“If you’re in a cold room, stand in the corner. It’s 90 degrees”

"If you’re in a cold room, go stand in the corner. It’s 90 degrees” is a geometry joke that has been printed on many images. “Why do Aggies/blondes stand in the corner when they are cold? Because it’s 90 degrees there” was posted to the newsgroup alt.humor.puns on May 21, 1997.

Wikipedia: Right angle
In geometry and trigonometry, a right angle is an angle that bisects the angle formed by two adjacent parts of a straight line. More precisely, if a ray is placed so that its endpoint is on a line and the adjacent angles are equal, then they are right angles. As a rotation, a right angle corresponds to a quarter turn (that is, a quarter of a full circle).
(...)
A right angle is equal to 90 degrees.
