Congressional web address seemingly used to update the Wikipedia definition of ‘Devil’s Triangle’ to reflect Brett Kavanaugh’s PG-rated explanation of questionable term used in his yearbook

Congress is re-writing his-story.

Part of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings revolved around a posting in his high school yearbook referring to a “Devil’s Triangle.”




While a Devil’s Triangle is defined as a sex act involving two men and a woman in a decade-old posting on urbandictionary.com, Kavanaugh insisted under oath that it was a drinking game involving three glasses.

Evidence of any such drinking game was hard to find on the Internet — until 5:18 p.m. Thursday. That’s when someone with an IP address registered to the U.S. Congress, using a Twitter bot called congress-edits, anonymously added a definition of the term to Wikipedia that fits Kavanaugh’s explanation.

“’Devil’s Triangle,” a popular drinking game enjoyed by friends of judge Brett Kavanaugh,” was added to Wikipedia while the judge was defending his candidacy in from of congress.

The other Wikipedia entries for Devil’s Triangle refers to various TV programs, mostly dealing with the Bermuda Triangle. That’s an area near the island of Bermuda where shipwrecks are common.

A second Urban Dictionary definition of Devil’s Triangle defines it as a sex act between one man and one woman, but involving three cavities. There is no listing on that site of a drinking game called Devil’s Triangle.

Several entries in Kavanaugh’s Georgetown Prep yearbook came into question during his hearing, which was extended to include an allegation of sexual misconduct against the aspiring Supreme Court justice.

Another entry reads “Have you boofed yet?”

In some circles, including urbandictionary.com, “boofed” refers to anal sex. Kavanagh testified Thursday that wasn’t the context in which he used the word. Kavanaugh also downplayed his alleged heavy drinking in high school, though his yearbook caption cites him as the treasurer of the Keg City Club and declares “100 Kegs or Bust.”

Kavanaugh was on the stand defending himself against accusations of drunken sexual assault by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who said the judge attacked her at a high school party in the 1980s.
