Autosomal Matches

Hello folks. I'm new to this website/service. Just looking for a little clarity. 

I uploaded my autosomal dna from another site and got matched with some individuals here at about 23cms. So somewhere in the 2nd-4th cousin range.

The explanation Geni gives me is that "So-and-so is your first cousin thrice removed's wife's fifth cousin's wife's uncle's wife's great nephew's wife's half brother."

This doesn't make any sense since. Is the site giving false matches, or am I misunderstanding?
