This word describes the drunken physical mind set, movement and actions of an extremely damaged individual.

Similar to getting totally T-Rex'd, when one does the mantis they are much more socially awkward yet still very much involved in conversation with friends or while on the pull.

This epic state of drunk foolishness although hilarious does have the drawback of disregarding any thought of invading other people's personal space.

It is not unusual to find the mantis on the floor refusing to call a night 2 days into the sesh!
Everybody do the mantis!
Let's go out and get totally mantis'd tonight!
Dan youre an absolute mantis lad!
