Frathole Is an Awesome Word

Word of the Day: Frathole

We've spent a lot of time analyzing a particular genus of the species douchebag. He is the club-dwelling, Ed Hardy-wearing, faux-hawk sporting guy who inexplicably gets the babes (well, a certain variety of babe, who probably deserves him). I can't believe that when we tried to come up with a replacement term for douchebag, among the many terms we considered, we didn't include the awesome frathole.

So "frathole" is a portmanteau word made from combining "fraternity" and "asshole." The only difference in this iteration of douchebag is that he's more likely to be dressed in Abercrombie & Fitch oxford shirts untucked just so over loose jeans while inevitably sporting flip flops. And obviously, his habitat is a college campus or local beer joint. The other wonderful thing about having discovered the word frathole at this late date is all the words that are associated with it, including: fraternitool, fraterniture, frathoe, fratmosphere, and fratnanigans. Sample sentence: "The fratmosphere at Abercrombie & Fitch is oppressive."
