Earlier today I highlighted the incredibly scattershot and unconvincing nature of the evidence regarding the meaning of the word “boof.” True, to some folks that word had a sexual meaning in the 1980s, but several sources say they knew it to mean something else. It’s a funny-sounding word and different people used it in different ways.
Over at NRO’s news section, Jack Crowe notes letters to the Judiciary Committee that even more compellingly establish that Kavanaugh told the truth about “Devil’s Triangle.”
Two men who went to college with one of Kavanaugh’s high-school classmates (and knew Kavanaugh socially as well in the ’80s and ’90s) say this classmate taught them a drinking game with that name. That classmate and three others write separately that they made up the game during their time at Georgetown Prep:
“Devil’s Triangle” was a drinking game we came up with in high school. It was a variation on the game “Quarters.” When we played “Devil’s Triangle,” four people sat at a table. On the table, three small glasses of beer were arranged next to one another to form a triangle. Each of the four participants took turns being the “shooter.” The shooter attempted to bounce a quarter into one of the glasses.
So, six people have now said publicly that they played a drinking game called Devil’s Triangle that originated at Kavanaugh’s high school. Time to retire that one.
