Kavanaugh Slammed For Saying ‘Devil’s Triangle’ Is A Drinking Game When It Really Means A Threesome

And the word "boof" is used to describe anal sex, not flatulence.

Published September 28, 2018

Brett Kavanaugh's testimony during the Sept. 27 hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee had several moments that caused viewers to raise their eyebrows. However, during one particular question, Kavanaugh was asked about something called "Devil's Triangle" as it was noted in his yearbook. While Kavanugh said the phrase was a drinking game similar to "Quarters," people on Twitter said it's actually the term used for a threesome. 

During the entire hearing, Kavanaugh made it abundantly clear that he likes to drink beer...a lot of beer. When he was asked about the "Devil's Triangle" note in his yearbook, Kavanaugh quickly brushed it off as a drinking game. 

  1. While the Judiciary committee may have accepted his answer, people with access to Urban Dictionary did not

    In addition to Urban Dictionary, Wikipedia also refers to the Devil's Triangle as "a colloquial term for a sexual threesome consisting of one woman and two men."

  2. However, someone edited the Wikipedia page to include Kavanaugh's response
  3. Additionally, many people took also questioned Kavanaugh's definition of the word boof, a term he said meant "fart"

    Considering both informal definitions of the terms used in Kavanaugh's yearbook deal with alcohol or sex in some capacity, it stands to reason that the judge should be further questioned about the sexual assault allegations against him.
