Twitter Users School Brett Kavanaugh On Real Meanings Of 'Boof' And 'Devil's Triangle'

The Supreme Court nominee's definitions in his Senate hearing of "flatulence" and a game similar to "quarters" draw some snickers on Twitter.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh probably didn’t expect his testimony Thursday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to hinge on the meaning of two slang words.

But there he was, explaining the finer points of “boof” and “devil’s triangle” to Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).

However, many Twitter users insist Kavanaugh’s definitions are incorrect, and let him know it.

In the video below, Kavanaugh claimed his use of the word “boof” referred to flatulence, while a “devil’s triangle” is a drinking game similar to quarters.  

However, many Twitter users disagreed, insisting the definitions were much, much more risque.

One woman felt that Kavanaugh’s definitions of “boof” and “devil’s triangle” were relevant to him sitting on the nation’s highest court.

Another guy summed up what many Americans might be silently thinking today.
