"Right angle” doesn’t mean “correct” angle, but there are jokes.

“Geometry is actually pretty cool. You just have to look at it from the Right Angle” was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on September 14, 2021.

Wikipedia: Right angle

In geometry and trigonometry, a *right angle* is an angle of exactly 90° (degrees), corresponding to a quarter turn. If a ray is placed so that its endpoint is on a line and the adjacent angles are equal, then they are right angles. The term is a calque of Latin *angulus rectus*; here rectus means “upright”, referring to the vertical perpendicular to a horizontal base line.

Until I saw this, I found geometry acutely obtuse but now I can finally look at it from the right angle.

Sorry for the protracted response.

Yeah. If you’re not obtuse, geometry is a lot of fun.
