Besties Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King have officially proved they can keep up with modern-day slang.

The dynamic duo—who commemorated their 40-year friendship in this month’s issue of O, The Oprah Magazine—also sat down for a hilarious video where they try define slang terms, like “lit.”

“Lit means it’s really great, it’s really fun,” King says.

“We know what that is,” Winfrey adds.

They then hilariously go on to correctly define “shade,” “secure the bag” and “thicc.” But the one word that stumped both of them was “snack.”

After King and Winfrey shared their favorite snacks—BBQ potato chips, and popcorn with truffles respectively—they enjoyed finding out that it means “someone who looks good at the moment.”

“But you’re saying someone really looks [good] like you want to eat it up because it’s attractive?” King says. 

“Okay, I didn’t know that. That’s good,” Winfrey says.

“Oh, I just had lunch with somebody who is a real snack … I’m not going to say who it is either. That was a meal,” Winfrey adds

“He’s a whole buffet,” King says, adding to the metaphor.

The current friendship issue of the magazine is the first time King was also on the cover. For almost every single 230 covers of O, The Oprah Magazine, Winfrey has been featured alone.

That’s lit!
