticed all the beer gurgling out of his last so-called empty! "Guy, what a Frates you are!" (such a shame)
v. Scott, not wishing his buddies to know that he did NOT enjoy the last few swallows of his beer, or to look like a "Sally", fratesed his beer over his shoulder into the bushes. He followed this up with a hearty "Guy, that was my 23rd beer!" All the girls thought he was so cool!
