A social gathering of college students taking place at a fraternity house, the frat party has several unbending rules:

  1. Alcohol will flow like there is no tomorrow. Most commonly, one will find several kegs of beer, a bar that is well-stocked with hard liquor, and some sort of generic, alcoholic fruit punch. Slightly less common, but still widespread are funnels, used to pour mass quantities of liquid into the mouth of a willing drinker and a luge, where the drink is poured into the top of a lane, and flows down into the drinker's mouth (the luge is sometimes carved from ice to chill the liquid on it's way down). Sometimes if it's a really wild party, people will swallow goldfish.
  2. Not everyone will be admitted. Males who are not associated with the frat are required to be on the guest list. Females will always get in.
  3. Frat brothers will usually card people on their way into the frat house. Under age? Don't let it get you down. This is done solely in case of the unexpected arrival of the campus police. You'll still be able to get sloshed, as those dispensing the drinks don't pay attention anyway.
  4. The house will be dark and hot. There will be music so loud, you will need to scream to be heard. At least one person, maybe 20, will do a keg stand. There will be much vomiting outside in the bushes, as no one will be able to get near the bathrooms.
  5. Males will be wearing their money shirts, hoping to impress the ladies with their clothing style. Females will be wearing next to nothing. After all, it _is_ hot in here.
  6. People will start disappearing, usually two by two (of course, this depends on how wild the party is) into the bedrooms. At this point in the evening, there is usually a half-inch thick layer of sludge on the floor, composed of dirt from people's shoes and beer spilled on the floor while dancing.
  7. After a short time, taxis will be called for people still there who have not found someone to spend the night with.
  8. Massive cleanup follows the next day when everyone has recovered from his hangover.
  9. People will talk about how that was "The Best Party Ever" for approximately 5 days, or at least until the next frat party.
